Any idea what might have changed?

My laptop used to see my WD hub in Windows Explorer Networking, and I could transfer, sort, browse with impunity.

As suggested here, to fix a different issue, I did a 3 stage “reset” of my hub…

Now I can only access the hub via my laptop if I first run the WD “Discoery Tool”

Any ideas as to why?  Or how I might fix it? 

I’d REALLY like it to behave the way it used to.

Thanks!

Hi there, why don’t you map the Hub as a network drive? If you’re on Vista or W7 then click on start, and then type \theIPaddressofyourHub or \wdtvlivehub, then right-click the folder you’ll see and select Map Network drive.

On XP click on start> then click on Run> Then follow the rest of the steps.

It should force your computer to remember an access path to your Hub even when not displayed on the Network and Sharing Center.
