I bought a MBL 2TB last year. I have never been able to install it. I though I’d give it a go now but NOTHING seems to be working with this unit.
I am on a MacBook Pro.
I CAN access the MBL from a browser, but I am not allowed to do anything, presumably I’m only a guest or similar. Every attempt to create a user or similar is met by an error “you are not authorized to do freaking **bleep** on this thing…”. What’s weird is that there’s no login screen anywhere, so even if I wanted to I cant use the admin passowrd to make things easier.
The unit is not discovered when I run the installer. I CAN connect to the drive both as the admin and a guest if I connect to it via SMB.
Iam getting VERY close to recording a video as I bash this piece of **bleep** to molecules and post it on youtube to serve as a warning to others.
This post is a request for the final chance WD will ever get to save a customer, otherwise they can kiss any future business goodbye.
