Hello folks. First time poster - I got a WD MyBook Live Duo (MBLD) and generally it’s working fine. But I have a couple of questions - I SHOULD be able to stream videos from a laptop outside my homenetwork, right? For example, my sister’s place, using WD2go? After an age, I was able to actually connect. But now I’m connected, I can’t copy over files or stream videos or music.
Am I missing something basic? I can upload stuff to the MBLD but not download, basically. Connection seems to have been made properly (using WD2go). She’s on Windows 8, if that’s relevant, although I wouldn’t have thought so, once a connection has been made.
I tried opening a small Word file, but then it asked me for a username and password, which is weird because it wouldn’t accept my WD2go username or the admin account username/password. Thoughts?
