    I have a Sony BDP S 373 player which appears to have one major set-back for me: it won't recognise any hard drive connected to it via USB. I've tried a dedicated USB HDD (Western Digital Freeagent) and I've tried a HDD that is housed in a USB enclosure but the player says "USB device not recognised".

    This is a pain to me because I make a lot of Blu ray films myself and it is so much easier for me to keep them on such a drive to watch. The LG blu ray player I had did not have this problem - is there a way to get the Sony to recognise the drives?

    To recognise your drive it needs to be formatted as fat32.

    The 373 is the same as the 370 with a different remote
