So I upgraded to the Live from the WD TV. I use two WD usb drives, one 320gb and one 500gb. Both were used on my WD TV. When I got the Live, I deleted the wdtv folder on each and let the new unit index them etc.
All was going well until yesterday when it decided not to recognise one of the two drives I have plugged in (the 320gb one - elements IIRC). Basically, I moved some files to the drive on my computer, then hooked it up to the Live and turned it on and despite power going to the drive, it did not mount the drive and I could not access anything at all. The led didn’t light up as usual when plugging in a drive. This is even though we were watching something off of it the previous night.
So I have deleted the wdtv folder again, done a soft and hard reset of the Live and reformatted the 320gb drive. Nothing has worked, it just does not recognise it being connected.
The 500gb drive works fine in both usb1 and usb2 (so I know it is not a duff usb port).
Any ideas or is my only option to buy a new drive?
Computer recognises the drive and allows me to copy to it, read from it with no problems at all.
I was running the latest FW and I tried the drive on my old WD and it would not recognise it either. I downgraded the firmware on the Live to see if that fixed it but it made no difference. The drive is in NTFS format and I have also tried chaging usb cables.
Can anyone help or is my only option to just buy another drive? Could the unit itself possibly be faulty?
