Sorry if the level of dumbness in the following offends…
A while back I bought a WD My Book Live Personal Cloud Storage 2 TB Network Attached Storage device for attaching to my home network thinking that it would (a) serve as an additional back up device and (b) a media server for mp3 and dvd.
As a backup device it’s fine, and as a media server to my iPad it’s fine. However I cannot get it to talk in any sensible way to my LG BP620 (Smart) Blu Ray Player which is in a wired connection in the home network. It takes an age (start process, leave room, go to Waitrose, have lunch) to produce but a subset of the mp3 catalogue, and just will not show the DVD folders.
What should I be researching to try and work out what is going on, or should I simply give it up as a bad job and hunt down a more compatble Smart device? Is there something in the network - perhaps the router settings - that I should be looking at?
Thanks for any primers.
