Samsung TV (Q80 series) messed up my USB disk - after disconnecting disk from TV it is no longer readable by PC and also TV sees no files on this drive. Trying repair permissions to the drive failed. Disk appears in PC as inaccessible.
PC shows alert: ""Drive is not accessible. Access is denied". I lost many precious family movies!
Solved! Go to Solution.
I've finally found a solution. I contacted Samsung Support. They recommended formatting the drive I use with the Samsung TV as exFAT. Used default allocation unit size. The drive now works flawlessly and I can connect and reconnect to the TV without issues. Hope this helps.
Believe me I've searched a lot of different topics related to my problem. Do you have any valid suggestion, please share. If I could find solution elsewhere I wouldn't ask for help here.
When you cannot access disk in Windows it means you cannot scan this disk with any recovery software unless you initiate this disk, which means formatting. And this is secondary to the main question here: why is disk unreadable by computer Mac or PC after disconnecting from Samsung TV? Does every disk get destroyed, or just specific ones, or it happens randomly?
