    OK, I am now concerned that I am over my head but here we go:
    I want to be able to view my home movie from my external hard drive to my GTV Sony G1 via usb. GTV does not seem to recognize that the hard drive is even connected. I just purchased GTV Box App, and it looks like it supports my file types, but still does not recognize the connected Hard Drive. Help!

    If the HD is powered only by usb you may need a "Y" usb cable and connect it into the 2 ports the sony device has. The voltage in a single usb port of the sony is not enought to make your hd works.
