MyCloud has stopped working. It jsut flashes now and I’ve tried numerous times to connect, have unplugged and plugged and nothing.
I have v 188.8.131.52 which is likely a problem. Why I was never prompted for updates, I do not know however I see all the updates are from v2 and up. I’d obviously like to keep all the info on the drive so not sure if I should reset, update the firmware or what.
Please advise. This is exhausting (with other software issues today compiled on this) and I’m hoping something simple.
The Firmware sees my previously connected device but I get Error Message Cannot connect to device then Failed to connect to device. I get nowhere else in the process.
I was accessing to my local network, yes.
The front is flashing a gold light.
There is no ethernet light. (I was using wifi)
I can access the router but do not recall how and will take investigating.
Dashboard to WD? No. The farthest I get is that image I attached.
I tried to login to get further info but cannot recall my password and I have tried multiple times to have it resent but I am not getting the email and have checked spam. I don’t think it should take 15+ minutes to get this email but can try once i get the reset email.
Yes, it cannot find the device.
I have not tried to reset as I was afraid of losing informaiton. I will do this if it is safe to do.
I think I got them all. Nothing has changed from teh time it did work to now. So it is beyond me. THanks.
Ok, so, there was an unplugged ethernet cable randomly there. It’s under a cabinet and I’ve not looked at this in years or know how it could have even become unplugged. I plugged it in and unplugged/plugged in power and do now have a solid gold light. I did the scan and wouldn’t connect and then I did the login and just tried a bunch of passwords and finally hit the right one (the reset email never came) and voila, it is there. So the ethernet and login I guess were teh right answers. Thanks much and I laughed a the manual comment–who ever does taht!!!
