WD Passport not recognised on my TV


#1

Hi, I resently got my WD Passport. I use to have a different drive (different manufacturer) but had to many issue with it. It could play on my TV but somehow my WD isn’t recognised. Do you perhaps know why?


#2

You got the wireless passport?

Could be a number of reasons why it doesn’t work with your TV …

Your TV doesn’t GPT Partitioned Hard Drives … and only support older hard drives partitioned MBR which has a 2TB limitation.

Your TV may only support a Maximum hard drive capacity of 2TB … you haven’t said what capacity your WD Passport is ? :confused:

Your TV may only support certain file systems like FAT or FAT32 … again you haven’t said what file system format your hard drive is

Lot’s a guessing if you don’t post enough information.

I have a My Passport 1TB WD and in NTFS format. Its a possibility that my TV only supports FAT32


#5

it’s likely possible … but i don’t know what Brand or Model TV you have. ?

(My Panasonic 4K Ultra HD EX600 49" TV reads NTFS, exFAT and FAT32 formatted devices fine)

Check your TV User Manual or contact the manufacturer of your TV.
