ok, so I had the original (non-networked) version of the western digital player. Nice & simple, can’t remember anything ever going wrong with it (apart from the power supply going after a few years - which you’d say was fair enough!).
I bought the new one ( WD TV Live Media Player ) around a month ago and I have to say that I’ve only had issues with it since.
It keeps coming up telling me that there’s no storage present (when I have a USB stick in both slots - the devices were not showing up under disk mgr either). Drops my connections (to networked drives) and then asks me to re-enter the passwords for local shares (I was sharing from my laptop - Windows7 64-bit). It then proceeds to tell me that I’ve entered the wrong username or password (I haven’t!).
Is this just an issue with the new firmware update (1.15.10) or can I look forward to these issues for the duration of this products use? I’m really not impressed at all so far and am seriously reconsidering any further purchases of anything WD (they were the only external drives that I’d ever buy)
Am I better off just formatting this & putting the non-official firmware on?
