Connecting USB blu-ray drive to TV

Question

Hi all,

I'm new here as I just got my LG webos tv and a USB blu-ray drive also LG. Sorry if this is the wrong part of forum.

The TV is a http://www.lg.com/uk/tvs/lg-42LF652V with WebOS 2.0 and the blu-ray is http://www.lg.com/us/burners-drives/lg-BP50NB40-external-blu-ray-dvd-drive

Since the USB blu-ray drive has a "tv mode" and both it and the TV are LG I had high hopes that they will work together and I will be able to see disks by connecting it directly to the TV.

If I connect them as such it seems I can only see the contents of the disks in smart-share as any other USB drive (regardless if I enter tv-mode) but UNLESS is an original (protected?) disk in which case the drive appears empty (video disks as one made for me by a contracted photographer work as such). I only tested it with DVDs as I don't have any blu-ray yet. If I enter "tv mode" on the usb unit the TV shows an usb connection error message yet it still works from smart-share as I sayed...not at home now to give you the exact message but it sayed to remove and try reconnect it.

Can you please tell me if there is any solution to see original disks in such setup. Anything to get over that connection error? Or maybe an webos media player app capable to see usb connected optical drives?...yet I can't find any myself.

Thanks,

Luke
