I have a 4TB MyCloud device, the main purpose is to use it as media server at home. LED TV’s in the house have all WD TV LIve and must say the setup was simple… now the part that gives me a headache… transfering about 3TB media files to the MyCloud HD. Tought it was simple… plug in HD in USB port and go… but no. OK watched the video how to setup and choose option direct connection… this is the set-up: Mac with 3 WD 1TB connected, network is at 1Gbit (I see 2 green lights on the WD MyCloud) connected Apple Mac (model late 2012) and WD direct with cat 5 cable, Transfer speed is on average 26MB/sec no matter if I divide the transfer from 1 disk or 2. If someone can tell me… this is normal or you can to this to increase the transfer speed I would be thankfull. (tried before with laptop but that one had no Gb network speed there was the expected 10MB/sec)
Software: tried to install the WD software WD My Cloud, but when it opens everything is blank… meaning no text and also no text in buttons. re-installing didn’t do the trick. Have this problem only on the Mac but works fine on Windows.
