I just bought this new 3TB WD Element p/n WDBAAU0030HBK.
I copied some avi, mkv to it , and it is not recognized with both WD Media devices that I have.
device1 is WD TV Live Streaming Media Player running latest firmware 1.13.18
device 2 is WD TV Live HD Media player also running latest firmware 1.06.15_V.
I already tried reformat the drive NTFS as a whole drive as well as split it to two 1.5TB drives.
Also tried put .AVI at the root folder.
Also tried copy .WD_TV folder from my 2TB drive as well.
Tried using the front USB port.
Tried plug in directly to wall.
Measured Voltage @12.35 w no load, adapter is 12V - 1.5A.
Tried reset the unit to Factory Default
