It could be a firmware issue in combination with a setting on the router.

***WARNING: Even though I state here to do the backup of your settings, I have experienced in the past with my DLINK (DGL- 4300) that it would not restore the backup file, and I had to re-enter all the information manually. If you feel uncomfortable with this, I would either write all the information from your router down, or use some other method to record your settings (like screenshots) OR find someone that is able to reconfigure your network settings if the restore does not work.***

First, I would do to D-Link's Support page and download the manual for this device, it can be found HERE under the Resources Tab. Also, download the latest Firmware, the SharePoint Manual and Utlity (under the Software Applications option) from the same page.

Open up the manual you just downloaded and read the steps on how to backup your routers configuration and then preform the backup.

Once the settings are backed up, I would perform the Firmware update (check manual for these directions also).

Once the update is complete, restore your settings from your backup file.

Then refer to the sharepoint manual about setting up the USB port for the kind of connection that you require,

My WD My Book 500 GB is not recognized by the computer, gets hot and vibrates


An external storage-device has four major components:

* the USB cable

* the power-adapter

* the disk-drive inside the enclosure

* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.

One of these components has failed.

Try a different USB cable.

Try connecting to a different USB port on your computer.

Try connecting to a USB port on a different computer.

Take a "multi-meter" and measure both the voltage and amperage output from the AC adapter, and compare with the specifications on the label on the adapter.

Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and then connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if it works at all.

Purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

Get the part-number and serial-number from the label on your disk-drive, and access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status", to see if they will replace the device, at minimal cost to you.

Note that W.D. has a "Customer Loyalty" program -- you can buy a new W.D. device, through the W.D. web-site, at a significant discount.

There exist commercial "data recovery" services that can try to repair your device, just long-enough to rescue and copy your files. For example, see: https://services.seagate.com/index.aspx?lng=en-US for a "no data - no charge" guarantee.

Wester Digital My Book 1 TB problems


Try booting your computer first and then connect the usb cable to the usb port on the computer. Connect the power supply cord directly to a wall socket. Also try the usb cable on different usb ports on the computer. If possible also try it with a different usb cable. If nothing works, check the file format system under disk management, you might have to re-format it.
