Ok theres the problem
I got a 3TB mybook live and installed it…worked fine. I liked it so much I searched and saw a post here saying you can have as many mybook live drives on a net as you want
when I installed the first drive i named is NSDRaw
When I installed the second drive I named it NSDMedia
when i attempted to add users to the second drive i got error 30005 - Unable to retrieve data. Make sure there are no network connectivity issues and try again.
so i go to my computer and tried to access the drive it asked me for a network password…none of which worked
so I disconnected the first drive and re-installed the second…it worked fine
when I added the first drive again it now did the same thing the second drive was doing
it short it only sees one drive at a time
Im running win7 home premium 64 bit
the drives are connected to an 8 port net gear switch
an email to wd support on friday is still unanswered.
can anyone help?
