I have 3 Mybook Live 3TB drives. Two work fine. One of them I was geeting terrible transfer rates from 13kb, pause, up to 9mb, pause, 250kb, pause etc. (Other copied data 25mb).
Network is fine, checked connection (Cat 6 Cables swapped, ports swapped etc, even got a new gigabit nic card).
Last night I went into dashboard on all three and was promted to update the firmware. The two I have no problem with updated in a few minutes. 14 hours later and the problem one is not updating.
I had it stuck at 10% for hours. Next it got stuck at 100% then gave error 31103. For a few hours the network couldnt see the drive, then I couldnt access the dashboard.
Eventually I managed to get to the dashboard again and decided to back up the data to see if it was still functioning, I got 25mb copy speeds all of a sudden? I’m not confident this will last, or even if the firmware upgrade will make a difference, but it’s certainly becoma a can of worms!
It still will not update the firmware though. Any ideas?
