Philips DVP5960 problem when playing from external hard drive


Standard Member
when i try to connect up my western digital 2.5 portable hard drive the drive will sound like it is powering up but nothing happens. it worked the first time i connected it but now it doesnt. I thought it may be the dvd player itself so i got a replacement and the same is happening. The hard drive is working with the computer btw. Any help would be greatly appreciated :thumbsup:

you may find it's because the DVD player can't supply enough power to the drive. You could try it with a USB power adaptor if a Y cable came with the drive to give the extra juice required.
