When you restart your My Book World, does it appear properly within MioNet?

You should be able to access your drive over the local network by typing \\nameofthedrive or \\ipofthedrive. If you aren't sure what the name or IP of your My Book World is, you can find its name from the MioNet interface, under My Resources. The entry (where you say it shows Offline) will have the drive's name, followed by its drive type.
If MioNet can detect the drive locally, you can go to File > Manage My Book World, and select the Manage button. It will be grayed out if the drive is no longer available due to LAN settings or if it has been unregistered from your MioNet account.

Mybookworld is not visible in mionet


Give up. I've had Mionet for over a year, and I have not been able to reliably access it remotely using Mionet, even on a 32-bit system. Mionet is finally advertising a 64-bit system, yet it still doesn't work--the drive shows "offline". Advice from Mionet in my many attempts to get support says to reset the hard drive--kinda hard when you're away on vacation. Even using Mionet web doesn't work reliably. In the end, the many, many chances I've given Mionet and Western Digital support to fix this have only resulted in frustration, delays, and ineffective advice. Overall, Western Digital has failed to produce a product that's remotely accessible, and you're left with a local-access-only outboard hard drive.

Can't Access to MioNet, Can't access to WD Drive


It's a MioNet issue -- if you create a new MioNet account and reset the WD Anywhere Access/MioNet settings on the My Book World (accessible from the drive's interface on its http://ip or http://name address), you'll be able to access the drive again.

So here're your steps:

1. Reset the My Book World's MioNet settings (there's a reset button within the interface)
2. Uninstall MioNet (restart when it tells you to)
3. Re-install MioNet from the CD that came with your drive (restart again when it tells you to)

During this process it should find your My Book World and ask you to give it a name. Once you have completed the process, you should see the My Book World once again in your MioNet interface and be able to see the folders that are only visible when MioNet is running.

If you have any questions or want to speak with a MioNet Tech (I am one of them, my name is Laura), call our WD number at 1-800-275-4932 and tell them you have "Account Bug"

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

EMC Retrospect Express HD It was working and now it is not and is adking me for my original password to change the setup. It is not backing up to My Book


Your My Book World came with a CD that included the Retrospect and a program called MioNet (may be installed as WD Anywhere Access powered by MioNet). You can find your Username and Password by running the MioNet program, and going up to Help > Backup Info. If you have an old version of MioNet you will have the Backup Info button right on the interface on the upper right-hand side, it's a square button.

Can't Access to MioNet, Can't access to WD Drive


Hi to all,
I just saved my files from my WD world book that used to run on mionet... all of a sudden then disk couldn't be mounted and my files and all of my work just was there but not reachable...

so I un mounted the H.D.D. from the worldbook case and installed it over usb with an sata to usb adaptor (you can install it directly to your pc if you like)

then I searched the web and found and application-driver to mount ext2-ext3 partition on windows xp-vista...

and I started to see the "light" :)

all my files were there, untouched, unlocked.... so i took a backup and now I'm using the h.d.d. without the ethernet but via usb...

the software you need is here...

GREECE SAYS HEY!!!!

best regards.... ;)

I've never even heard of mionet till now , went to the site , I can see it's a webcam device with a hard drive ?

reguardless of all that , tripple check the hard drive of the mionet webcam device as if you would a regular hard drive , of course remember if your ibook see it , it could be because the drive is somehow compatable with ibook , it could mean the hard drive is formated in a manor compatable with ibook , aka a mac type partition created by the mionet program , either way diagnostic proceedures apply , this all sure smells like a cheep webcam scam to me , but thats a little unprofessional of me to say that , lets just start with the basics , is the drive partitioned by any special sofware , is it a MAC partition , is it a DOS partition , is it an Non Dos parition

honestly don't blame the hard drive if you don't know what altered it.

lets dig in slowly , lets have a look at the parition table.

Going offline


I'm taking over as WDs harddrive advisor since nobody else seems to be able to do the job.
no copy write law broken there.

I don't care if they hired me officialy or not , I'm taking the job and they can't stop me.

I don't know of any program to help you at this time , but I do know it's just a matter of time.

it's called brute force attack , which can take more than a century if you do it without a quantum computer lol

the software you're looking for will be called ( mionet password cracker ) or something simular

or in a more friendly way it will be called mionet password recovery program

thats as direct as I can be on this site without causing a fuss

hope that gets you kick started in the right direction.

shalom :-)
