Hi everyone. Just bought a 1TB My Book World Edition drive yesterday, so that I could have it on our home wireless network for backup and file storage for our laptops. I have plugged it into the router and it is discoverable on the network just fine. At the “Where do you want to save your backup?” screen, I can search for the folder on the network that I want to save the backup to, but at the next step it asks me for a password. When I type in “admin” username and password, it comes up with the error message “access is denied”. I’m not even sure why it is asking me for a username and password. It has also come up with the error message “the array bounds are invalid (0x800706C6)” on another attempt. Has anyoe else had a similar problem with Windows backup? How do I get the Windows backup software to save to my WD My Book World Edition?
Hi there, what if you use “everyone” as the username and a random password? it works for the MyBook Live, you can check if it works with the MyBook World, if not then create a private share and use the private share username and password and see if it helps.
