I just got myself a WD TV Live (the new model) and I am having some difficulty getting it to work. When I try to add a share I get this:
“THE SELECTED SOURCE IS CONFIGURED AS READ-ONLY WHICH PREVENTS THE WD TV FROM SAVING THIS MEDIA LIBRARY”.
I did not have any problem of this sort with the old model.
Anyone have a solution, please.
Solution is fairly plain: You need to give Read / Write access of the share to the WD.
The old model didn’t require that because the old model doesn’t support Media Library for anything except USB disks.
Thank you very much.
All my shares are checked “READ+WRITE+Full Control”. This is what you meant, right?
What OS is your PC using?
…then you need to make sure that the user the WD is logging in as also has Read / Write, since Win7 has specific permissions per user.
If you’re using the user EVERYONE, and logging the WD in via “Anonymous,” then it should work…
“If you’re using the user EVERYONE, and logging the WD in via “Anonymous,” then it should work…”
Yes, yes, and unfortunately no - it’s working.
Can I go back ti factory default or something like that and maybe start over?
Resetting the WD isn’t likely to change anything… if your PC is telling your WD that it’s Read Only, there’s nothing the WD can do about it…
Do you also have “Password Protected Sharing” turned OFF?
I think so. :manembarrassed:
How do I check this? :manembarrassed:
In Advanced Sharing Settings on your PC.
“Do you also have “Password Protected Sharing” turned OFF?”
Yes to the above .
