It appears I am having the same problem that is referenced in this post here
I have not been able to find a solution and since the previous post is read only I thought I would ask again.
My dvd rips will not play on my new WD 3TB drive. The drive plays all other file types just fine. Also, I can move the dvd rips back to my internal drive as well as to other external drives (a WD 500GB among them) and they play with no problem. I have tried using Windows Media Center, Windows Media Player and Media Player Classic. I’ve updated the driver and firmware. I’ve tried plugging it into a different USB port and also tried it with a different computer. I have Windows 7 though the second computer I tried it with has XP. I’ve also tried re-ripping the dvds and used 3 different programs but again I have the same problem.
So with all this I’m fairly confident it’s something specific to this drive and hoping somone might have a solution or suggestion? Thanks in advance.
