Insert a USB drive with firmware to recover your WDTV(WD TV LIVE STREAMING MEDIA PLAYER C3H)

Hi Everyone.

Welcome to the thread.

I was updating firmware of my WDTV, suddenly due to power outage WDTV restarted and it OS corrupted.

I have followed many threads and tried many solutions provided but got no output. I have tried to use multiple type of USB storages, Multiple filesystem types (NTFS,FAT,FAT32,exFAT,LINUX) but none worked.

Can anyone please provide me correct path to reset it ? and please do provide correct downloads.


Thankyou

First question to confirm … what’s the model number of your WD TV ?

C3H is not the model number.

is it … WDBHG70000NBK, WDBGXT0000NBK, WDBMBA0000NBK, WDBYMN0000NBK or WDBPUF0000NBK ?

Thank you for response

Please find this photo attached with model details.

That’s a PAL WD TV Live Streaming Media Player

PAL model number WDBGXT0000NBK

all i can suggest i using small capacity flashdrives to load the recovery firmware onto (1GB or 2GB) … and WDTV is only compatible is NTFS, FAT and FAT32 format

another user claimed that Linux Partitioning worked … but i can’t confirm that

Thank you for prompt response to thread.

Please note, i have followed the above solution, I tried it using 2GB Flash Drivs with 8GB as well as 16GB. But WDTV did not load firmware.

And i even tried it with linux partition. But still it doesnt make any change.

What i did?

  1. I formated usb’s in multiple partitions at diffrrnt plateforms as mentioned above.
  2. Than extracted the rollback above mentioned zip file to it.
  3. Switched off WD device.
  4. Put usb into front port of WD.
  5. Started WD.

Found same display as shown in first photo.

Please guide me if i went wrong at any step.

Any response Please.? Any help?
