Apple TV doesn't recognize the USB drive

I can’t wait to get this product working! I installed it on a 4GB Sandisk drive, followed the installation PDF but when I plug it into the Apple TV and reboot it the Apple TV just boots up, and the software doesn’t install. Help, please let me know what to do 'cause I’m dying to get this product to work! :slight_smile: :slight_smile:

Do you happen to have a flash drive from 512MB to 2GB? I think having a 4GB drive might be the problem.

I heard from ATV support, and they’re gonna mail me a flash drive that’s compatible. Very impressive and fast response, I should be all set in a few days!

They sent the flash drive as promised, and it worked perfectly! I’m loving ATV!

Hi

I aslo received a flash drive from ATV Flash team, which they said would be compatible (a Sandisk Cruzer 256MB), but after the ATV Flash/Fire Core logo and alot of text (under the install), it keeps hanging here…:

Do anyone have an idea what’s wrong? Seems like someone is saying that the patchstick/USB drive is not compatible, but this one Fire Core sent me!
