Bought a My Book World Edition 1TB external hard drive on the weekend. The documentation that comes with it is a little scant. Basically they say you plug it in to your network and assume you can immediately see it on the network. Did that but can't see it. I'm not sure if it needs a DHCP server for an IP address, or if it's default IP is a static one like some routers. Seems to have a web interface where you point your browser (from a computer on the same network) to http://mybookworld or something like that. Did that but didn't resolve the name. I'd normally use the IP address, but don't know what it is.
I've been doing some searches, and it seems it has a small embedded linux OS on it, and there are a few sites for hacks to customise it. But I can't find anywhere how to get it's IP.
I did a scan of my network's IP addresses from 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.0.254 and it didn't show up there anywhere. I don't know if it is supposed to have a SAMBA share, and if so if the workgroup is "workgroup", "mshome" or what. My network's workgroup name is something else.
Any pointers in the right direction?
