MybookWorld - Blue Lights - Can't access Shared Storage Manager


#1

Hey everyone,

Looking for what is hopefully some really simple help here.

My Mybook World edition (1tb blue lights) works really nicely, however for some reason I can’t access the Shared Storage Manager of late. This wouldn’t normally be an issue as it’s only a LAN media server but I want to add in a second drive via USB and can’t find another way to access this (Windows 7) Anyone able to help me out on this one? I can’t figure out quite what the issue is, I’ve tried connecting my computer to the router both wirelessly and via ethernet, I’ve also gone to the extent of trying a different router - much to the same effect.

Any help very much appreciated in advance.

On a possibly related note? The drive doesn’t always show up on my routers DHCP list (though still works)
