MY Passport essential 3.0 500 Gb not recognized by TV digital receiver

Hi, I just bought a MY Passport essential 3.0 500 Gb. I attached it to the USB port of my TV digital receiver Telesystem 6290. The white light of the HDD is switched on, but the HDD is not recognized by the digital receiver.

Anyone can help me?

Kind regards,


My Passport external drives are not designed to work on system like yours.

They are intended for redundant file and folder backup on PCs with security features. You may be able to use these drives, if you hack them. (Repartition and reformat)
