WD is happy to release the My Book Live Firmware Version 02.41.05 – 034.  

For the firmware update and release notes please check out the  My Book Live Product Update page.

For instructions on how to do an automatic update, please refer to  Answer ID 5735: How to update the firmware on a My Book Live or My Book Live Duo

Critical Note:

"My Book Live drives that have been upgraded to firmware version 02.41.05-034 offer the option to switch between two different DLNA servers:TwonkyMedia or WD Media Server. The benefit of upgrading to the newer WD Media Server is to gain full Windows 8 certification and to take advantage of WD’s app for Windows 8. The patches (provide in the KBA link below) offers the choice of using either DLNA server, and the option to switch back to the other server by simply applying one of the patches.

Note: To try the WD app for Windows 8, go to the Windows 8 app store and search for WD. To enable full functionality of the WD app for Windows 8, you must apply the firmware version 02.41.05-034 update first. Go to the WD KBA #5735 link provided below to learn more about, including how to download the patch.
