WD stopped working

All of a sudden my media player has stopped working, I can navigate to my drive but when I select a movie I get the loading circle graphic and it just seems to hang there. Any thoughts?

These are also movies I have watched in the past. 

I’musing a different drive now, is that what might be happening?

It sounds like you played an .mkv movie with compressed headers.

Check the MediaInfo of your movies and look for any made with mkvmerge 4.x.x

Until the firmware is stably updated, you’ll have to “repair” any compressed header movies yourself, after resetting your WDTV.  Then You’ll be back in business.

Thanks that worked!

How do I  “repair” any compressed header movies?

Remux with MKVmerge version 4.0 or below or with Version 4.1 or above with compression turned off on video and audio.
