WD MyBookWorld,white light-1TB dropping network connection

Hello Members
My above mentioned network drive is dropping the network connection every time I shut down the PC(win 8.1). I have mapped the drive with the WD Discovery.
Have to unplug power connection of the external drive for it to be accessible again. Some years ago I had the same issue though lost the link to the solution.
Any chance that someone still knows or has a link to the solution for this?

Merry Xmas to you all! :smiley:


Try to map the drive again and make sure that you select the option to reconnect at logon.

Are you using the drive with a static ip or DHCP?

Thanks ERmorel
I will try this and see if I can find the “reconnect” thing.
The setup is with static IP.
