Hi, I’ve had the same WD Live for a couple of years working fine but a couple of weeks ago it started getting weird.
First it started turning off during playing, powering down was one solution but then we found that turning off the auto power saving fixed that problem.
Then at Christmas we attached a new external drive (different brand) and it wouldnt recognize the storage device at all. Consequently we moved the movies back onto the old WD external storage and things were aok again.
Now today, all of a sudden it wont boot up, the LED starts flashing, the Tv says is sees the WD Live but then the TV stays black and the LED light stays solid. We have tried everything, even factory reset.
