howdy folks, I was wondering if anyone can help me with this issue. I have the 7702mkii pre-amp and it works great and I love it. having said that, I tried to connect a WD 1.5TB HD to it via the front USB port, the drive light light up, and blinked a couple of times then stayed solidly lit. however, when selecting USB input, it says "no connection"
meaning, nothing is connected (or I guess something not supported is connected) to the input.
it didn't make a difference how I had it formatted, NTFS or exFAT, still, it was not seen. I thought it was an issue about the size of the drive. so, I had an old 500gb drive, connected it, same issue. then I connected a 8gb thumb drive and it worked properly. can anyone tell me if they know of either an issue of this pre-amp (or Marantz in general) with WD USB HD drives or with USB HD drives of a certain size and larger that are not supported because the port can't properly power them. the USB port is listed as 5V/1A and I have no idea if it's the 1A rating that the 1.5TB drive can't function on.
the drive is fine, it works with my bedroom Onkyo 525 receiver, it works with all 3 of my Oppo players and all my pc's so, everything is pointing to the Marantz.
so anyone with the 7702mkii or perhaps the 8802a let me know if you either have the same issue or if you are able to use a large USB HD of a different brand with no problem.
thank you in advance to everyone who response.
