There is no power button on the back where the instructions say it is supposed to be. So how do I turn it on? I have model #GE24NU40 manufactured August 2017.
Asked by: Ctj59
The power switch is optional and it supports for European models only. If you want to connect this to a computer, just plug the power connector at the back of the unit and the other end to a power outlet and the usb connector at the back of the unit. ^AC

How to activate the advertised "TV Connectivity" on the GE24 external desktop drives? The technique described for the notebook series drives (open tray, hold EJECT button until LED stays on) has no effect. Smart TV says "unsupported device".

Asked by: trinaduty
I had the same question and asked someone about it. She told me to get the VLC Media Player. It looks like an orange construction cone with white horizontal stripes on it. It downloaded and installed easily. I just tried it out tonight and it played the movie nicely. Try it and see.
