WD 4tb external hard drive compatible

I have recently purchased a WD 4tb external hard drive in order to save about 400 movies (with more to come). I'm wanting to use this as my personal movie library. I'm also wanting to purchase a smart TV but, all of the research that i've done is telling me that there are no smart tv's on the market that will support a hard drive that large........is this true? Any advice or wisdom would be greatly appreciated.

Re: WD 4tb external hard drive compatible

Hello JAYARESS1, 

 

 

Thank you for reaching out about wanting to attach a WD 4 TB hard drive to a Smart TV. 

 

 

Please know most TV's are only able to handle a 2 TB HD as that's all the operating system can support. Even connecting a 2 TB HD would require that you format the drive so the TV can read the files, and this may result in you losing your movies if they're not backed up.

 

 

Respectfully,
