My brand-new WD Live box won’t update its firmware even from a USB drive. I’ve noted that it won’t update from tne network as per this note about firmware and NFS, so I tried to update from a USB drive.
I followed the instructions in the instruction web page for 1.10.x, but that does not work. I don’t have an icon that checks for the settings, and when I select “check firmware update” the SMP does not find the USB drive files. Instead, it looks online.
Please note that my current version is 1.01.43 – at least minor releases old – and when I check for updats, I get an offer to update to 1.03.07i via the oinline service. I’m doing all this via my web browser GUI.
My current guess is that someone has sold me a box that’s too old to be updated. Any ideas?
