I'm having difficulty even getting started along this route, can anyone point me in the right direction???
Bought a 2nd hand mybook world (500gb blue rings) advertised as never used, but clearly has been (annoying, but not the point).
If I put the CD in, and try to run the installation software, it just hangs, doesn't even try to install anything opens WD installer which does nothing.
So I downloaded the latest version of WD anywhere, this installed ok, but during the setup it couldn't find the mybook (I can see it in my network folder though).
Rebooted PC and mybook, but can't really work out what to do next? The install only added one thing, an option to "Start mionet". Done that a couple of times, but still no idea what is supposed to happen next? Looked on the web link and that just opens a java box which seems to load something but again just freezes. PC is a vista one.
All of this is a little pointless as I really wanted to hack it into something more to my usage. But I can't even do the get in test. Copying and pasting http://<Mybook>/auth/firmware_upgrade.pl?fwserver=users6.nofeehost.com/MybookAlternative/MBWE-Get-In-test brings up a username & password box, tried the one I set for mionet, but rejects it. I can only assume its the one set by the previous owner.
Any idea's of next steps?? Sorry if this rambles a bit
