will the drive connect to a freesat pvr for recoring ptogrammes and pause tv

I have a generic Tablet which runs Android, will this hard drive work if it's been formatted on my PC running Windows 7 ?? I want to put DVD's on it plus music.

Asked by: Charles
Yes this will work fine on Android, but the tablet would need to support the use of external HDD's.

Hi,  I've got a MacBook Air and just wondered whether this is compatible? My laptop is telling me that it has no space on the start up disk so I need to get an external hard drive. Do I need anything else to make this work?

Asked by: Jenni
This drive will work with a Mac after it has been formatted.
