    get a smaller drive or wait for WD to put out a "fix", even if they do create a fix, it will be for the live (if we're lucky) and newer players, not the original or Gen2

    The same notice is also to be found in the Announcements section:

    As Rev said, no fix so far, and the 1st Gen., 2nd Gen. and Mini will not be updated any longer, so they'll max out at 2 TB per drive.
