Ladies, Gents, and Hard Drive Aficionados!
Ok, so I have purchased a 4TB My Cloud Drive. I have attached the drive to my TalkTalk router (Huawei) as per the instructions. I have downloaded the installation software, but it cannot find the drive. I have tried to manually find the device via the network sharing centre and cannot see it, despite being able to see other devices (TV, Laptop) on my network.
I am trying to find the drive via my home pc which is connected via network electricity plugs, so I thought this may be causing the problem, so I disabled the lan connector and plugged in a wireless dongle and connected. This did not solve the problem.
I then decided to check if the router had registered its connection. I made a note of the MAC address and consulted the Ethernet devices that were connected to the router. I could not find the drive.
I have tried searching the forums and the web and cannot find a solution.
What exactly does the solid blue light mean, because as far as I gather it means it has booted and is obtained an ip from the router?
Please help. My wife is complaining daily about the fact her phone is full with pictures!!
