Are you using Raspberry Pi 2 with the kit?
Did you follow the official guide on how to use BerryBoot?
BerryBoot never revealed itself to me. WDLabs directions said to assemble Raspberry Pi2 to the kit, power-up, wait 10 min and open browser to 'ubunto-standard'. I used 192.168.1.35 instead and it worked in the beginning but, only briefly.
Check out these FAQs regarding Berryboot.
_I'm not understanding this much as I have not had hands on with BerryBoot it was preinstalled on the SD card and all I did was plug it into Raspberry SD slot_
What other devices do you have connected to your router? How is your network configured (routers, switches, other devices, etc.)?
NetGear WiFi switch/router 10 attached devices are; 3 wired. 2 are dhcp dynamic, 1 (ubuntu-standard) is assigned 192.168.1.100 by me. 7 wireless - dhcp- all 10 are unique addresses.
I'd try first powering down the whole kit and then, after starting it, check the way it is recognized in the router and try to assign it another IP as there may be a connectivity issue there.
Tried this as per above.
Try reinserting the SD card and re-plugging the HDD to the device.
Tried this also.
What OS are you using on that device?
Desktop is Win7 Pro 64bit
In order to troubleshoot the HDD if it has some issues I'd recommend connecting it to a working PC and running WD Data Lifeguard Diagnostic too. If the drive passes both the quick and the extended tests it should be safe to use and could be safely ruled out as the potential cause of the issue.
Installed and ran DLGDIAG
Extended test=Fail. Test stopped with error(s) at 1810373375 of 1953458175
