I just bought a WD LIVE TV and was planning to use it with a External Disk I am currently using (hard drive in a USB SATA enclosure). This enclosure works fine on Windows XP and a MacBook Pro, not problems at all.
Today I installed the WD LIVE TV, upgraded to the latest firmware and when tried to connect the external hard drive (enclosure) it is not detected, the USB light on the WD TV does not even light up. I connected a USB flash drive and it was detected and I was able to play a video in there.
I know that this drives are not in the “certified” list, but as they work fine with Windows XP and Snow Leopard I just want to exhaust all options before going out and buying a new hard drive (already have 2 x 500Gb in queue to be used).
I was expecting using one of these drives, so is there any troubleshooting I can do to understand why the external drives are not detected?
