I have a Sony TV with USB so I can record programs, will this hard drive work with this and also can I use it on my laptop and tablet. I understand not at the same time but if I record a program on drive can I the view it on laptop or tablet.

Asked by: Dave
Hard drives will store anything as long as the devices in use support them. You would need to check this with Sony direct.
