    Hi guys,

    I want to connect a hard drive that I have all my movies on to my WDHDTV, It has it's own power supply but only has a female USB connection meaning that I would need a male to male USB to connect them. Both the WDHDTV and the hard drive would be plugged in to mains power and connected by a USB lead, would this fry both units?

    Thanks for any advice

    does it look like a cable with the following ends will work for your drive?

    Uhm, all external drives I've seen has a female USB connection in them(save for USB Flash drives, but they're so lightweight anyway). So nothing wrong there. Just plug in power to the hard drive first, then the cable, and you should be ready to go.
