The MyBook Live (recently purchased) has eventually settled down (see previous posts for info).
I have however now encountered another issue i.e. the drive which was previously going to sleep as per expectations is now staying awake with the green light flashing all the time as though it’s being accessed?
This has only started since we purchased a brand new Windows 7 Laptop. The Laptop is on the home network, I can see my Mac the MBL and Twonky Services. I can access my media through Twonky and through MBL Public Shares on the Lappy. I have turned off Twonky merely as a process of elimination – still flashing green.
Another issue – when I tried to access the private share on the MBL I was prompted for username and password. I put in the email address and password I use to access WD2GO web access. However this didn’t work so I tried the password I use to access the drive’s account plus email address – again nothing. This has got me puzzled. Do I need to set up another account as I’m trying to access on my local network from another PC which is set up in the wife’s name, or is there another reason why I can’t access this private share? The Laptop is set up for sharing BTW.
