HI

havent had this drive long, my dilemah is : i downloaded movies to my macbook laptop (5.2), plugged in this drive (for Windows) on macbook laptop, my book asked me if i wanted to use time machine to back up my book, clicked no.

Next i went to my movie folder, did the highlight files, dragged n dropped to the DRIVE, wouldnt let me, box opened and said i need to use a Windows desktop.

SO unplugged, downloaded my movies to memory stick, went to the local library, hooked up this drive and plugged in my mem stick, then highlighted my movies, did drag n drop from "F" to "E", all goods.

lent it to the nephew and niece and they did something and now we can tranfer movies from macbook to the drive (no longer need windows) but when we plug it to the TV it takes forever to load and now nothing comes up at all.....

Is there any chance anyone can tell me how they have done this or is it better to erase the drive.......

i have used utilities to verify, it said need to repair so i clicked that and it repairs it, BUT it still does not load on the TV??!!

Please can someone help me out would b most appreciated }:|

Hi Krazzy,

can you view the movies ok on the pc and/or mac using the Adata without problem..

If so, it suggests the Adata is incompatible with the tv.

Maybe it is too big or the movie files are in the wrong format.

Seems like you went through 2 or 3 steps, maybe more, just to get the files on the Adata. If compression is compounded this can complicate things,

Please advise back on progress.

Good Luck - Keep us posted.

Did the drive work with the TV before your nephew got his hands on it? Did they reformat the drive to be compatible with your Mac? If they did, it's probably no longer compatible with the TV. Check to see what file format is used on the drive & which format is supported by your TV.
