Hello Everyone, I hope someone could help me out here.
I have a WDTV Live and a WD 1TB HD. Both were given to me as christmas gifts last year. I never had internet going into the unit before, I actually did one firmware upgrade via USB one I first got the unit. Yesterday I finally managed to get wired internet to my entertainment center to feed a pc, a ps3 and the WDTV. Wow I was so happy for about 5 minutes…until I decided to update to the newest firmware 1.02.21 via internet connection…big mistake.
After the update the wdtv does not recognize the HD… this is what I had done so far.
I plugged HD into a PC, HD seems to be working fine.
I pluged in a flashdrive into the WDTV and it recognizes the flashdrive perfectly.
I deleted the wdtv folder from the HD and reconnected it hoping the WDTV would re-create the folder but nothing .
I used the WDTV software and did a return to factory settings but nothing
I also used the little reset button on WDTV but that does not work either.
I noticed that when I reset to “factory” using both methods mentioned the firmware is still 1.02.21. Is there a way to truly restore to pure factory. Then update (using usb) then hope it will recognize HD.
BTW the HD was connected to the WDTV when I did the update and it restarted itself. Power never went out nor did I disconnect anything while update was being made. That harddrive is almost full with HD movies I would have to have to format it. PLEASE HELP!!!
