WD LIVE TV box has been working for years no issue. It is connected to a Buffalo Drive that only ever showed up as a media server - the two WD External drives showed up both as “media servers” and were also listed under “Network Share” drives.
I always connected the WD boxes as a “Network Share” as it nicely linked the “movie.mkv” with the “movie.jpg” to give me nice thumb nails.
I can still see the drives and play the movies under “media server” but when I try to connect them via “Network Share” it keeps asking for a username and password. I never recall setting up an username or password. I’ve now logged into the WD drive and allocated a username and password and tried that but it does not work. I’ve reset the WD Live box (all but logins option) but no difference.
This does not seem to be a network issues - as I can see and play the movies, but my user experience is is messed up as I can’t do what I have done for years and I can’t see the thumbs I created over time.
