I pulled an old 30GB HD from a toshiba laptop and put it in an Ultra external case but after reformatting it several times, both on Mac (non journaled) and windows (NTFS and Fat32) the WDTV cannot detect it. I have tried both USB ports on the WDTV.

The drive works because I can read and write to it on Mac and Windows and the WDTV has the latest firmware and works with any flash drive I use with it and works with other 320GB external drive I have that is formatted for Mac (Journaled).

Has anyone had this kind of problem before.

Just and idea. Check the NAME you gave the drive. Make sure it is ALL lower case with NO spaces. Put a "test" vid, pic, song on it as well. I could be wrong, BUT I had a similar issue til I resolved the name issue. Won't hurt anything to "try".

tried your suggestion but unfortunately no luck. Maybe it is the case although this is my second case.

I have a similar problem. I have a 1TB WD Elements USB drive. I figured that I was safe getting a WD drive as I was connecting to a WD device!! I am unable to see this device with the WD HDTV live, even though it works fine on any of the other 3 PC's that I have...
I will give the renaming of the USB drive a go, it's current set as 'Elements'....
