I have a Samsung 1080p9 Dvd Player
, i am looking into buying a External harddrive and wanted to be sure that i can use a Usb Powered Hard drive. I can't seem to find any info on the power output on the usb connector. I have read other threads that say External harddrives do work but they were 3.5" self powered Harddrives. I Would Like to maybe Piece together my own Portable Harddrive so I know What The Dive/Specs Are im getting, So i guess the question is has anyone here Been able to use a usb powered (no Y connector as there is only 1 usb port
) External Harddrive on the samsung 1080p9 Dvd Player Successfully, and What Brand/Size/Usb1.1/2/3(I say 3 as the connector can be backwards compatible
). Any Help Would Be Appreciated.
Well i have contacted samsung and asked the Question#1
"Can i use a usb powered harddrive on the samsung 1080p9" Question#2
"What is the power output on the usb Port"Answer#1
"No You cannot use a usb powered harddrive on the samsung 1080p9" Anaswer#2
"There is no power output at all Through the usb port".
Dissapointed That they could not tell me the exact power output from the usb port as there has to be some for usb flash drives to work. So i guess they are just to lazy to look up that information for us.
And so the question still remains. If anyone has tried a usb powered harddrive on the samsung 1080p9 please let us know.
