I think a Corrupt OS is what Im up against but tbh Im not sure
Heres what I did and where Im at
I was ripping my whole dvd collection and some family videos, some pictures to my My World Book 2 Tb network drive from 2 PC's
Also I was messing about with norton security settings, when I get an error from DVDshrink saying not enough room
I tried to access the drive on the windows network but it wouldnt so I tried holding down the button on the back to power on and off no joy
Speaking with Western Digital they told me to switch off norton or uninstall Norton that didnt work
Ive tried a pin the back to re-initialise no joy
However its still being seen by my PS3 and still streaming the media contained on it to my PS3 ????????
Its seen by my windows network . . comes up with configuration and printers . .
Comes up with
but when I click them I get the 5 second redirection page and then
XML error: no wixnas object found!
for a spell I also got
XML error: no wixnas object found! OR XML error: no wixnas object found! Warning: Unknown(): write failed: No space left on device (28) in Unknown on line 0 Warning: Unknown(): Failed to write session data (files). Please verify that the current setting of session.save_path is correct (/tmp) in Unknown on line 0
Windows Media Player on 1 computer on my network will see the Mybook (as I had already added it to the Media Library and it lists some of the files on it but when I try and play them) It hangs and loops with 'opening media' on avi's and on Video_TS it streams but theres no discrenable structure I just get a list of Video_1_2_3 etc and no way to save them !
but like I said the PS3 it streams fine
Ive had it open and connected the drive to a PC with Ubuntu run from the CD
It doesnt see the drive from Ubuntu's OS but when I go to install Ubuntu it sees the drives and lists the partitions and throws up the following info
//Free Space 31.3 MB
Unknown Linux Distribution (/dev/sda1) 1.9 Gb
swap (dev/sda2) 251.0 Mb
/dev/sda3 964.8 Mb
/dev/sda4 1.8 Tb//
Is there anyway to re-install the firmware ?
I tried using SSH using putty but I cant get to the book to install any scripts for SSH
Ive thought about using the PS3 to copy all the media on to that !
But then I cant copy that in any file structure onto the PS3 as the file structure is lost once its on the PS3
Wondered if theres a Media player out there for windows that can see my bookworld media and take the file structure and copy it along with the media file, to either a second network drive or a hard drive connected directly to the PC ???
Or is there a way under Ubuntu to delete the corrupt Linux partition ? and still access the data ?
Or delete the Linux and re-install the linux and access the data
or another OS similar to Ubuntu that can see the drive and access the data
Ive ordered a second Mybook, if the second ones fine and can be seen on the network,
Is there a way to slave the broken one to it and access the data on it via the working one via sata leads ?
