My My Book Essential 1TB drive has weird detection problem.
I’ve connect it to TV LG42LW4500
And it works, but the 1st time.
* turn off the TV, then turn on TV
* disconnect and reconnect the drive via USB connection
* turn it off via power button
In all those case drive no longer can be recognised by TV
The only way to be recognised by TV is to disconnect ac charger from surge protector,
then to wait 15sec and put back the ac charger back to the protector.
So this mean if i want to use it, i need to disconnect any time the ac charger for 15 seconds from surge protector,
else the drive will be not recognised… Which is very weird…
I’ve tried 2 different surge protectors and problem persist.
What cause this issue and how to fix it?
I’ve noted that that my firmware is initial release 1.003,
is it firmware problem? Can it be fixed with drive firmware update?
but i’m unable to update my firmware due some unknown issue[think cause by WD itself] as described here:
What i should do and how to solve it?
