2.0 out of 5 stars Not compatible with Samsung TV + Blu-ray, 21 Dec 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Samsung 3TB D3 Station External Desktop Hard Drive - Black (Personal Computers)
This was bought to be used for viewing Videos etc. via the USB connector of a Samsung (2013 model) plasma TV.
Despite being the same brand it is not recognised and does not work. The same happens when you connect it to a, new, Samsung Blu-ray player.

I have a Western Digital hard disk (2TB) that works OK with the TV, despite being a different brand.

The Samsung drive is actually made by Seagate and I assume that Samsung just puts a plastic box on it and some software and has no control or cares if it is compatible with the rest of its products.

It works fine with my PC and comes formatted in NTFS.

EDIT: Note that it comes with a non standard USB connection, to the Hard disk, so if you lose the included wire you will have trouble replacing it.
