I’m at my wits end and will likely just throw the media player in the garbage.
I thought I finally found the answer with this post…
“Long story short, I used the WD quick formatter tool (Google it) to format the 6TB drive with Windows XP settings (not Vista & above), which formatted the drive as MBR 6TB. My WD TV Live recognised it but didn’t show the drive until I copied video files to it. Now working as expected. I tried everything else, this is the only solution that worked for me.”
I downloaded the quick formatter, reformatted it to be XP Compatible, I confirmed using my Disk Management tool in windows that it’s showing MBR partition style and one 6TB volume. Ecstatically I ran to my media player and plugged it in. It’s still not $#%&@# showing the drive. I’m out of ideas and options.
Hopefully the above works for you. Note: the WD Quick Formatter tool won’t give you the option window to choose “XP Compatible” if you’re using Win 10 like me. You have to first check properties of the actual formatter .exe file and have it run in Win 7 compatibility mode.
