WD not seeing 3TB drive

Question, my friend had a drive with information on it, but did not it but did not it any more so I formated the 3TB drive in windows 8, after the format, I but some home movies in a MP4 format, only issue is that the WD Live box will not see the drive

I did a reset on the WD Live box and still no luck, any idea as to why this happens, the 3TB drive is only a few months old

What format did you format it too ?

it’s formated NTFS

Well it should work then …

I have a 3TB WD My Book and a 3TB WD Elements … and Both work fine with the WDTV Media Player 2014  Firmware: 1.02.17

the Firmware on the WD Live is 2.02. somthing which was the last one they had  

you’re in the Wrong Forum then …

That’s the 2011 WDTV Live Streaming … you should have posted in this forum
