  1. Can't re-connect to WD My Book Live


    I have a WD My Book Live network drive which basically holds all my files (docs, photos, music etc.); up until yesterday, the shares on this were mapped to 4 letters (J:, K:, L:, MCan't re-connect to WD My Book Live ;). Yesterday, the power was cut off to the electrical circuit it's on briefly. Since then, I can't reconnect, either through Explorer or by trapping to remap it. I've tried doing it by the server & share names and by its IP address, but all I get is a window asking me for my password; when I enter this, it enters a loop of asking me for this before denying me access. (The error message is, 'The device or resource (ip address) is not set up to accept connections on port "The File and printer sharing (SMB)".' I can access the drive's user interface through the browser, but can't get to the files through Windows.

    I've tried all sorts of solutions through searching on the internet, including looking at the Firewall (but I don't know what I'm looking for!), re-enabling SMB under Windows Features (which did nothing) and numberous other things, none of which have worked. So I'm stuck.

    Can anyone help at all? Thanks in advance!

  2. Restoring backup file from WD Live Book

    I backed up my windows 10 computer to a WD Book Live drive. My computer died and I need to restore the back up file to the computer. When I use the Backup and Restore (windows 7) option, select the WD Book Live drive, I get the error message that no
    backup files can be found. However, I see the backup file when I open the WD Book Live drive. I am really stuck here and I need to restore my backup, can someone please help resolve this problem? Thanks

  3. Connecting to WD My Book Live

    I can log into My Book Live, but when I go to File Explorer My Book Live doesn't appear. On a separate PC using Windows 10 it works fine.

  4. Can't re-connect to WD My Book Live

    Cannot access wireless WD My Book Live after Win10 conversion

    Yes, by NAS I mean the WD My Book Live as it is indeed a NAS (Network Attached Storage). Can't re-connect to WD My Book Live :)

    Do you by any chance have a smartphone/tablet with a OS which can run applications? If yes you can try downloading the WD My Cloud application and see if it detects the NAS on your network (both the NAS and the phone need to be on the same network so if the
    NAS is connected to a router you need to have your phone connected to the same router via WiFi).

    If all else fails, try contacting our live support for more info. http://products.wdc.com/support/kb.ashx?id=2bohhs
