I recently downgraded the firmware of my WD TV Live Media player. The firmware 1.01.24 doesn’t work with iso-files verry well so I decided to downgrade the firmware to 1.01.17.
Follow the next steps:
- download the old firmware: http://www.wdc.com/global/webtracking/index.asp?id=1092&url=http://download.wdc.com/wdtv/wdtvlive_1.01.17.zip
1.Use USB FLASH KEY from 64mb upto 2GB. I recommend upto 2GB but you could also use bigger ones but they using different adressing model
this could be issue for some models.
2.Format the USB FLASH key to FAT16 or FAT32 filesystem don’t be lazzy and DON’T use NFTS for this case 1)
use USB FORMATER 2)or any others formatting tools.
3.Go to WDTV menu System→About there is version notice it you will need this number later.
4.Unpack firmware package to USB FLASH KEY to root directory there have to be 2 files WDTV.BIN and WDTV.VER.
