Question about Western Digital My Book World Edition 1TB Remote Access Storage System
I hope someone can help since WD can't. I have a 1TB My World Book drive and cannot acess it through my browser. Typing "mybookworld" in my browser has never worked. I ended up assigning it a fixed IP on my network to get it to even work. Now, I can access Shared Storage Manager through my browser by typing the IP address, but once I try to click on a different area, it says I haven't authorized correctly and to check the manual. Of course, this isn't mentioned in the manual. A pop up window asking for a username/password used to come up, but it doesn't anymore. Pop up blocker is off. Any help?
I had exactly the same issue after removing the MioNet software. My device is connected to a router that assigns IP addresses (DHCP) and can easily be accessed using explorer and by mapping the drive so that its available on startup.
The solution I found is as follows.
The unit has a default reset button that will reset the unit User Name to "admin" and the Password to "123456" Without the quotation marks.
The button is recessed in a small hole between the power connector and the network connector on the back of the unit. Its much the same as the small hole on a CD/DVD Drive used to remove discs from a PC that is switched off. You will need a paper clip or similar to reset the device.
Step 1. Switch off the unit and remove all leads.
Step 2. Insert the paper clip into the small hole mentioned above and press (not to hard though)
Step 3. With the clip still in the hole, connect the power lead and switch the unit on.
Step 4. Wait until the circular power button lights up ( this can take anything up to a couple of minutes). Once lit count to 10 and remove the clip.
Step 5. Re-connect the network cable and return to your PC.
Step 6. In your browser type in "wdstorage" No quotation marks.
Step 7. This will open the shared storage manager page. select your option and when it prompts for username enter "admin" and for password enter 123456
Once done you can change usernames and passwords as required.
