[QUOTE=Garybrown02;2731340]That option worked for that user, but I want my Samsung TV to recognise the hard drive too. I’ve got it working, but there are some other folders on there that I didn’t put there. One is called .Spotlight-V100 and the other is called .Trashes and I was wondering if there might be a way of hiding these other folders[/QUOTE]
The spotlight and trash folders were created by mac. The spotlight folder serves as a catalog index to make it quicker to find any files or folders on the drive. The trash folder is like the recycle bin.
Both can be deleted and cause no harm. It just makes searching for files or folders slightly longer on a Mac system.
