I don’t have the World Book but have the Shared Storage rather. But from looking at the pics of the interface (web GUI), it is near identical.
Here is what I managed to come up with as far as LED codes.
Which by the way is the same manual for the original World Book.
One thing I am certain of is the if the unit is not booting up completely, you cannot reset or power off the unit.
At least this was the case with mine. I had to manually pull the power plug from it to shut it down.
One would think that if the drive is not booting it would throw the “Boot unsuccessful” LED.
But since I am unfamiliar with the exact unit, let’s not go to the point as it not being booted as being the problem yet.
Please explain the type of network this is hooked to. For instance router/switch model?
I presume this is hooked up straight to a router since this is the normal setup for an end user.
The solid green light you talk about is where? On the back of the unit where the ethernet cable plugs in?
With the ethernet unplugged, do you see that light then (most likely not).
So basically when you plug in the ethernet, the light turns green, but you get no actvity (orange) at all?
Just to test the actual functionality of the unit, let’s try just a normal shutdown.
Hold the power button in for at least 4 seconds and see if it shut’s itself down.
