My thank you in advance for those that help me with this issue. I am also sorry if this is posted somewhere and I just cant find it…I tried writing my search in several different ways but did not see this issue spelled out.
I have a Western Digital Live Hub and a Western Digital Live Player on the same network. I can open my laptop (which is the master browser) and see both devices and see the files with no problem there. I have no direct issues with the devices by themselves as they work perfectly (at least the small quirks I can get around). My issue is with the Western Digitial Live Player itself. It connects to the network via wireless and can see the Live Hub internal drive and all the videos I put there no problem. What it does not see is the two external drives which are connected into the USB ports on the USB Live Hub.
I will add that initially out of the box the Live Player did not see the drives, when I did a few firmware updates (given the device was new from the store) it finally did see them and I was a happy camper. Then another update came out and I restarted and all of a sudden they are no longer there.
My Troubleshooting: I have restarted all devices on the network, insured the drives were open to sharing within the system settings but beyond this I cant imagine I changed anything given they were working fine before I made the last firmware update.
My hope is this is just another little quirk that I have to do some trick to make it work…but figured I would ask you smart folks
