Question about Western Digital My Book World Edition 1TB Remote Access Storage System

Open Question

Unable to access 1TB western digital drive wirelessly (when PC is turned off) from my PS3. This is hooked up to a Buffalo Air Navigator which does recognise the drive, and works with Twonky media server, when PC on ! PS3 connects to internet wirelessly with this unit, but does not find drive when 'search for media server' is selected on PS3. No problems finding drive on network from other PC's. Please help ! Rick.

SOURCE: Problems with Western Digital My Book World Edition

I have the same drive. It works great with windows XP but with Windows vista has difficulty seeing this type of drive and keeping the connection once it is established. Take it back if you have windows vista and then search for which 1TB drives work well with windows vista. It really has problems with windows vista 64bit. I was able to finally see the drive when I was using photoshop file/browse/network... then I dragged the shortcut Icon to my desktop and access the drive that way from that point on. Mine stopped completely tonight... I think the power cord went bad or something.

SOURCE: 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 !!!

SOURCE: External HDD not working , but can here it running

Have you tried powering it up without connecting it to the computer?
It should at least power up and do something. After that try connecting it to your PC (with the disk powered up already).

You can further check this external drive troubleshooting article, which has some tips on trying to get external disks to work.

SOURCE: I have an WDG1NC10000N (Western Digital My Book

check the 'entire network' sidebar in My Network Places. I installed a new version of Mionet a little while back and it decided to rename my WorldBook and change it to a different network Workgroup without asking me. I freaked out for two days until I saw the other workgroup listed and checked it out. Viola, there was my NAS just waiting for me to find it.

Buffalo LS CH1.0TL not recognised by computer on IP or USB


If you are using a Windows OS to access the drive, you will be unable to read the filesystem on this drive, as Windows cannot read XFS file systems which Buffalo uses.

Try downloading/booting off of a Linux live cd (knoppix, ubuntu, etc), they are free for download from their respective websites, and should be able to read that XFS partition.

I have the 1.5 TB Western Digital my book--I did the proper steps to reformat it to have it work with my macbook. My playstation 3 does not recognize that anything is plugged in when I hook it up with...


PS3 can recognize only hard disks that are formatted on FAT32. Since now the disk is formatted to HFS (a format only Mac's are using) you can't make it work. Save all the files on it and reformat it to FAT, then put back the files and only then connect it to the PS3.

How do I format my Western Digital 1T to fat32 for ps3?


Without a firmware update your PS3 needs it to be fat32 as you've noticed, and without the use of a utility Windows will not let you format a 1tb using fat32

You're best be it to download a program called SwissKnife, it's a utility that will allow you to format the drive the way you want

WARNING: Before using SwissKnife to format the drive, you have to take all the data off of it (onto your computer or another drive), if you don't then when you format the drive every file will be lost.

1tb external hard drive wont appear in my computer


Have you "Formatted" it before you used it, If NOT, Right Click on drive and select "Format" format NTFS. After this you should be able to use the drive as normal. Also Right Click, MY Computer, choose "Manage" when it comes up select Disk Management, and you can initialise it and format there.
