So since the firmware upgrade to v4 I’ve had nothing but issues. So I decided to downgrade the firware to the last version of V3 which had worked well for me. I followed the instructions here: http://community.wd.com/t5/WD-My-Cloud/Easy-method-to-downgrade-to-previous-version-of-the-firmware/td-p/773073
Everything worked well, however when the drive rebooted after the manual firmware install I couldn’t get into the WEB UI. I get the black screen with the WD logo and shortly after the dialog “Attempting to Authenticate” appearrs, it disappears and then nothing, just a black screen. I can access the drive via my Windows explorer as well as using the Desktop WD App and WinSCP.
I decided to cut my losses and go for a reset manually, I actually used a timer and held the manual reset button for 45 seconds. I preceeded this with a power cycle and foillowed it with a power cycle. I’ve tried this twice and nothing. I still can use my old password to log onto the d evice using the WD Desktop App
I’ve also used the WD Setup app. It recognizes the drive, checks it for issues, then does nothing else.
I want to use th UI to turn off automsatic updates, and turn on SSH as I loved using WinSCP for file transfers.
I’m on Windows 7 and I think running fw v03.04.01-230.
