WD My Book World Edition (Blue Rings) and Ipad


#1

Hi

I have a WD My Book World Edition (Blue Ring) WD5000G032-001 and are very satisfied. However I am not able to connect through the WD Photo app. with my Ipad2.

I am aware the spec. for WD Photo says it has to be a newer version of My Book, but would still like to know if an update of the software will make the connection possible.

Today I have software version 02.00.15

Update software will not make it compatible. The transcoder that converts photos to iPad format does not run on the box (it’s fairly CPU intensive).

I’m sure that WD Photo is not compatible with the My Book World, Blue Ring.
