I’m having issues with My Media Library via Windows Network Share from my NAS and I’m trying to understand whether the problem lies with the WDTV or my NAS. Basically what is happening is at some point (and this seems to be at around the 24 hour mark), when I turn on the WDTV Live, it will be unable to find my media library and ask me to select another source.
If I go into the media library manager, I can see that all of the folders I am sharing show as “disconnected”. Similarly, if I try to connect to my NAS via network share, it will tell me that there is no media in the folder, although I know that isn’t true. So what I then try to do is just clear out the login info for network shares and start over. That works, in that after entering login information for the share I can see the files.
However, when I go back to the media library manager and try to re-add in my folders, I now encounter an error of “Unable to add this folder to your media library as you have reached the limit of folders allowed.” This message comes up after adding only one folder, so I do not believe this to be an accurate error message. What I’m guessing is that it is “remembering” the shares it lost a connection to previously and is continuing to count them against the total.
So what I’m asking for here is twofold I guess:
Is there a way to get the WDTV Live to forget about all of the configured media libary shares, a file or something where they’re stored? I have deleted all of the .wdtv folders on my NAS but that didn’t seem to make a difference. I am guessing that this is stored internally to the device as the only thing that has worked so far is a factory reset, but doing this every day is a real drag.
Has anyone encountered this issue with the media library getting dropped daily? I’m not sure if it’s the user that I’m connecting with, or if it’s something else. Anyone else’s experience might be helpful.
Thanks for reading,
