I have a WD DX4000 Sentinel using four HDDs (4×2TB). The unit was working perfectly until I finally gave in to the prompts on my windows 7 PC and upgraded to windows 10.
Now before the upgrade on my PC my sentinel displayed ‘WD MEDIA’ with the IP address and could barely be heard unless it was a warm day and the fan kicked in to bring the temperature down.
NOW the unit says “LOADING OS PLEASE WAIT” on the LCD display and the main fan runs all the time ( like its in some sort of a safe mode ).
In regards to its function I can still access all the files and watch them without fault. I have access to the dashboard, and it logs in with full system access. The only thing I can’t see is system information like " hd current storage capacities, temperatures, fan speeds etc…"
I saw a post of someone with a similar issue and he cured the fault by uninstalling ‘.net framework’ on his PC and re-installing it. This was on a windows 7 OS though.
I tried doing that but maybe because I’m less familiar with windows 10 I haven’t tried tampering with something that could effect connectivity.
Now I’m no computer WIZ so any ideas are going to have to be explained like you’re talking to a 4 year old please :).
