Mount WD Live TV Hub on WD My Cloud Mirror


I have the following devices:

* WD Live TV Hub
* WD My Cloud Mirror (Gen 1)

After enable SSH on MyCloud I got into the file system by terminal, however while trying to mount WD Live TV Hub I got an error:

> mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on,
> missing codepage or helper program, or other error
> (for several filesystems (e.g. nfs, cifs) you might
> need a /sbin/mount. helper program)
> In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
> dmesg | tail or so

Here is the command I am using for mounting it.

> mount -t cifs \IP_Share_Drive/wdtvlivehub /shares/MountDirectory/ -o guest

After research on internet about the message, seems I am missing the mount.cifs helper at the sbin directory of the MyCloud and is required to install the cfis-utils, however not sure what will be the best option for doing it.

Note: I have tried the mount command on Ubuntu and it works.

If you have any other suggestion, please let me know.


I haven’t try this yet, let’s see if any of the users can share some information about it.
