Question about Computers & Internet
Good morning I have set up my new Zoostorm pc and tried to make connections to two separate external network drives that I have purchased. The first network drive which I connected through my broadband connection, could not been located on the pc. I involved my Technical Computer advisor and he spent 4 hours checking all the settings and tried the unit at his home using the same broadband connection. He concluded that the unit was faulty and I returned the unit for refund. I purchased and installed a WD Live Duo external network drive. The pc could not at first find the drive. After support from WD the drive could be seen on My Computer but when the WDSmartware was run and the dashboard displayed for a back up process the WD drive was not shown. Over five days WD Support has checked all the settings and connections that they believe could be an issue and still the WDSmartware cannot detect the drive. I installed the WDSmartware on my laptop and the drive is displayed in the dashboard ready for a backup to be made. The conclusion is that as the WD network drive is working on the laptop then there must be an issue with the pc. The pc was purchased through Amazon with Windows 7 Home edition installed. Windows back up is not available on the Home edition. Do you have any experience of network drives not working on Zoostorm pc's? Do you have any advice on any settings to be checked/changed or other action that can be taken to operate a backup. David Hillman

Try setting configuring the privledges setting. Make sure there the network setting is correct, and make sure all user accounts have admin access to network

if you are having problems with your Linksys routers, reset the router and configure it again. In configuring the router, I suggest that you use the online tool that will automatically configure your router. It is similar with the setup cd but the online tool works better. The reason why the setup cd fails is that it has its own bugs. So just use the online tool. You can get the online tool on this website--www.linksys.com/easy.

There are two possibilities:
The Mybook USB/ATA controller board is faulty.
In this case you can simply take apart the enclosure and mount the disk into a new enclosure. WD Mybooks are SATA, but double check the hard disk connector to ensure.
The hard disk inside is faulty.
In this case repair may be expensive. You need to locate a data recovery facility with a 'clean room' , the cost is usually more than $800.
If this happened after a power surge, then the problem is most likely a faulty controller board.
If instead you have dropped the hard disk it is possible an hard drive failure, in that case repair will be expensive.
A replacement enclosure will stfrom art about $20 on Ebay or Amazon, and must not necessarily be WD .
Check if your disk is Sata or PATA (IDE) before buying the enclosure.
