My amigo , your monitor is most likely gettin old , Operating systems and video cards do not blur monitors unless you ordered them to do so , I'm a fully qualified monitor technition this stuff happens all the time , basicaly it's the focus block of the monitor , if it's not serious you're lookin at a few bucks to have it worked on , if more serious expect to pay more ,

and if you are me , you put on your ground protection and you open that monitor up and adjust the focus block on the flyback transformer , as CRTs age a bit the focus block needs adjustment , I can also tell you that if you plan on doing it , READ any and all documentation on how to adjust a focus block before you do it , and wear ground protection ( or if you're not scared to die like me , just use your plastic screw driver on the focus block and adjust the little dumpling. it's not rocket science in this particular situation just a focus block adjustment , and if that fails , it's time to chunk it , because more than likely it's about to totaly fail.. and easyer to buy a new one..

focus fuzzyness is a sign of bad things ahead ( 50% of the time. )

Again , if a simple focus block adjustment doesn't do the trick , I'd just chunk it and get another one
unless you're a hardware monkey like me who went to electronics school ...

And above all wear ground protection ...

I'm not responsible for accidental injury or death from following my advice on this , just trying to save your monitor.

as for a solve on this , it's a matter of your willingness to adjust the focus block which is on the flyback transformer , scary and dangerous not recommended for those who haven't made their peace with Elohim and are clumbsy lol

I hope this still gets counted as a solve

My hdd gets connected and after a few huors its disconnected and I can't re map it . need help in keeping it connected


Windows automatically puts USB connections into a power save mode, this will cause your USB connected devices to disconnect. Here are the instructions to change this setting in Windows XP. Pretty much the same process for Vista.
  1. In Windows, click on Start > Control Panel (or Start > Settings > Control Panel).
  2. Double-click on System, then open the Hardware tab.
  3. Click Device Manager.
  4. Click the + at Universal Serial Bus Controllers.
  5. Right-click USB Root Hub and select Properties.
  6. Open the Power Management tab.
  7. Clear the checkmark from Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power.
  8. Click OK.
  9. Repeat this procedure for the USB 2.0 Hub.

Mionet problem


Your account has something called "account bug"
You will need to reinstall MioNet on all computers, reset the My Book World, then attach it to your new MioNet account. You'll need to download the Blue-Ring My Book World version of MioNet here:
http://www.MioNet.com/mbvista
Then, to attach your My Book World to the new MioNet account (just select a new username when you re-install MioNet), follow these directions:

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.

My 500GB Mybook world edition's mother board died.


It's the format that doesn't allow windows to access the data. Only way to recover is to get another external drive and transfer the data to it. Then you could reformatt the old drive to work with XP. Hope this helps.
