Re: NAS issue

Check the user rights on the folder you are making? Also check if that folder is shared or not? Are you logging into both machines with the same username?
I would assign full rights to the username trying to access that particular folder from both pcs. Let me know

In your office network, for sure, you have a DHCP server who gave the IP addresses to all devices for that network and this seems to be the reason for why you could see your NAS. On home, you also need a DHCP server. You don't say anything about you home network. The best idea is to just make a temporary network with 2 devices: your computer and your NAS by connecting the NAS directly to your computer's network adapter, set the IPV4 IP for that adapter to the same class addresses as your NAS was set by default (usually NAS had "192.168.x.y" where "x" could be 0, 1 or 2 "y" could be any value between 1 and 254, but mostly, 1) and try to access it via http to manage him (need a user name and a password). For NAS default address and username and password, consult NAS user manual. Access it with from your preferred browser using: \\192.168.x.y
Once you gain the control, cut off his DHCP service and tell him to accept the IP address from the network defined DHCP. (btw: one normal DHCP server is allowed on one network! Cascaded DHCP also is allowed, but it's a little bit complicated)
Good luck!

Well, I had a seagate, they have new software, let me just tell you its a pain to use with a lot of devices, its very secure, but also limits your usage. I returned mine and got a different brand. I would suggest trying to reformat it to possibly a fat32 style. go to properties, and click format, should be able to select it although seagate probably doesn't allow this. I would return it for a different brand so you don't have to deal with all these issues. I am guessing this is a newer one which is where the problems are. They are getting very bad reviews.

Make sure you are logged in as the Administrator of your computer. Power cycle (turn it off and back on) the device. If that doesn't fix the problem. Try factory resetting the unit (depress the reset button on the back of the unit for 4-5 seconds).

Cant able to access the 1tb network storage

Consider a few things that may solve the problem:
1. this is how I always like to test; shut down the NAS drive for a minute and reboot; once rebooted see if it is accessible
2. need to know the ip address of the NAS drive and make sure that ip is not blocked by your system firewall (e.g. add that ip into trusted address on the firewall program; or temporarily disable any anti-virus or firewall and see if you can access, and if you can then it is the issue of firewall),
3.unless you have customized the settings, open my computer and on the addressbar type type the ip address if you know (if it is WD Mybook World then you can also try typing \\mybookworld on the address bar); in this case also try it by temporarily disabling any anti-virus or firewall program
4. one way you can figure out the ip for your nas drive is through the router's homepage; since I don't know your router type I can't give you specific steps; but try to get onto the router's main page and see the client's list or DHCP Client's List or something similar where you should see an ip also assigned to the NAS drive which is connected to the same router.

Post the feedback what happens... we'll see... good luck !!!

Unable to connect

When the LED turns continuous amber colored , it means your RAID is not yet initialized.

- Install the Intel Storage system center console (ISSC) software from the accompagnied cd-rom

- Start the ISSC and have it discovering your storage device (make sure you are in the same subnet as your NAS device)

- Once it discovered the device click "Log on storage console" , it will open up a browser and have you login.

Firefox should work , I however assume you are maybe in a different subnet , and therefore cannot open the page.
If FireFox really doesn"t work , try using IE !
