BDP9700 not mounting USB3.0 hard-drive?
The BDP9700 does not mount my USB3.0 NTFS 2.5" 640GB portable hard-drive, even though it is USB2.0 backward compatible. The drive mounts everywhere else.
The BDP9700 seems to detect something but the drive was not accessible. Restarted the player with the drive already connected; same thing. Tried with different cables, including the special USB3.0 cable; nothing changed. Took away the player's power, re-plugged; nope.
Tried the hard-drive on all other devices I could find, with different cables; functioned perfectly at USB2.0-speeds with an old Win-XP laptop and my cheap 2009 media-player, or at full USB3.0 speed with my new Win8 computer. Just for measure I tried an older portable 2.5" 120GB USB2.0 NTFS hard-disk; worked fine on the BDP9700 and everywhere else of coarse.
Bought a 4-port USB 3.0 hub with huge power supply to power the USB3.0 drive. Now at firmware v3.80. Nothing works.
THIS IS NOT A POWER ISSUE ! :( See below
