I had to replace my MBL 2 TB because LED lights were not working. After I got the new MBL , I just connected it and my network found it etc.
I then just used smartware to do category backup . First I did mybooklive Default , but it was not showing up on iTunes and then I backed up music and photos to Public.
I must tell you in between two new firmware update was done also. Now, I can see MybookLive shows up when I turn on iTunes on my Pc and I can also play the music. But
WDPhotos and WD2Go are different stories.
Now, I have question for WDSmartware software…
I see in My Network Places the following folders:
Public on My Book Live Network Storage (MyBookLive)
-----Shared Music ( Empty Folder)
-----Shared Pictures (Empty Folder)
-----Shared Videos (Empty Folder)
-----Software ( Has WD software date 2011, when I got The first on and use some CD .)
------WD Smartware.swstor ( If I drill down here I can see all my music , pictures here)
Please note, in 2011, I had to go thru a lot of pain to get this going .
Will the shared folders be empty? Do I need to run so called setup? The replacement box did not have any CD and I did not want to use the old CD. Do I need to do something else?
