Help with WD elements Desktop Formatting

Hi everyone,
I have a WD Elements Desktop 4TB hard drive on NTFS format. This hard drive used to work when I plugged it directly into my TV with its NTFS format. Recently I had to reformat it for a short time to FAT32, I then put it back to NTFS and now it's not working on my TV at all.

I'm just confused as to why it's not working with NTFS when it 100% worked fine before! If any of you have any idea why this may be happening please let me know!

Thanks
Beccy

WD should have the steps to format.

Let's find out.

http://support.wdc.com/KnowledgeBase/answer.aspx?ID=1550 refers us to article #3865 with more details for windows versions.

That looks right to me.

But about the TV. Many don't support such a large drive and may work when the drive's contents are under some unpublished limits (track, GB etc.)

I'd use a 1TB drive for the TV.
