does it have a cord that i can hook it to the tv.

Asked by: moscato68
I apologize, but no; this drive requires a computer with a Pentium IV 2.4 GHz or higher processor for basic operations, along with an associated hard drive with at least 20 GB of free storage space. The drive would not have these specifics available when connected directly to a television.

I can't find where to update firmware.

My computer says that it is not compatible. So I thought if I updated the firmware it would solve the problem. I am using Windows XP
Asked by: Kim
Check your version of Windows XP. This drive requires a minimum of Windows XP with the Service Pack 2. It also requires Direct X 9.0 or higher. Also required is a minimum of a Pentium 4 2.4 GHz processor, a USB 2.0 port, 20 GB of hard drive space, and 64 MB of video memory. You may also wish to uninstall the driver, and reinstall it from the Operating System drivers.
