I tried to connect the WD Elements HDD to my new Sony SmarTV usb port. The TV detected and supported the HDD so I was also capable of watching movies (.mkv, .avi, etc.). When I tried to connect the HDD through a 2 ft. usb 2.0 extension cable, my TV was not even capable to recognize it.
Do I need to use a usb 3.0 extension cable?
If so, does the length of the cable may affect the results?
Does WD have an original extension cables for sale?
Thanks in advance,
