Sorry if this is a repeat post. I have not seen an issue exactly like this one:
My Mac with OSX 10.6.5 can see my WD Live and vice versa. I can access all drives and files on the Mac from the WD Live. Playing MP4 files from my Mac to the WD Live is fine. But when I try to play larger files like Video TS or Mkv files it stutters or will not play at all. If I put a Mkv files directly onto the WD Live through a USB thumb drive it plays just fine.
I’m assuming this is a traffic or speed issue of the data. I am connected through an ethernet cable at the WD Live box going into an Apple Airport Extreme (as the router: not wireless), then directly into the computer. In the OS system preferences, file sharing is using SMB.
Any help or direction would be appreciated.
