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

Can't manage MyBookWorld 1tb we (blue rings)


The issue you are experiencing is an error on our servers. Our next version of MioNet should prevent and resolve the issue, but in the meantime you must complete the following steps to regain remote access to your My Book World (blue rings):

To create a new MioNet account, please use the following instructions:

Part A. Reset MioNet/Anywhere Access

1. Please open your web browsers and enter (without the quotes) "http://<IP address of My Book World>" or "http://mybookworld" in the address bar. The Shared Storage Manager web page will appear. The username and password it requests will be the same as your MioNet username, and the original password used for MioNet (if you changed your password on our website, it does not update the My Book World).

2. Once you have accessed the Western Digital Shared Storage Manager please select "General Setup", then choose "WD Anywhere Access settings". On the following page you will have three buttons to select: please click on the "Stop" button, wait until WD Anywhere Access status goes to "Inactive", then click the "Reset" button. Once the WD Anywhere Access Status goes to "Not Registered," (on older firmware, it will go back to Active), the My Book World has been properly reset. This will return the MioNet software on the My Book World to default settings. It will not harm your stored files.

Part B. Uninstall and Reinstall MioNet (on a computer located on the same network as My Book World)

1. Uninstall MioNet from one of your computers.
2. Insert your Western Digital installation disk or download MioNet from http://www.mionet.com/mbvista and launch the MioNet installer.

NOTE: You must use the installation disk or the link above to create your new account. Certain functionality related to the My Book World is related to the installer you use to register a new MioNet account. Failure to use the proper installer may result in the need to repeat this process.

3. Register as a new user. You will need to specify a new username and E-Mail address.
4. During the installation, MioNet should detect the now reset My Book World. Please add it to your new account.

Part C. Uninstall and Reinstall MioNet on your other computers

1. Uninstall MioNet from your other computers.
2. Install MioNet using the Western Digital installation disk or downloaded from MioNet from http://www.mionet.com/mbvista and launch the MioNet installer.
3. Register as a current user with your new account's information.

Please let us know what your new account name is and we will follow-up with additional information. We will also send you instructions on how to reset that account's password.

Cant connect my 1TB WD world edition to my linksys router


Your My Book World should not be formatted or you will lose all ability to access it through the Network -- it will simply become a hard-drive at that point. There is software installed on the hard-drives that communicate with your Router in order to obtain an IP and be available as a Network Drive. If the drive and the Router are communicating, you should see an IP in the DHCP list of your Router. It is possible that the My Book World is not setup for DHCP, so if it is placed in an alternate environment with incompatible static IPs, it won't be able to access the Internet or be available locally. You can try a hardware reset on the drive and see if it pops up in your Router's DHCP/Client list, at which point it should also appear locally and over MioNet (MioNet will need to register the device to an account before it will appear in MioNet, but it must detect the drive locally in order to attach).

1. Turn off My Book World
2. Identify the reset button on the back of My Book World
3. Depress the reset button while restarting My Book World
4. Keep the reset button depressed for about 10 seconds after you see blue lights on My Book World

Mionet unable to detect Lifecam 7000


A camera icon will show up at the bottom of your My Resources in MioNet. If the camera does not appear, then a manual scan is required. To scan for a new camera, go to the MioNet application, select File, then click "Scan for Cameras and new Devices…" MioNet will report any changes in the computer configuration.

If the camera isn't detected and an icon is not available, then there may be two devices interfering with a scan:

1. Built-in webcam: MioNet does not support built-in webcams. This device should be disabled in Windows Device Manager, the computer rebooted, and a new "Scan for Cameras and new Devices…" performed with the USB webcam. Once the USB webcam is detected by MioNet, the onboard webcam can be re-enabled and the computer rebooted.

2. TV tuner card: MioNet also does not support TV tuner cards. This device should be disabled in Windows Device Manager, the computer rebooted, and a new "Scan for Cameras and new Devices…" performed with the USB webcam. Once the USB webcam is detected by MioNet, the TV tuner card can be re-enabled and the computer rebooted.

3. If the camera is being used by another program, MioNet will not be able to detect it. Please confirm no other program, including the camera view in Windows control panel, is not using the camera.

After instaling mionet i loose my ip-settings


the problem is another Filter Driver on your Network Card. MioNet installs a WinPK Filter Driver (you can't see it under the "This Connection Uses" list under Windows XP, but you can under Vista) on all of your NICs, so if there is a filter driver from other software, such as your Internet Security, you can lose Internet connection. Go to Control Panel > Network Connections, right-click on either wireless or local area connection, and go to properties. Check the "This connection uses the following items:" box for anything with the word Filter in it, select it, then click Uninstall.

MioNet is also not compatible with the following programs for this very reason:
Sygate Personal Firewall
BullGuard
Sunbelt Kerio Personal Firewall
AOL Xdrive

Mionet application does'nt open


Two things to consider:
1. make sure the drive is connected; you can do so by trying to browse the drive through the my computer network places, or by pinging to the drive's ip; meaning the drive must have to be connected and communicating to your pc
2. completely uninstall the Mionet desktop tool, restart the pc, and then reinstall the Mionet desktop tool.

good luck !!!

Mionet problem


The issue you are experiencing is account bug. You must reinstall MioNet and create a new MioNet account, then attach the My Book World to the new account. You will then regain your MioNet access.
http://www.MioNet.com/mbvista -- this is the download installer for MioNet which works for blue-ring My Book Worlds. The White-Light My Book World requires different software.

To create a new MioNet account, please use the following instructions:

Part A. Reset MioNet/Anywhere Access

1. Please open your web browsers and enter (without the quotes) "http://<IP address of My Book World>" or "http://mybookworld" in the address bar. The Shared Storage Manager web page will appear. The username and password it requests will be the same as your MioNet username, and the original password used for MioNet (if you changed your password on our website, it does not update the My Book World).

2. Once you have accessed the Western Digital Shared Storage Manager please select "General Setup", then choose "WD Anywhere Access settings". On the following page you will have three buttons to select: please click on the "Stop" button, wait until WD Anywhere Access status goes to "Inactive", then click the "Reset" button. Once the WD Anywhere Access Status goes to "Not Registered," (on older firmware, it will go back to Active), the My Book World has been properly reset. This will return the MioNet software on the My Book World to default settings. It will not harm your stored files.

3. Register as a new user. You will need to specify a new username and E-Mail address.
4. During the installation, MioNet should detect the now reset My Book World. Please add it to your new account.

Part C. Uninstall and Reinstall MioNet on your other computers

1. Uninstall MioNet from your other computers.
2. Install MioNet using the Western Digital installation disk or downloaded from MioNet from http://www.mionet.com/mbvista and launch the MioNet installer.
3. Register as a current user with your new account's information.

Please let us know what your new account name is and we will follow-up with additional information. We will also send you instructions on how to reset that account's password.

Mionet is not showing up after login


Go into task manager, kill all Mionet processes. Then start it again from the start menu. You should now have access.

Yes it's the Mionet software....it's rubbish.
