Because I can not put cover hard drives?

#1

Good evening, I connected via a USB hub 5 hard drives to digital wester
and I wanted to know how do I add to each hard drive its cover?

I plugged in the root folder of a hard disk image called folder
but no icon and always empty

is there a way to include the cover?

#2

It can only be done via “Themes”

eg.   http://community.wd.com/t5/WD-TV-Live-Streaming/local-storage-icon-or-photo/m-p/830734#M34394

I can not do this thing on the theme I’m using now?

this one:

that theme does not have the XML code for Drive Icons …

but is easy enough to add the code

post some the names/lables of your HDD’s so i can provide a sample and explanation

Names must be exact  (Case and Space sensitive)

#5

since I do not mean you could not again be kind and you add this item to put the covers on that theme?
without changing anything on the subject because i am comfortable with this theme :slight_smile:

#6

edit: that theme is gonna take some time to edit … unfortunately probably won’t be able to do it today

got other problems of my own to sort out

#7

do not worry I understand your busy schedule :wink:
just do not forget me though :stuck_out_tongue: hehe

Joey thanks for the support  ^ _ ^

greetings from Italy

#8

JoeySmyth anything yet?

#9

no sorry, i got it  “Half Done” (ran into a couple of problems, which can be sorted) and i got distracted  

(purchased a Raspberry Pi 2 the other day, tinkering with it… is taking up all my time  :smiley:

will *try* to finish the drive icons for wdtv tomorrow (but can’t promise) … it will take a couple of hours to do, and also have to explain how it works.

(it’s basically using “Linksheets” but as “Icons” … which you remove the file extension, place inside the root of the theme … then zip the theme (at root level, with no compression) … and you’re done)

#10

do not forget me though  :stuck_out_tongue:
we account
then I try to see if there is progress next week then.

and then may I ask where you got those icons that you posted in the image of the second post?

anyway thank you Joe for the support you are truly a great person
you have my respect

good weekend then :wink:

#11

ok here it is …  the only view that will not display them is “Gallery View”

This is due to the “Design” and techinical limitation of what’s possible.

It’s only possible to have “One” focused drive icon (as seen in the picture at the top of this thread)

Stearms theme does not have this (and there is really no place to put it)

http://www.mediafire.com/download/6966q93j69b5c9s/Drive_Icon_stearm_js.zip

that’s all i can do unfortunately.  take it or leave it.

anyways back to other things

How to use it:

Step 1: get a image eg. google images … resize it to 200x300, name it Exactly the Same as how your hard drives appear as “text” eg.  if the WDTV says WD MyPassport  then save the image as WD MyPassport.png

Step 2: remove the file extension eg.  WD MyPassport.png  >   WD MyPassport

Step 3: unzip the Theme and place the icon (WD MyPassport) into the root of the theme (you will notice i’ve placed to icons already USB1  USB2

Step 4: rezip the theme at root level using NO compression … then upload

#12

I put a picture in the root folder of the hard disk called the same name but nothing turned off and on the western digital several times but nothing.
with no display mode shows me the covers.

can you give me a picture that you think works 100% so to try.
obviously then later change the title of my hard drive and rename it as the picture you gave me.

no because I tried it with various pictures 200x300 in different formats but nothing

you’re not listening …

#14

not that you do not listen and I understood each other.

However I used the two icons that you put in the root of the issue and work
But I have a basic question
why if I rename the two files USB1 and USB2 in another name after not display covers in western digital?

then I do not understand that you used to extend the two images I shows no extension in the file properties.

For example I want to set this image
http://i.imgur.com/L6n3UX8.png
I renamed the image equal to the hard drive but nothing.

something FUNDAMENTAL indeed what I need even more, however, and Joey went wrong dear I’ll show (perhaps changing something and if this combined)
I can not see most of the movie posters in a choir

and can fix this?

#15

oops … *Fixed*

Can’t explain it any simpler …

Step 1: get a image eg. google images … resize it to 200x300, name it Exactly the Same as how your hard drives appear as “text”

EXAMPLE:    if the WDTV says KINGSTON  then save the image as KINGSTON.png

Step 2: remove the file extension eg.  KINGSTON.png   >  KINGSTON   **
**

Step 3: unzip the Theme and place the icon (eg. KINGSTON ) into the root of the theme (you will notice i’ve placed to icons already USB1  USB2   (see pic below)

Step 4: rezip the theme at root level using NO compression … then upload it to you WDTV

#16

now I understand I have to enter the covers in the root of the issue and then upload it again.
and that I had not sincerely,
But I’m stuck in step 4, where you say you do not compress the folder
how do I?
use Winrar

but in addition to entering the covers in the root of the theme I have to save them even in the root folder of the hard disk itself right?

now in the root of the issue so I
I included these four covers and now I have to reload the theme

#17

here is how you re-zip a theme.

is use 7-zip        http://www.7-zip.org/

#18

you really are strong friend I succeeded
you are a GREAT :smileyvery-happy:

Joey wanted to ask you one last thing, since I follow many episodes of TV series I was wondering if there was a way that I reported the incident seen so immediately understand where I left off.
because as I have no time to see me the whole series at once I see it a little at a time
But every time I want to continue the series I have to re-check all the episodes to figure out where I left off last time.
would be very nice if somehow close to the icon of the episode was written watched.
is it possible?

#19

yes it’s possible … but i don’t have time to do it

#20

ok do not worry.
appearance :wink:

when you make the change gently flaw of this version, where I put the covers my :slight_smile:

http://www.mediafire.com/download/zce1h0llh8f2se5/Drive_Icon_stearm_js.zip

tnks

it would be convenient if the word would be seen inside the folder where there are video files and no outside where there are posters with the covers
because then the list of films we would have seen a lot of movies with the word and it would be bad.

Would you be so kind as you have been up to now if the writing was watched in Italian? :slight_smile:

write exactly this:  Guardato

if there is not the space makes it’s OK : Visto

Ciao  :smiley:
