Reply To: Repurposing Drives

Forumite Points: 5,634

My Samsung TV has an option to format a HDD to its liking, it is meant to be able to use drives that are pre formatted FAT32 or ExFAT but it often can’t. Drives formatted by the TV show up just fine on a Windows PC though.

That’s the process that happens when the drive is ‘registered’, it gives you the usual warning about losing any data.

It does say you’ll have to re-format the drive in the PC, for use on the PC.
