WDTV & Windows 10 (Build1703)


#41

Well, I lost them again……….

But got them back by doing the “Change Workgroup Trick”

Changed the “Workgroup” to a new name, didn’t reboot.

Both WDs saw the Win10 machine even though it was on a diff workgroup.

Attached the shares on both WD’s , work fine….

Changed the workgroup on the Win10 machine back… rebooted…. WDs seem to be holding the shares.

Very Weird…

this is why i stopped using WDTV … and for lots of other reasons

RPi3 with Kodi … add a share, and it just “Works” have never lost a ‘share’ connection in the past 4~5 years.

OK, I finally got it working. I had previously done the smb1 install and the powershell changes with no success. Then I discovered that for some unknown reason, when windows upgraded to 1709, it had reset my workgroup name back to “workgroup”. I changed it back to the correct workgroup name for my network and it started working again. On a side note, I also found that windows turns off system restore if you had previously turned that on during the upgrade. Why the heck MS plants all these minefields out there is beyond me. In any case, I’m glad to get the WDTV back working with my network.

Sorry Damian, I explain my solution in spanish my language, then the translation:
Prueba lo siguiente, a mi me solucionó el problema:
1 Ejecuta Netplwiz.exe, donde aparecerá el nombre de usuario con el que ingresamos.
2 Click en el tab Opciones avanzadas/Opciones avanzadas donde abrirá otra ventana con Usuarios y Grupos Locales.
3 Click en Usuarios, en la ventana central aparecerá el nombre de usuario, ESE ES EL USUARIO A COLOCAR EN WD TV LIVE, NO EL NOMBRE COMPLETO, LA CONTRASEÑA ES LA UTILIZADA PARA ENTRAR A LA PC CON LA CUENTA MICROSOFT.
Listo, eso solucionó el problema, al menos en mi caso.
Saludos y SUERTE!

Try the following, it solved the problem for me:
1 Run Netplwiz.exe, where the username will appear with which we entered.
2 Click on the tab Advanced Options / Advanced Options where you will open another window with Users and Local Groups or similar in english.
3 Click on Users, the user name will appear in the central window, THIS IS THE USER TO PLACE ON WD TV LIVE, NOT THE COMPLETE NAME, THE PASSWORD IS THE USED TO ENTER THE PC WITH THE MICROSOFT ACCOUNT.

Done, that solved the problem, at least in my case.

Regards and good luck!
