    This helped greatly! I was able to use all my storage space available on my 5 TB WD Elements 107C externally powered hard drive. I created two 2 TB partitions and a 561 GB partition using the second method and my LG C7 TV recognized them all! :)
    Also my Xbox and PC recognized all three partitions so I can use all the storage space on my hard drive if I want to do something else with one of the partitions.

    Thanks for the method. I was doubtful whether it will work as all over the internet there is not one article which says more than 2 tb hard discs can be converted to mbr format. Your method really works. I did create bootable usb using Rufus instead of using cd drive though

    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?
