I have a wD TV live and a 1 T WD elements HD. I want to load a lot of video/movie files from my iMac (mid2010,Mountain Lion) on the elements HD .
My WD TV live is connected to TV with HDMI.Than I want to connect the elements HD to WD TV live with the USB cable, and play the video’s via the Media Library.
1st question: Do I need to format the elements HD from NTFS to Mac OSX journaled? If yes, will the thus formatted elements HD be recoqnised by the WD TV live?
Or must I maintain the NTFS format on the elements HD?
2nd question: Before I used a USB stick for loading video’s on the WD TV live. It took/takes forever to finish compiling the Media Library. As a matter of fact it never stops compiling. Will this be the same using the elements HD?
Reading some posts in this forum makes me not very optimistic.
