Question

what type of memory stick do I use

My samsung 3d smart tv lets me put a memory stick (64gbz)in the USB socket, it formats it then tells me it is not compatible with the samsung system. It says I need a HDD USB. What is this and is my memory stick not HDD?
Thanks.
Bob.

Is this for recording?

If so, I recall that most units require a HDD and no, a memory stick is not a Hard Disk Drive.

I was thinking about high definition drive similar to the way 3 1/2 floppy drives were titled. Do you think an external drive from the computer shops would do this? I use my memory sticks on the computer in the same way as I would an external drive, I didn't think the computer knew the difference between them.

Sorry.

But it appears you are asking for how everything works. I can't fit that in this small space but a memory stick is wildly different from a Hard Disk Drive. To go beyond that won't fit in this small space.

As to your computer comment, it knows the difference and strives to keep that to itself. In the case of the TV the write speed may be too slow.
