Apple TV 3.0.2., ATV flash 4.2.1
USB Drive Imation Apollo 1TB. ATV only sees it if it is formated as HFS which isn't cool because I am a W7 user and Macdrive software is crap AND costs $50.
I tried formating to FAT32 with the suggested tool, ran SmartInstaller 100 times, reboted, the hole enchillada.
There is nothing else to do, but conclude (at least for this drive) that ATV only takes HFS formated drive. Right?
