Hello,

I own 32" Philips tv. My model is 32pfl5606/58.
Yesterday I upgraded the fw to the latest version 2.25 and now my
3.5" external WD I use for video playback is no longer recognized. Whenever
I connect it is always displayed as empty. Other 2.5" drives and flashes are recognized just okay.

I believe a major change as discontinued 3.5" support should have been noted in the release
details.

If anyone could provide me with prior version of the firmware it would be greatly appreciated,
so that I can rollback.

Kind regards,
Dimitar

Hi,

- unplug HDD
- shut down tv and pull power cord
- wait 2 minutes
- start tv
- wait 2 minutes
- reconnect HDD

Thanks Alex,

I just tried that, but no change.

It is really weird, because the drive obviously spins, but is shown as empty. I even reformated the fat32 table but no changes. :(

Looks like to me that, software upgrades from philips do not add functions but remove them :(

can you read this HDD on your PC?
