So I picked up a Live at the local Best Buy and am pretty happy so far.

I only have one problem and it's driving me nuts. I can't get it to read any flash media through the USB ports. I've tried several flash drives and it thinks they are all camera memory and read only. It can't see any files on the drives and won't let me browse folders. However if I hook my USB HD up to it, it works just fine.

Anyone else seeing this?

What kind of flash drives are they?  Have you tried formatting them to see if that might work?  Make sure you back up your data on the drives first.  I haven't had any problems with flash drives and the new WDTV Live.

What types of files are they? Are you able to view the same files over a network share?
