When I initially got my WDTV it was running fw 1.01.01 and I was able to play both NTFS formatted drives as well as HFS+ format drives

I then upgraded the fw to 1.01.02 but did not complete the installation successfully. Result the different format drives were not being recognized anymore other then my fat32 thumb usb stick

I managed to re-install the fw 1.01.02 successfully by first re-installing the fw 1.01.01 which was renamed to 1.01.03 (wdrv.ver) this forced wdtv to see the fw as a newer version but after installation it was not able to detect my maxtor one touch 500GB drive(HFS extended format)

So I decided to re-install fw 1.01.02

I was able to re-install 1.01.02 since my WDTV saw the renamed fw 1.01.03 as 1.01.01 and allowed me to re-install 1.01.02

Unfortunately my drive was still not recognized... I've tried software reset..and hardware reset to no avail. In both situations I would only see the USB led on the wdtv flashing

I am becoming a bit desperate now:-(
Any suggestions would be highly appreciated

Thanks in advance
