Can't Transfer large files via wd2go

Hi All,

 

I have searched the forum and this problem seems to have effected a number of people - though I havent seen any resolution, has anyone resolved this?

 

http://community.wdc.com/t5/My-Book-Live/Transferring-files-issue/td-p/331605

http://community.wdc.com/t5/WD-Mobile-Apps/File-transfer-to-mbl-fails-through-wd2go/td-p/288110

 

My set up -

mybooklive 3 TB

Web access from Windows 7 Pro (64 bit), i5, 4GB RAM

Good internet access on both sides (documented 35MBPS transfer on this set up)  

I have tried safe mode network access, couldnt connect and disabling all my security.

 

I'll give a kudos to anyone who can offer a solution!

Re: Can't Transfer large files via wd2go

Update MBL firmware, .net framework

Enable file transfer,network discovery and sharing in windows setting

Go to dashboard Settings/network/ftp allow ftp.

Remote access is enabled

Turn firewall off

Turn antivirus off

enter in internet browser http://(drive name or ip address)/UI/ssh and enable ssh ex. http://mybooklive/UI/ssh

 

then transfer files!!!!!

 

if still not successful:

go to dashboard

settings/Remote access/advance rebuild wd2go server

 

GOOD LUCK!!!

Re: Can't Transfer large files via wd2go

What if you want to transfer large files from a remote location?

 

This is where WD2go becomes a waste for me.

 

2GB Transfer limit..

Re: Can't Transfer large files via wd2go

I would love to see proof of people been able to copy files over 2GB  (single files) because i cannot do it and when you dig deep, the small print says you cannot copy files > 2GB.  I have found this with most NAS devices i have researched but you really have to dig to find this info.

Re: Can't Transfer large files via wd2go

 

ok pajjo,

 

i would like to show you, but i dont know how if i can read MBL logs with wd2go.com.

last night i've copied a 3.5GB file, unfortunatelly my problems are with 4.5GB files (DVD ISOs).

 

why cant WD clarify this for us?

 

again: i'm talking about copiing files using wd2go.com (internet-WAN) and not local network (LAN)

[ Edited ]

It's pretty clear in the WD 2go FAQ.  http://support.wdc.com/product/wd2gofaq.asp?lang=en

 

Maximum file size supported:  2GB.

 

If you can copy files larger than 2GB, that's great -- you're lucky  (and so am I, because I can copy up to approx 4.2 GB) -- but WD isn't going to support it, and isn't going to help you get there.

 

Here's copying a 2.5 GB file.
