I'm taking over as WDs harddrive advisor since nobody else seems to be able to do the job.
no copy write law broken there.

I don't care if they hired me officialy or not , I'm taking the job and they can't stop me.

I don't know of any program to help you at this time , but I do know it's just a matter of time.

it's called brute force attack , which can take more than a century if you do it without a quantum computer lol

the software you're looking for will be called ( mionet password cracker ) or something simular

or in a more friendly way it will be called mionet password recovery program

thats as direct as I can be on this site without causing a fuss

hope that gets you kick started in the right direction.

shalom :-)

Can't manage MyBookWorld 1tb we (blue rings)


The issue you are experiencing is an error on our servers. Our next version of MioNet should prevent and resolve the issue, but in the meantime you must complete the following steps to regain remote access to your My Book World (blue rings):

To create a new MioNet account, please use the following instructions:

Part A. Reset MioNet/Anywhere Access

1. 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. The username and password it requests will be the same as your MioNet username, and the original password used for MioNet (if you changed your password on our website, it does not update the My Book World).

2. Once you have accessed the Western Digital Shared Storage Manager please select "General Setup", then choose "WD Anywhere Access settings". On the following page you will have three buttons to select: please click on the "Stop" button, wait until WD Anywhere Access status goes to "Inactive", then click the "Reset" button. Once the WD Anywhere Access Status goes to "Not Registered," (on older firmware, it will go back to Active), the My Book World has been properly reset. This will return the MioNet software on the My Book World to default settings. It will not harm your stored files.

Part B. Uninstall and Reinstall MioNet (on a computer located on the same network as My Book World)

1. Uninstall MioNet from one of your computers.
2. Insert your Western Digital installation disk or download MioNet from http://www.mionet.com/mbvista and launch the MioNet installer.

NOTE: You must use the installation disk or the link above to create your new account. Certain functionality related to the My Book World is related to the installer you use to register a new MioNet account. Failure to use the proper installer may result in the need to repeat this process.

3. Register as a new user. You will need to specify a new username and E-Mail address.
4. During the installation, MioNet should detect the now reset My Book World. Please add it to your new account.

Part C. Uninstall and Reinstall MioNet on your other computers

1. Uninstall MioNet from your other computers.
2. Install MioNet using the Western Digital installation disk or downloaded from MioNet from http://www.mionet.com/mbvista and launch the MioNet installer.
3. Register as a current user with your new account's information.

Please let us know what your new account name is and we will follow-up with additional information. We will also send you instructions on how to reset that account's password.

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.

Can't Access to MioNet, Can't access to WD Drive


It's a MioNet issue -- if you create a new MioNet account and reset the WD Anywhere Access/MioNet settings on the My Book World (accessible from the drive's interface on its http://ip or http://name address), you'll be able to access the drive again.

So here're your steps:

1. Reset the My Book World's MioNet settings (there's a reset button within the interface)
2. Uninstall MioNet (restart when it tells you to)
3. Re-install MioNet from the CD that came with your drive (restart again when it tells you to)

During this process it should find your My Book World and ask you to give it a name. Once you have completed the process, you should see the My Book World once again in your MioNet interface and be able to see the folders that are only visible when MioNet is running.

If you have any questions or want to speak with a MioNet Tech (I am one of them, my name is Laura), call our WD number at 1-800-275-4932 and tell them you have "Account Bug"

After instaling mionet i loose my ip-settings


the problem is another Filter Driver on your Network Card. MioNet installs a WinPK Filter Driver (you can't see it under the "This Connection Uses" list under Windows XP, but you can under Vista) on all of your NICs, so if there is a filter driver from other software, such as your Internet Security, you can lose Internet connection. Go to Control Panel > Network Connections, right-click on either wireless or local area connection, and go to properties. Check the "This connection uses the following items:" box for anything with the word Filter in it, select it, then click Uninstall.

MioNet is also not compatible with the following programs for this very reason:
Sygate Personal Firewall
BullGuard
Sunbelt Kerio Personal Firewall
AOL Xdrive

EMC Retrospect Express HD It was working and now it is not and is adking me for my original password to change the setup. It is not backing up to My Book


Your My Book World came with a CD that included the Retrospect and a program called MioNet (may be installed as WD Anywhere Access powered by MioNet). You can find your Username and Password by running the MioNet program, and going up to Help > Backup Info. If you have an old version of MioNet you will have the Backup Info button right on the interface on the upper right-hand side, it's a square button.

The issue you are experiencing is account bug. You must reinstall MioNet and create a new MioNet account, then attach the My Book World to the new account. You will then regain your MioNet access.
http://www.MioNet.com/mbvista -- this is the download installer for MioNet which works for blue-ring My Book Worlds. The White-Light My Book World requires different software.

To create a new MioNet account, please use the following instructions:

1. 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.

Go into task manager, kill all Mionet processes. Then start it again from the start menu. You should now have access.
