Wd my book 3TB can't connect to tv

Hi all!

I have one problem: i just  bought one WD My Book 3TB and i want to connect to LG SMART TV 47LW5700. My tv does not recognize the hdd.

I have one message when i want to connect the hdd:

Pour utiliser la fonction LG Time Machine vous devez formater le peripherique de stockage USB (sorry french!)

Anybody know any solutions to resolve my problem?

Thanck all!

Video equipment frequently needs drives to be formatted FAT32 and may not handle drives larger than 2 T. Try posting in the TV section for more help. 



Joe_S is providing accurate guidance. You will need to confirm with the manufacturing brand of your Television set the supported parameters related to storage media, including maximum supported size, file system, and partition table.
