if you have a thumb drive, put the msheet files on that.
unplug wdtv
unplug hdd
plug in thumb drive
plug in wdtv
wait to load
plug in hdd
enjoy :)
*keep thumb plugged in

some people have their hdd's partitioned to allow the msheet files on there also.  i just use a thumb and use a usb hub for my hdd's

Try deleting the .wd_tv on the thumbdrive and replug it, the wdtv will recreate it.
It may have some corrupted contents. This had fixed my constant scanning issue.

thanks you all for your help


im not sure which method worked but the scanning went ok...really only took a few seconds but nothing appears to have changed, should i have a different interface...i am running the latest wdlxtv and have my movies set up as for example movies-  hurt locker.avi
thumbnail named as folder.jpg(working ok) and movie sheet named as wd_tv.jpg...also have renamed a couple as hurtlocker_sheet .jpg but still nothing happening

any other ideas

Is there a space in the name of your memory stick? If change the name to one without space (ex WDTV).
MSheet2.1.0
