Is WD TV Live compatible with My Book Essential?

Looked at the compatibility  list and it’s not listed - that either means it’s incompatible or it’s not tested.

The WD TV Live is WDBAAP0000NBK-02

The My Book Essential is WDBACW0030HBK

Is it a ‘yes’ or is it a ‘no’?



It’s not tested.

As the WD TV Live now supports 3TB HDDs, there’s no reason to suspect that it won’t work…  is there?


I have the WD My Book Essential 3TR drive and it works great, the only thing I would say is it’s a little slow at start up. I guess it has to scan the entire hard drive before it starts, but hey, it’s 3 TB’s! That’s a lot.
