I have bought a LaCie Rikiki USB 3.0 500GB drive and I’m having suttering with high bit rate movies when drive is connected after turning on WD TV LIVE (meaning cold start up).
I’m using Samsung Oceanic demo, and when I plug the drive before turning on the WD TV Live (that is, WD TV and USB drive turn on at the same time), it plays OK. But if I plug the drive when the WD is already on, it plays with interruptions. Slow bit rate movies play OK, suggesting that USB speed is slower in that case.
Is there any reason for that? May it be a problem of drive compatibility?
By the way, it happens with different firmware versions and even with two different WD TV models (I have the original WD TV Live and a hardware version 2, the one that shuts down when turning off).
