Hi guys,
My bluray player bdp 7600/12 doesn't read my new WD passport 1 TB ( with 300 gb of mkv and avi files). WHY? I have a 8GB pendrive that can be easily red by my bluray player. I also red in the forum a message of a philips moderator that said that philips bluray players (7000 series) could read esternal hard disk up to 1 tb of memory. So why Can't I read mine? obviously it's formatted NTFS.

HELP!

I checked up in the manual: there is no reference about the maximum capacity supported. And in this post http://www.supportforum.philips.com/en/showthread.php?6343-BDP-7700-USB-HDD and in this http://www.supportforum.philips.com/en/showthread.php?5706-No-detection-of-USB-HDD-%283-5-quot-USB3-0-3TB%29 there are large indications that 1 TB is supported:

"We do have a clear Idea what we do support.
That up 1TB on USB Playback and up to 16TB for Recording.

Thomas"

And also:

"For Playback, we only support up to 1TB.

Sorry for the miscommunication.

Thomas"

So can any admin or moderator (or someone else!) answer me and tell me what he thinks about it??

Dear rufusvald,

Would like to have some more info.

1) Do you have USB 2.0 or USB 3.0?
2) What is the Power consumption of the external hard disk ( Does that exceed 500Ma?)

Thanks for your feedback

Think you have to check that with western. Btw do you have any strange partitions since it should perfectly work

Do you use HDD external power supply? I suggest you to use USB harddisk with external power supply. I made really bad experience with WD harddisks. Once they produced HDD and after selling in USA many customers have been complaining. Then they started to distribute free of charge Y cables, because WD Passport (not sure exactly which variant) has been draining about 900mA for 0.5secs after you start to write huge amount of consecutive data. Unfortunatelly it was USB 2.0 only which is able to deliver 500mA +- 10% according USB 2.0 spec. I'm almost sure Philips TVs have USB 2.0 connectors and your harddisk requires more since it is bigger one (only smaller less than 500GB do not drain often more than 500mA). USB 3.0 shall deliver 900mA (I guess your HDD is USB 3.0) and that contradicts with USB 2.0 on your BluRay player. That's why I guess it is not a problem of HDD formatting.

So the problem is 3.0? or it's the capacity of the drive? If i connect (for exemple) a 32 gb 3.0 pendrive, will it be red or not? it's better 2.0 32 gb pendrive?

OOOOO i finally solved guys! my fault, my fault!:eek: I had set the password on my wd passport so the blurayplayer could do anything to read it. Now i removed the protection and it works! Thank you everybody!
with love
