Just purchased a My Passport Wireless Pro. I spent an hour trying to figure it out. My use case is simple… copy SD cards to the drive without another device. I couldn’t get it to work. I am a software developer so technological illiteracy is not the issue here.
Some of the problems I had:
- After booting up the drive and connecting my phone to it’s hotspot, I tried copying an SD card by pressing the SD card button. I held the button for 2s. Multiple times, no response.
- The device crashed twice in this first hour I’ve been trying it. All LED’s start blinking and the device froze. The first time I couldn’t even power off.
- Eventually the SD Card copy started (I think?) the 4 battery LED’s lit up solid continuously and got stuck in this mode. A folder structure was created but no files copied. Not sure how we’re even supposed to monitor copy progress ? With the LED’s ? This is clearly not working.
- Tried switching the wifi network to my home wifi at this point. I entered the password of the wifi in the webadmin but then nothing worked. I got kicked out of the hotspot, with “PW Incorrect”.
Terrible experience over all! I wish I could return this immediately.
