Samsung LE32C350 adding HDD

by DianaLunten / February 1, 2011 1:17 AM PST

I have a Samsung LE32C350 TV, just bought it. I want to add a HDD with ~600GB. The HDD doesn't have a charging block, it turns on as it's connected to a device. Can I do it without modifiing the TV?

The HDD:
Name: Apacer
Size: 640GB
(image URL http://tehnoshop.lv/photos/226388_0.pjpeg)

TV:
Name: Samsung
Model: LE32C350
Type: LCD

Is there any way to connect the HDD to the TV without changing the model thru some settings? I don't want to mess up the TV!
Thank You!

DianaLunten,

Usually not. The LN32C350 (U.S. equivalent, I believe) supports only MSC class devices, like thumb-drives and flash card readers. I found that on P. 21 of the US manual, but it would be under "Advanced Features - Media Play" in the manual. It specifically states that USB (HDD) is not supported.

It may work if the format is FAT16/32 (larger drives are often NTFS formatted), but I have no way of knowing for any specific drive if it's compatible or not.

You say about the U.S. but I live in Europe.

DianaLunten,

And because regions vary, features may vary.

Did the "Advanced Features - Media Play" section of the owner's manual address this?

Well, that section of the anual DOES say that, but it says also, that only SOME External Hard Drives can be recognized. Is it worth the try? Happy

DianaLunten,

That decision is best made by you. Happy

That said, if you aren't sure of which drive to try, shop at a retailer that will allow you to return the unit in the event it's not compatible or doesn't fit your needs. I wish I had a list of devices, but there are literally hundreds of different devices.

I tried to add the external hard drive but it didn't work. I guess I will have to buy the 1.5TB one. It says it will work!

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
