My Book essential 2 TB   

Postby marabubout » Sun Jan 13, 2013 5:21 am


I enjoy many years my WD TV LITE (1GEN) with a WD My Book Essential 2 TB until a few days ago when a bug crash the system.
Since then WDTV doesn't recognize the hard drive anymore on any of the USB port.
I can still however access the files from my HD throught my laptop
I found on internet that there was a kind of knows bug with the compatibility between WDTV Lite and WD My book essential but the only solution that they suggest i to reformate the Hard drive! What is not really an option for me.

Doesn't any one can advice me something else please?

Thanks for your help

Run disk check on the drive on your laptop, most likely the filesystem is marked dirty and WDTV might not mount it because of this.
