I have a MyBook World edition configured on my network having a static IP . It is working fine and I have even upgraded from the standard 500GB to a 1TB harddisk using the standard firmware linux images from this site. I am using it mainly as my media store and server by installing the miniARM version of TwonkyVision which enables the DLNA server on MyBookWorld.
Since my media collection is increasing I am trying to increase the storage space. I thought of plugging an additional external USB 2.0 unbranded storage box having a 100GB harddisk at the moment. It works fine as standalone and when I plug it in the USB port of MyBook , in the Storage Web Configuration Interface it correctly detected with free space. Now when I add a share for this harddisk, I give a share name, select the additional USB harddisk recognized partition, set the share as CiFS (default), and set all permissions for everyone.
The share (for the attached USB disk) is now visible under windows explorer, so I map it as a drive letter (for frequent use). But if I try to create a new folder or copy a new file on this share then comes the message for access denied (although i have given all users permission for read/write).
Secondly if I turn off the MyBook World Edition and turn it back on again then all this share configuration for the additional USB storage is all cleared and I have to redo all the share configuration. The disk is detected fine in the main configuration page but all the settings are lost.
The firmware version on MyBook World is 01.01.18.
Any practical and useful suggestions are always appreciated.
