I got back home and saw that the wdtv live is updated. It’s possibly that one of my family members updated it. My issue is this, when I turned it on, the update seemed to have messed up my files on USB2. Everything on USB1 is fine though. I noticed that the WDTV was endlessly reading for more than 30 minutes. I knew there was something wrong.
I was browsing the drive on USB2, and noticed, that some of JPG files are not loading. I was wondering what caused this. I moved the drive to the PC and noticed that the JPG files are now converted into empty protected folders. As I browsed the drive, it seemed like some of the MP3 and WMA files are also converted to. The longer the drive is hooked on the WDTV, the more files are affected.
I was able to save most of the files since I don’t turn on the WDTV Live on long periods of time.
Please fix this issue as soon as possible and please don’t make the user be forced to use the update. Even though it was an option, it shows up as the default selection when the update is available. I used the WDTV Live to have people at home to have easy access to our home media. But with the recent update, were afraid to use it and possibly loose a lot of our family pictures and home video.
