New here. Just picked up the My Cloud and I have to say out of all the great years of experience with MyBooks, this gets a huge “F”.
I unpackaged and pulled the MyCloud out of the box. I plugged it into my Router (airport extremem base state WPA/WPA Personal) and plugged the power in as well.
Within minutes the drive showed up in my Finder(Mac OS X 10.9.3.).
I cannot connect as I do not know the username or password.
I went to http://wdmycloud.local/ and I’m stuck at “Attempting To Authenticate”
I checked the WD My Setup App and the drive shows with a 169.254.4.168
The drive will not allow me to set it up as it cnnot detect the firmware.
