Corrupt Dashboard?

Brand new WD MyBookLive 2Tb, working exactly as it should up until yesterday - when trying to access the unsecured dashboard through my MacBook I am given this page:

File access still works, WD Quickview has no troubleshooting errors. Tried using different browsers & clearing their caches, restarting the MyBook and MacBook. Tried using MyBooklive.local, MyBooklive and also the direct IP address to try to gain access.

I can access the SSH settings page with no problems at all which leads me to believe that the content for the front page must be corrupt/missing when the shell of the dashboard and other content is working.

The HTML coding of the page shows no content where the right hand pane should be -

Can anyone help with how to correct this error so I can get access to the dashboard?

You can try resetting or updating the firmware

Hi Wizer

Updated the firmware tonight (it was already up to date but I overwrote the firmware there already) but no change. Exactly the same scenario as above.




Just curious:  how did you update the firmware when most of the UI (including the menu to do the firmware update) is missing?

I downloaded and copied the deb file to the MBL and used an SSH command to invoke the firmware upgrade script using the downloaded and copied file as the source.



Have you tried a different PC or a different browser?

Did anyone find a solution to this ? I have exactly the same but no SSH enabled. Seems silly to have to send back the drive, as advised by WD, just because a HTML page or two is not working.

Hi VanderW, i wish the problem solved, and would you pls tell how to solve it, thanks.
