Everything worked fine up to just a week ago. Now the WDTVLIVE does not see my hd which is connect to the usb port. It no longer shows ‘Local Drives’ option at all. What am I doing wrong. I don’t think I changed any settings, but if you think it is a settings problem, please do reply.
Make a factory reset to the WDTV and format the drive.
I had a similar problem with my Live+ after upgrading the firmware. It did’t see my USB drive and I could not map it from my PC. Here’s what I did:
Attach the USB drive to your computer
Delete the following directories: found.000 and .wd_tv (you might want to just move them to another drive in case they are needed. I don’t know if you need to delete both or just one or if you even have both.
Connect the drive back to your WDLive and restart
After doing this the Live+ could see the drive and I was able to map it to my PC.
Hope this helps. It’s a lot less work than formatting the drive and reloading everything.
