Re: reset button on back

Did you hold it for four seconds?

Re: reset button on back

yes, all of them from back to front.

 

i can see the device on the network as a ''computer'' but get an error saying 'windows cannot access 'homestorage' (the name i originally gave the drive).

 

i get error code '0x80070035   'network path cannot be found....

 

no response from wd either!!!!

Re: reset button on back

Ok, so after you reset it, did you reconfigure it?
