My WDTV keeps freezing whilst it is scanning the external USB2 hard drive that I have connected to it.
I have the latest official firmware installed (1.02.21) and the hard drive that I am using is a WD Elements 2TB External 3.5" HDD formatted in HFS+ (I’m a mac user).
When I startup the WDTV it displays the usual interface and the USB light starts flashing on the front of the player to show that it is scanning the HDD, but a few seconds later the scanning light goes out and the screen freezes so I have to unplug the WDTV at the wall in order to reboot it.
Strangely enough, once I reboot the WDTV reads the external hard drive fine until I power it down with the on/off button and then turn it on again.
Basically it will only read my hard drive after a full power-down reboot so I’m having to reboot the player by removing the power before every time I use it, which is quite frustrating.
Anybody had a similar experience, or worked out a fix for this? I’m wondering if it’s a problem specific to the WD elements external hard drive as friends of mine who have the same setup but use the Freecom 2TB external HDD don’t seem to be experiencing the same issue.
Thanks in advance.
