After removing a working 2 year old Maxtor MyTouch4 1TB external drive from my Windows PC (NTFS formatted), plugged it in to 622. Its ready light comes on., but no recognition message appears on the TV. When I access Menu 4: Multimedia, under "External USB Devices" it displays "No Device Attached". Did a Power Off/On reboot but no change.
Dish tech support says the drive has to be in its "out of the box" state, i.e., has not been formatted for an operating system's use (FAT/NTFS, Linux, et. al.).
When asked "Is there a way to get the 622 to format it", answer was "no".
Aside from buying a new external drive, does anyone know of a way to get this drive to work?
