Hello Rockers,

I am new on this site and wanted to share the nightmare that I am having with WDTV Live after I updated the firmware. Thought I would take your experts guidance and suggestions to help get me out of this mess.

Current Version: 1.06.15_v (How I wish I had not upgraded the FW)

-I have close to 200 HD movies in mkv format on my 3TB HDD. The problem started when I upgraded the firmware. Until then everything was going real smooth since the last 2.5 years.

-One by one the movies are getting locked with a lock symbol on them when I see from the PC. I tried changing the security settings and it does not help at all. Now these files cant be played by a windows PC as well. Its just "Dead".

-WD TV Live does not recognize the folder or the movie.

-A total of 140 movies have got locked and its totally disturbing for me ( am a huge movie buff).

Any help on this would really be a relief for me. BTW, all movies which I have are downloaded from torrents on to a PC and then transferred to HDD which is connected to WDTV Live.
