I have a great functioning MyBookLiveDuo 4Tb with a 2Tb USB extension…in my windows network. It never fails and only emails me after a power outage.It is firmware current and I use Smartware current as well.
My issue is with my 2 linux machines. I had perfect access from both from the time i put linux on those devices until a week ago. No real idea why the access disappeared. no more icon, none of the multitude of command line suggestions to mount. make directory , just find the thing . nothing works and i tried as many as linux community and wd community forums had/have
the my book is not bricked, just doesnt appear in linux any more.
I have put in mac address searches, ip address and all, nothing shows up. no rejection or error message other than there is no such directory, device , address.
I am using Linux Mint17 Mate. I dont understand how it was perfectly accessible one day and no way to connect to it, even using bookmarks and ‘recent’ places . i know the ip address, whic can change but no trouble with internet or any thing else. mac address stays the same and i cant manage to get the my book to show up at all anymore.
If someone has any idea , i would appreciate a direction to follow.
i cant begin to try to mount the thing until i can make it recognizable somehow, in linux. it just vanished one day and not just from one machine but the same in both, which otherwise are fine. i tried to fiddle with wired connections and wireless by making just an internal local network but still the my book doesnt show up
I have all my machines on a wired network, though i did try to make my linux laptop attempt to connect wifi. no luck in ‘g’ ‘b’ or ‘n’ i have a router and unmanaged switch(8) which works , just no more linux.
I got a few suggestions on how to mount but nothing works with finding the device in the first place.
if it could find and connect continuously automatically for a month, i cant figure out why it will not longer even find it.
