Hi everyone, I’m hoping someone can help me out with a fairly frustrating issue that I’m having with these WD My Book World Edition II hard drives.
I have 3 WD MBWE II’s that I connect to my router (D-Link DIR-655) via network cables, which are all detected by the router and identified properly as three separate drives via their MAC addresses. However, Windows 7 or Vista (both x64) can only detect 1 of the 3 drives (whichever of the three drives is connected first). The drive appears in the Network as “MYBOOKWORLD,” regardless of which drive I connect to the routher or even if I connect the drive to my PC directly.
The WD Discovery Software failed to detect any of the drives even when Windows was detecting one of htem.
Can anyone suggest how I can ensure that all three drives are detected properly and under different names?
