Replacing hard drive

My hard drive failed! Luckily I had the files backed up. After I format, can I just copy the files to the new drive and plug into the apple tv or do I need to set up wh the apple tv/ATV flash first?


Was your original drive setup for primary (iTunes) storage?

My drive was set up as the secondary drive.


Ok, nothing special you need to do for secondary storage. Just transfer whatever files you want to the drive, and connect it to the AppleTV.
