I have my WD Live networked to my PC. They connect fine, no issues.
For a few folders, not all, the WD Live wont see everything in the folder. For 1 folder of tv shows, there are about 41 files. The Live will only see 32 of them. Same issue in lots of folders, but different numbers. Another show has 98 files, but the Live only shows like 52.
I tried moving them around on the PC, playing with subfolders, etc. Doesnt help much. If I make 2 subfolders under that tv show’s main folder, 1 I put in the majority of the files, and in the 2nd I put in all the files it wasnt seeing before, then the Live will see them just fine, and they play back fine. But if I put them all in one subfolder, then it wont see any media.
Rebooting either device, reconnecting, I even replaced the PC’s hard drive with a new one (was doing this anyway), so all the media was copied to a new drive, which was then reshared. Nothing changes it. Sharing the folder separately from the larger share also doesnt work.
And its only for a few folders as far as I’ve noticed, not everywhere, though it could be most. There seems to be no logic to it.
And for the **bleep** of it, I tried connecting to the pc with my bluray player, that seems to also have the same issuse, it wont show the exact same files. But I dont get how the pc side could have any issue, its just files in a folder. And when the networking/share works fine, why would they just not see all the files?
