    Your description was very accurate and helpful.
    But for a 5TB Harddisk I have the same problem as tamer nagy above: 2TB+2TB work fine. 500GB I was not able to allocate (space wasted for the moment).
    I guess there is no workaround. Given a market price of 2 cents per gigabyte we are talking here of 10 USD of unusable harddisk. Not worth investing any energy to resolve this issue. Thx alot.

    thanks for this, regarding method 2 – this will only create 2tb partitions. if you try and go beyond that it will not work unfortunately. just got a 12tb drive, only 3tb is recognised by my lgtv so will have to come up with another plan…

    I was able to partition by 3Tb GPT hard disk into 2 x 1.5TB MBR hard disk using Free MiniTool partition software. After doing that my Samsung TV is detecting it.

    I did the first method for a 2TB seagate to play on my LG and although I can see the disk drive when I open up the disk management through run, I cannot access the hard drive through my computer. It is not showing at all. But I still have to eject it? I'm a total n00b. Please help!

      Have you formatted the drive? What OS you have?
