40UF770V-ZB external HDD problem or user problem?

Question

Hello everybody,

 

I hope somebody has already crossed the same problem and can get me out of this.

When I connect a 1TB HDD on any of my 3 USB slots, it will create a LG Smart TV file on it. So far so good.

When I try to record, it only shows 196MB available and therefore refuses the recording due to unsufficient space, as at least 40GB are required.

 

Any idea what I am doing wrong, or what I could try? My HDD is a 1TB Toshiba USB 3.0 disk.

 

Many thanks in advance

The answer was pretty simple: the TV does not supply enough power through the USB slots to support recent performing hhd's. After I connected a hdd with external power supply the problem was gone.
