I’m running firmware 1.05.18.
I had only had the WD TV Live SMP half an hour and I was having problems with it… :cry:
I attached a 1.5Tb Elements drive (NTFS) with 320Gb of media on it and the WD TV Live found it fine and built a media library.
I proceeded to play a .mkv file and the file froze halfway through (I had problems playing this file on another media player which is why I decided to buy the WD TV Live).
I tried to “go back”, “stop” etc but the player had frozen. My only option was to turn the WD TV Live off.
When I switched the WD TV Live back on it would not recognise the 1.5Tb Elements drive.
Using my PC (Windows XP) I then moved all the data onto another drive and reformatted the 1.5Tb Elements drive using the procedure here.
As advised here.
Once the drive had reformatted I re-attached it to the WD TV Live and the drive was recognised.
Great I thought!
I ejected the drive as recommended before removing it.
I then added all 320Gb data back onto the 1.5Tb Elements drive and re-attached it to the WD TV Live… but now it doesn’t see the drive again!!! :angry:
I re-attached the 1.5Tb Elements drive back to the PC and deleted the WD TV Live folder but the drive was still not recognised when re-attched to the WD TV Live.
I have a 1Tb WD Elements drive which is found fine by the WD TV Live.
PS. BTW, PLEASE WD - build in an “eject all hard drive routine” into your “power off” sequence. It’s hard to remember to eject and external hard drive every time you switch off the device!
