Hi BigRedTone,

Honestly, the problem may be the size of the drive. The fact that these TVs work with external hard drives is purely coincidental with that the fact that they were designed to work USB flash drives of 16, 32, or 64 GB. Sure, the terabyte drives work, but the TV takes an eternity to index them and then recheck their contents when accessing them again. So Bob's advice he often times gives is to go with a smaller drive: it'll connect up much more quickly that way.
