WDTV Gen2 FW 1.07.77_04.5.3 - freezing on 1.5TB HDD   

Postby nogo » Thu Jan 13, 2011 12:42 am

Hi Brad/WDLX Team, I would like to commend for great job on this update. Everything doing fine but when I insert my 1.5TB HDD which is 50% full of movies, I've noticed that it keeps on scanning the drive for a very long time until the unit freezes. This HDD has 4 partition. One partition is FAT32 for the custom fw and its settings. The other 3 partition is NTFS in which my movie/music/photo data are saved. But when I used my 150GB HDD it works flawlessly with custom background and moviesheets working good.
I really love to seem how my movies are presented through moviesheets but I can't use my 1.5TB HDD. Maybe you can have a little tweak on the fw so that it will not re-scan all the files on the HDD after unit will be rebooted.


I also have a request, may you include RTL8187L wifi adapter for your next update.


Thanks in advance.

Try to format this hdd with NTFS and see if it's working and use just 1 NTFS partition... Just try.

Thanks for the reply mate but I believe I can't do it since I cannot afford to lose my movies.

My box only freezes when im running on custom fw but when I ran the official fw I can play my movies flawlessly.
