USB Detection

I have the latest version of ATV Flash and AppleTV software. I have a 4TB WD My Book External Drive Mac OS formatted. Smart Installer and all plugins are installed and up to date. The Drive is not being detected via USB when I look for it thru Nito.

Any Ideas??

Unfortunately the AppleTV will only support drives up to 2TB in size.

Anyone know if the 2TB limitation is an AppleTV limitation? I’m wondering if you formatted the 4TB drive with 2 partitions of 2TB each if it would work?

Just a thought… :wink:

I had this problem initially as well. I solved it by:

  1. Making sure the AppleTV was NOT trying to sync with iTunes. I set up a custom sync with nothing to be sync’ed to stop the process
  2. Restarted the AppleTV to make sure the drive mounted

Everything worked as advertised after that.

What if I have a nas enclosure with two bays, and each drive is a 1.5TB would that work? or do I need to do 1TB drives?

Thanks
