You didn't give any make and model, so I can't be any more specific.
First time posting. I've had my Seagate 4TB Desktop External Hard Drive for about a year now and it's been working perfectly fine all along. I connect it to my JVC television and it plays MP4s, AVI, MKVs fine. I have about 1.2TB used at the moment.
About a week ago, it started acting up. Any new file I add to the hard drive, no matter the file extension, causes my TV to freeze when I try to play it. The file plays perfectly fine on my laptop.
Also if I add a new folder to the hard drive, none of the files in that folder show up on the TV - the folder appears to be empty. I plug out the hard drive from the TV, plug it in to my laptop and the files are all visible in the folder and I can play them all.
This is SO frustrating! Can anyone help me sort this out?I mean, if all the files play on my laptop and all the folders work on my laptop, that means my TV is the problem right? All the old files on the hard drive still play fine on the TV.
Thanks in advance!
