I wanted to post this because I’ve read so many posts and done a lot of research to find out if you can take a WD desktop hard drive over 2TB or any LARGE TB desktop hard drive and use it inside.
Everything I’ve read says NO, you can’t do anything more than 2TB with the box…
Ok I want to set the record straight as I just took a WD GREEN 5TB and use it as the primary hard drive inside the box and it works PERFECTLY giving me 4.5TB.
How did I do this?? Pretty easy actually, I made the MRB as a GPT hard drive, then formatted it, then I created a partition called WDTVPriv and copied all the system files on to that partition, then formatted the rest of the drive and called it WD and WALA it works exactly like the 1TB Blue inside the box.
So if your looking to upgrade your hard drive inside the WD Live TV Hub more than 2 TB, it’s very possible and easy to do!!
