External USB DVD Drive not being detected / working by WD TV Live Hub

[Mod: Moved from the issues section]

Which firmware were you using?


What exactly happened?

I recently purchased external USB DVD Writer

What you were doing?

I have some movies in DVD that I want to watch using Live Hub. The power in the DVD Comes however it is not being detected by the firmware.

What hardware and media were you using?

I’m trying to view Normal DVD (4480 MB) having MP4 Files using external usb dvd writer (which also reads ;))

Does it happen every time?


Does it happen with previous firmware?


Does power cycling the unit solve it?


Does resetting to factory defaults solve it?


Have you tried this on other devices?

Yes that external USB Writer is working under Windows XP, Windows 7 and even under the Linux !!!

USB DVDs aren’t supported.
