My Passport Essential to work like an external hard drive with my TV


I Got a problem with my new External Usb Hd. I bought a My Passport Essential and i cant get it to work as a external hard drive with my TV. At first i thought it didnt work cuz of the WD SmartWare but then i disconnected the VCD and it still wont  work. Before i used a older version of My Passport series and it worked just fine with the TV.

Do i have to format it or something like that?

please help me cuz i bought it to use it like a media hd.
