Took me a couple of days to understand what was causing this issue. Basically, things are like that:
-WDTV Live, f/w 1.07.15 connected to network through wi-fi and using static IP
-WD My Book Live 2TB f/w 2.10.09 connected to my router and using also a static IP
I purchased MBL last Saturday. Set up was easy and WDTV Live saw it as a media server easily. In the afternoon, I plugged in a USB stick to watch a movie and at the end, I pressed the eject button in the remote control to remove it. After I did that, I tried to access MBL through the Media Server option and I got a ‘No Storage Present’ message. Tried again and again but had no luck. I could see MBL from my PC and ping it but WDTV Live was still presenting ‘No Storage Present’. I temporarily sorted the issue by restarting MBL and voila, it was there but for how long?
Next day, I did the same. Inserted USB stick, watched movie, removed it, MBL disappeared again from Media Server list. Restarted MBL, and it appeared.
Yesterday, I experimented a bit and left USB in. Switched on and off WDTV Live several times, Twonky was still present in Media Server. Then I thought to remove USB and check again but also plug it in after I had the same message displayed. Same thing happened, ‘No Storage Present’ in Media Server. Inserted the USB back, and all of a sudden MBL-Twonky appeared in the Media Server list.
My question is:
Is this normal behaviour?
After I insert a USB, some info about Media Servers is stored in USB and without the USB stick, I have to restart MBL if I want to operated it without USB. This is clearly a WDTV Live issue since MBL and Twonky server can be seen normally from my PC.
I thought to open an issue in the corresponding forum, but I would like first to hear a few opinions.
Thanks in advance.
