My usb drives not recognised..   

Postby Bullet » Fri Jan 15, 2016 7:22 pm

I use a 3TB WD harddrive in my usb dock. This one>>
Code: Select all
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0055PL2YI?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00
.
Problem is, using any version after 1.03.49_V_WDLXTV.COM_WDLXTV_LIVE-0.4.7.3, my WD Live (Old Version - WDBAAN0000NBK-NESN) will not recognize anything is even attached.
So, I have to stay on v.1.03.49. I have read that the WD Live will recognize a 4TB drive (maybe 5 or more?), so the problem must be my dock the higher f/w versions won't recognize.
What 4TB external drive (Model number) works for sure on the higher f/w?
Thanks, Bullet

Actually I would be interested to know if the USB docks [the ones that you can plug in 2 hard drives] are working with wdlive. Is there a list of docks that work with WDLIVE or it depends on the HD used ?

As far as I know docks are not supported because they don't expose the drives directly as mass storage devices. If the dock exposes the drive directly, then it should work.

and now the question: how can you buy a compatible dock ? Maybe some users of the forum have a dock and are willing to share their experiences.

The ones that work with linux should also word with wdlive, right ?
