Latest status is that the hard drive as stated in the updated Subject title is non-existent. I’ve tried all possible physical solutions including removing the hard drive. When removing the power-button-cable to eliminate the switchoff before menu issue I was very careful, using tweezers to remove the cable, so I doubt the error came through there. It all started after the device crashed while transferring media files from the PC to the Internal Storage. Something went wrong there and the Internal Storage just won’t appear.
Old: Hello, I have been fiddling with the WDTV Live Hub device for the past few hours as it has been giving me a problem with booting. It simply won’t boot. I can only use the remote or pulling out the AC plug then putting it back in to load it up, then it loads the WDTV logo, flashes the device’s front led logo then suddenly switches off without giving anything else, and it just won’t boot.
This issue started to occur after I was loading media files onto it through the ethernet port from the PC.
What should I do?
2nd Update / Edit: The device successfully loads to the menu now, however the hard drive is absent. It does not appear in any form, through setup and ethernet connection to the PC there is no hard drive. Was the cable connected to the motherboard on the front of the hard drive (infront of where the grey holding is) the power for the hard drive or was that the power button cable and the hard drive doesn’t appear for other reasons. I cannot see any other way for the power button to be connected to the motherboard, I assumed that small looking power cable was what was connected to the power button. Have I assumed wrong?
P.S. I just updated to the latest firmware.
