I bought a My Book Live over a year ago.
Nothing works properly on this stupid device.
Here is a summarized list of the things that doesn’t work:
- I can’t have admin access via www. wd2go.com from Mac OS.
There is a rediculous java problem and so many people reported it on this forum but WD doesn’t do anything about it.
Whenever I connect to this storage via an FTP client, one out of 3 times it doesn’t work for an unknown reason.
When it updates itself, or whenever I put some data on it, it becomes unresponsive for days.
4. Many of the options that they provide, e.g. static IP assignment don’t work.
- Here comes one of the most stupid problems with this device: The storage has a built-in public folder which is avilable to all the people in your local domain, and there is no way to restrict other people’s access to this folder!
This list goes on forever. I have been spending more time trying to fix this stupid device problems than I can imagine.
I was much better off buying a USB external storage.
