Hey I have been using my hub for about two years now with Windows 7 with no issues. I had an ethernet switch connected off of my router (which then connected to both my PC and the WDTV Hub), everything was running fine, I had the drive mapped and was able to drag and drop files through ethernet and all was well.
I have recently scrapped my old PC however, and built a new one, and now I have both the WDTV Live Hub and the new PC connected directly to the router.
I have been unable to map the drive in Windows 8, I have downloaded the WD Link Setup utility but the option to map the drive is just greyed out. I can see the drive through my Computer, its connected as a network location, however the files are all set out differently in the folder ‘by month’ ‘by date’ etc, and when I attempt to double click and view a file on my PC (which was never an issue before, usually streamed right there and then) I am told the file then needs to be downloaded to the PC before it can play.
Is there some fundamental setting I have overlooked? I can’t seem to just get everything back the way it was before!
Thank you if anyone can help me with this.
