I appreciate you looking into it.
Can you comment on whether the drive re-transcodes pictures every time remote access is turned off and back on? (Or does it just re-transcode them once?)

I came to realize that turning off the remote access will remove "mediacrawler" process. This will make the unit to sleep. while mediacrawlder is running, I can touch the unit and feel the hardware activity.
its quite clear now the issu is reduced to..
when remote access is enabled, my unit doesnt sleep.

I've almost the same problem with my 3TB MBL. I've turned off remote access since I have more than 40,000 photos in it,I don't want it to take many weeks or even more to do transcoding. However,I really need to use my MBL as a Twonky Server,which also cause MBL keep on reading/writing pretty intensively for more than 3 days without any device getting access to it.
Admittedly, it's reasonable to take several days to do things like resizing or transcoding photos considering its CPU's performance. But it is unbelievable that just indexing files takes such a long time. There must be something wrong with this firmware.
Hope WD can fix this problem as soon as possible.
