Information above relates only to the Mybook Blue Ring edition , do not apply on other model :


The Mybook Feature Manager needs the original PUBLIC shared folder on your Mybook.
Please recreate this folder and give permissions to all users to it if you have deleted this SHARE.

Check that your Mybook is ready for the upgrade :
1) launch internet Explorer on your Windows XP/Vista computer ( please start from a fresh internet explorer by closing all IE and launching a single new one.)
2) Copy paste the following url by changing <MYBOOK> with your Mybook IP Address :


where <Mybook> is the ip address of your Mybook. ( probably something like 192.168.X.X )
You will be redirected to the Western Digital "Shared Storage Manager" interface :

Click the button "Click to Download and install" then Wait without touching the interface
wait a few seconds ( typically 30 seconds) :

the following message is displayed :


CLOSE the Shared Storage Manager Internet Explorer.

Connect to your PUBLIC share and open the log file \\<Mybook>\PUBLIC\MBWE-Get-In-test.log
This file should contain " Congratulation : Firmware upgrade test is successfull ! ! ! "

it is very easy :

(give a good name like "MyFeaturePack")
create a script into this folder "start.sh" or any other name you want.
if you want to have a beautifull picture, put a "_.jpg" picture into the folder.
