I’ve been using my WD Live for a couple of weeks, today I came home and turned it on, selected Network Shares, saw my computer as usual, and when I tried to select it I was asked for a User Name and Password. This has not happened before, so I have no idea why it’s happening now. I have my sharing set to No Password, and I haven’t changed anything about my setup.
What User Name and Password is it referring to? Where do I find it? Or, is there a way to reset it to something I know? Also of possible interest, the Media Server option lets me see my PC. No User Name or Password requested there. I have gone in and set a User Name and Password for Win7 but that does not work either. I have reviewed a number of previous posts and tried the things mentioned there, but none have worked. Where in the hell did this come from? What account name a password is it referring to?
This is on a Windows 7 system with a wireless network that until today worked flawlessly. My device is fully up to date with the latest firmware. Thanks for any help offered.
