I have a 1TB Western Digital USB external hard drive, which I originally wanted to use solely with my Panasonic Viera TV for recording missed programs, etc. This setup was fully functional, but I now want to do more with the hard drive - like store backups of my files which are on my laptop (Windows 7)
According to this link, the TV runs a version of FreeBSD and uses the UFS2 file system, which isn't supported by Windows. Plugging the hard drive into the laptop after being formatted by the TV requires it be formatted back to FAT.
I tried partitioning the hard drive using the laptop, hoping that the two partitions would show up as two separate devices on the TV but this did not work. How can I get the hard drive to be shared and used for both devices?
