I have been using two different external hard drives to watch blu rays through an LG bluray player. One is a 1tb while the other is 3tb. Since my bluray player can only view 2tb worth of data, I have partitioned my 3tb drive into 1.99tb and 786gb. I also organize my movies into folders based a genre (drama/action/horror/ect).

Anyways, the 3tb drive worked flawlessly for about 6 months when all of a sudden, after adding 2 new movies into drama, the drama folder appeared "empty" on the bluray player, but showed the files on my computer. All the other folders were fine, and I could even split the drama folder into two different folders and I could view everything. Thinking it may be a bug in my bluray player, I updated the firmware. This resulted in the whole 3tb drive showing up as "empty" on the bluray player. Being very frustrated at this point, I reformatted the external drive and tried again on the bluray player. This time the bluray player showed the icon in the upper right corner that a USB just connected, but I cannot open the drive at all. I cant even open it to see "empty" anymore.

My 1tb external drive still works perfectly on the same bluray player and has done so for years. I have reformatted/defragged/optimized/repaired disk you name it I have done to the 3tb drive. Please, if anyone knows of a solution or something else I could try I would very much appreciate it.
