I have a WDTV LIve HD player running the original firmware 1.01.00. I have connected a WD Elements SE Portable 750 GB drive to it. The drive has about 100 GB of content.
When I first connected the drive, a few days ago, the WDTV player scanned the disk in a couple of seconds and I was able to select and play content.
However for the last 2 days, everytime I go to Video > Local Drive, I can see the status at the top saying “Scanning USB drive for media”. I’ve left the scanning on for half an hour and it has not yet completed.
The only change in the last 2 days has been that I mapped the WDTV Live USB drive as a drive on my Win XP machine and copied a couple of files to the drive over the network.
I have tired removing the drive mapping on Windows and disconnecting the WDTV Live HD box from the network. This hasn’t helped. The box is still scanning the drive and cannot find any media.
Any suggestions on what could have gone wrong?
I have searched the other threads on “No media in the current folder”, but most of them see to related to accessing content over a network share or from a media server.
