WD MyBook World Edition won't show up to map to drive

It will show up through my router's summary of the network but it will not show up so that I can map it. I've used it before without the Mionet software and would like to do it again. I'm running Vista 32 bit.

SOURCE: mionet application doesn't show files in subfolders of shared folders

I am having the same problem, but I have a solution. I don't know if its a permanent solution though. You have to setset mionet though the drive. Enter your drives ip address into your web browser and go to the mionet section. One option is to reset mionet. That has worked for me so far, but its useless if your not on your home network.

SOURCE: Can't map network drive WD Blue ring edition

The Failed Mount issue is usually caused by Internet Security settings. The most common way to resolve it is to add the following files/ports to the exceptions list of your firewall(s) -- in some cases you will need to add it to the Windows Firewall, even if you have another Firewall installed as well:

MioNet.exe (C:\Program Files\MioNet\jvm\bin\MioNet.exe)
MioNetManager.exe (C:\Program Files\MioNet\MioNetManager.exe)
ServiceStatusGui.exe (C:\Program Files\MioNet\ServiceStatusGui.exe)

These ports are also required for MioNet to create a drive-letter for remote drives:
TCP In/Out 443
TCP In/Out 445

How to access my WD ebook locally to store information??


Try and map it, by right clicking on 'my computer' and select 'map network drive'. In the folder option type: \\**ip address**\public (where **ipa address** needs to be the ip address assigned by your router or one of the 2 default names: mybookworld or wdstorage. If you have previously changed to name of the NAS drive, use the name you assigned.

WD mybook 1TB is gone from the network


Have you tried different cables or a different port on your router. Is there any way to get into the Hard Drive by connecting it directly to a PC and checking the network settings or anything..? If not, then you may have to connect it directly to a PC and share it to your other PC's.

WD Hard Drive Not Detecting


Yes, this can be done via the user web interface, by typing in mybookworld or wdstorage into the web browser and the shared storage manager should come up. If you go to general setup there should be an option to update network settings.

the best thing to do is to stop mionet and then restart it and see if that helps.
If it doesn't then stop mionet and manually map to the drive.
go to my computer and then map drive choose a drive letter and map to wherever your files are (mine is on the root of the drive so my share starts with id.....) it may ask you for a password. if it does then you need to uninstall mionet and then reinstall it. when it starts for the first time it will say that if you use a certain backup program then you will need a username and password, make a note of these as you will need these to log onto your mapped drive.
to stop mionet running just right click on my computer, select manage, go to services and set the mionet service to disabled.

How do you set up multiple WD Anywhere users on the network to share the same MyBook World Edition


hey,

-No WD Anywhere allows 5 users I think.
This could only be the solution, if you installed WD Anywhere on other PCs before

Check out the MioNet site, think they give options for new users.
if this is not the problem, I don't have a solution by now.

bye
