How do I open my WD live hub in Windows Explorer?

When I have my network folder open, WD shows up, but when I double click on it it opens the webpage to log in and stuff. How do I open it in windows exlporer? I did it once, but can’t for the life of me open it again. How is it done?


The first thing you will want to do, to make things easier, is to map the HUB as a network drive.  Now, I can’t go through the procedures for every OS, but this is how to map it using either Vista or Windows 7.

First, click on Start, then click on Computer.

A new window will pop up and at the top of that window you will see Map Network Drive.

Click on “Map Network Drive”.

Another widow will pop up for Mapping the Network Drive.

Next to “Drive:” you will see a dropdown box, from there you can select the drive letter you want to represent the HUB.  It can be any letter that is available in the dropdown box.

Next to “Folder” you will see a input box and a “Browse” button.  Click on the “Browse” button and a new widow will pop up that has a list of you your network drives that can be mapped.  You should see in that list “WDTVLiveHUB” (if you don’t then the HUB is not connected to your network and you will need to do further things to get it connected, which will not be covered in this guide).  Click on “WDTVLiveHUB” and it should drop down and you will see again “WDTVLiveHUB”, click on it then click on Ok.

Once you have done that you should now have something like this:

If it is not already checked, check the box next to “Reconnect at logon”, the click “Finish” and your done.   You should now see be able to go to My Computer and see the HUB’s drive.
