    Am I the only one in the universe who wants to use the 'autoplay' feature for music? In the .pdf manual under Autoplay (bottom of page 150) they say (music or video) but there is none to be found!?!

    Can anyone please tell me if this is possible, I need it for some one who is disabled. Thanks.
    Reason for edit: Removed non-WD link to PDF manual

    Post moved. If you have a Live, don't post in the Gen. 1 section next time.

    Hmm, the manual seems to say music or video, but the accomplanying screenshot shows only options for photo and video! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/blink.gif) Which version of the firmware do you have installed? If you have only options for photo and video, try selecting video, then place a few supported videos on a USB drive's root directory (top-most level i.e. not inside any sub-directory), plug in the drive and then plug in the player's power cord. If the player successfully starts auto-playing the videos, then maybe you can get by with using a blank video with the audio track you want included in it.

    I realized what I did after I posted it, I'm new here, sorry :/

    ..thanks for checking into it. I think Western Digital messed up with the music autoplay feature in the manual, as you've noticed. I updated the firmware like three weeks ago, but I think this is a new one out today: (doubt they added the feature)

    I want to contact WD support about this but from what I've read, I might as well paint my room and watch it dry. I'm really not pleased because I bought this unit for the sole purpose to autoplay mp3's resulting from a direct decision after reading what came to be known as an (IMG:style_emoticons/default/blink.gif) 'error' in the manual.

    The video autoplay works fine as you mentioned (root/thumb drive)

    *Your idea of converting Mp3's to a video format I think is my only option. Thank you for that. .. I'll test it out.
