Question about Western Digital 500GB My Book World Edition 500 GB Hard Drive
Forgot my password to access the drive.
Reset button on the back doesn't work. Any idea what to do ?
How to reset the username, password, and network settings of a WD My Book World Edition hard drive.
The directions below detail how to reset the username and password (for the Shared Storage Manager utility), and network settings of a WD My Book World Edition hard drive by using the recovery button on the back of the unit.
then from WD software select General Setup->WD Anywhere Access settings->Reset.

Try signing in with your WD Access Anywhere username and password. I just had the same problem and tried this and I was able to gain access.

Well thats good so we just have to format the drive very so often, perfect resolve for that problem, I think ill let the kids kick this little white box around the street for a bit, just so I get my monies worth out of it.
