I have a 500GB WD hard drive connected to my router. I have been transferring files to & from this & between my Live HUB & my laptop for over a year. Aside from an occasional restart if the drive dissapears I’ve had no problems…
About a week ago 2 things happened. First, I installed Windows 8 on my lap top & second, I updated the Firmware to the latest version on my Live HUB.
Since then I cannot access the hard drive in the same way I could before across my network & it is not visible at all on the HUB. My suspicion is that this problem is Windows 8 related. That said, I connected the hard drive directly to the HUB & it showed no media present (or words to that effect) on the TV screen. I checked I hadn’t accidentally deleted everything by connecting the drive straight in to my lap top. Tried a couple of system restarts on the HUB & on my router, but no change…
So, I’m now thinking there may be a problem with the last WD Firmware upgrade.
I have a fairly limited technical knowledge, so either way any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
