Hello all, I have a new NU8000 and am not getting on very well with recording to USB HDD. I've read plenty of forum postings about it both on samsung.com and elsewhere but here's my brief story. I had a USB powered 500Gb seagate HDD which worked but not consistently. It would sometimes not record when the TV was in standby. So, following forum threads I got an external powered 1Tb USB drive. When I plugged it in, 6 USB drives appeared! USB HDD, USB HDD(1)...up to USB HDD (5). The "real" one is USB HDD(3) and if the TV is on, I can record to it. However with the TV in standby, nothing records, ever. Both of these drives are USB2. If I unplug and replug the 1Tb, the 6 drives appear again, so obviously this drive has some compatibility problem. I had formatted it NTFS on my PC just prior to using - the manual does say NTFS is supported. So the question is, what make/model of USB HDD will actually record when I set something on series link properly when in standby? Perhaps there is a "more reliable" USB port? Perhaps FAT32 is more reliable? - I know this is clutching at straws. many thanks in advance for anyone who has a drive plugged in that actually works 100% and can recommend.
