Hello, I am just about the purchase a 4TB hard drive and a media player in order to back up my DVD collection and play the content out via a media player into my HD TV. I have been recommended the following, which I would be grateful for some feedback:

Before I take the plunge if someone in “the know” could guide me as to whether the above kit is good or not I should be very grateful. If you also have any other recommendations to offer, please feel free, as I want to get this purchase right first time.

Kind Regards,

Tim Burchell

It seems this media player only supports 2tb + 1tb hard drives in total.I have a WD TV LIVE media player which supports 2 x 2tb hard drives i can recommend this media player its plays everything i throw at it and the warranty is excellent

Hi Shezzer, thanks very much for your advice!!!

I am thinking of using the file format ISO, does this drive support this?

I've had a look on Amazon, is this link the same product?

Many thanks,

Tim.

Hi Tim Yes this is the same product. In answer to your question it does play iso files but i think its a bit hit and miss wether they play depending on software used to make the image . Also the file sizes will be very large especially if you are backing up blu-ray discs
