I recently purchased the 4TB MyBook. My sole purpose for this drive is to store my DVD collection for playback through windows 7 media center on my home theatre pc. Whenever trying to play a DVD file (video_ts/ifo/vob) from the 4TB drive in media center, the drive just freezes up and does not load the movie. If I point WMC to my NAS, over a WiFi connection, the movie plays without a hiccup.
I have updated the USB 3.0 drivers on the Intel NUC. I have installed all of the updates for windows 7 and also updated the firmware on the 4TB driven (I hope, the process is a bit opaque). I have tried this experiment on two home theater pcs, same result.
Has anyone had similar problems with this drive or know of a solution for this problem? I would prefer to find a way to fix this problem rather than resort to returning the drive and trying my luck with another brand. Any help would be greatly appreciated as this issue is becoming quite frustrating. Also before anyone starts in about pirating DVD’s, I own every DVD that I have copied onto my hard drives. I just prefer the convenience of having access to all of my movies through media center rather than searching for the actual disc.
