Cannot Access Shares

I turned the unit off while on a short vacation and when I turned it back on, neither laptop or desktop can access my shares. The desktop doesn't see anything through the NAS client utility, but the laptop does. Even though it can see it, it still says that the drive isn't attached to the network when clicking on view shares.

Any ideas on how to hook it back to my network?? Any help with GREATLY be appreciated!!

FTP not working on BlackArmor using IE or Windows 7 Explorer Share created, even public access enabled. Details: 200 Switching to ASCII mode 550 Permission denied

Check on BlackArmor Manager that the FTP mode is enabled for the folder you want access to.
You can check it by typing "" in the adress bar on your explorer, enter your login and password ("admin" and "admin" by default), then click
storage -> shares
if "FTP" is disabled, click on the pen (modify) and enable it. don't forget to click "submit" ;-)

Hope it was helpful

Belkin N+N storage router doesn't work wirelessly

Hi, I had something like that with my Belkin Router N+N with USB F6D6230-4 V1, only I had a configuration wit a wired XP pc, Wireless XP and Wireless Vista. With both XP pc’s it was really plug and play, but with the Vista pc I had some problems to access the on the router connected USB drive. The Vista pc was connected to the network, and had Inet access. Other shared (network) drives were accessible on the Vista pc.

The first thing I tried was if I could access the drive trough its IP address, (\\routerIP in my case \\, and I did get a question for a username and password. The only thing is that I tried all the regular names like Admin, Administrator, and so on, with my password but I did not get access.
On the internet there was no help to find for this model router on the Belkin websites (diverent country’s), the data on the Belkin websites is out of date, there is no support to find for new models. ………. So finely I did took the phone and did call the support desk…

Solution to my problem:
The problem seems to be in the Belkin storage manager program, that program works not correct under Vista. When I enter the routers IP and use the username “guest” without a password, it get access to it from my Vista pc. The follow thing I did was press the right mouse button on the drive, and press on “make connection” So..

Username : guest
Password : none

Hope, that this is also the solution to your problem.

This may happen because it cannot find the hostname of your device. Do the following:

1. Make sure your device is configured to use a Static IP address
2. Type in the IP address (instead of hostname) in the test page

This should fix your problem

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.

I can't access my drive through mionet. My son accidently unplugged the world book and I can't access it ever since. Should I reinstall the mionet. I can't remember if there were any installation CD that...

Once the My Book World has been plugged back in, it will request a new IP from the Router. If the drive was unplugged accidentally, the ethernet cable may have also been knocked loose: make sure all cables are attached to the Router and the My Book World.

If your drive is still not appearing properly in MioNet, you can do a Hardware and Software reset on the drive. It will not affect your data, and it will allow you to re-attach the drive to your MioNet account. You do not need to reinstall MioNet to do this.\

1. Turn off My Book World
2. Identify the reset button on the back of My Book World
3. Depress the reset button while restarting My Book World
4. Keep the reset button depressed for about 10 seconds after you see blue lights on My Book World

You should now be able to sign in to the Shared Storage Manager as admin/123456.

5. Please open your web browsers and enter (without the quotes) "http://<IP address of My Book World>" or "http://mybookworld" in the address bar. The Shared Storage Manager web page will appear.
6. Once you have accessed the Western Digital Shared Storage Manager please select "General Setup" then choose "WD Anywhere Access settings." Use the default username of "admin" and default password of "123456" (without the quotes). On the following page you will have three buttons to select, please click on the "Reset" button. This will return the MioNet software on My Book World to default settings.
7. From within the MioNet Client, go to File > Remove Computer. Locate the My Book World (WDStorage, MyBookWorld, or whatever you named it) and remove it.
8. If you do not see a new window from MioNet informing you that you have a storage device available, "Scan for Cameras and New Devices…" to detect the unit.

Can't Access Public Shares via NFS

You can mount the shares something like this:

mount -t cifs -o username=backup,password=YoUrPaSS // /mnt/nas/projects/

...where is IP of SS4000-E and /projects is the shares folder
and /mnt/nas/projects/ is folder you have created on your Linux box

Hope this helps

Can't see the folders after restarting SS400-e

If you check their website, you will find:
Upgrading from a previous version of the firmware (to version 1.4) is a “data destructive” process.
it is strongly recommended that you first backup your existing data to another system in your environment. It is also recommended that you understand your current configuration of users, groups and shares to be able to recreate this under the 1.4 firmware.

Problem Accessing Shared Folders in Network Stoarage Device

vista is only going to complicat things, try re mapping the drive, delete the shortcut and use my network places to find the drive then make a new shortcut to it if you can access it from there, i've had windows 2000 do the same thing especially with my laptop that I take to school, it a lot of times its due to changing ip's but occasionally windows just seems to forget where stuff is on the network and needs to be reminded. shortcuts can be made by draggin the folder to the desktop or desired location or right click the share you want mapped and select map network drive.
