I've got a WDMBWE 1 TB on firmware 02.00.18
I followed the 'First steps' on this forum.
I had the 'large file copy' and 'access' errors, which I fixed by reformatting the device via ssh using advice on this site.
I successfully transferred over 700GB of files from my windows XP machine to my MBWE.
I also tried (unsuccessfully) to install CUPS to add a server via the usb slot.
I installed mediatomb, which successfully fed my films to my PS3. I could access my MBWE from XP, Vista, Mandriva, my XBMC boxes and my Archos 605 wifi.
Then it all stopped.
I first noticed when the mediatomb web interface asked me for a password? Then I could not see the MBWE on my network anymore. Restarting does not solve the problem.
I can access the box via sftp or ssh. I am currently connected via ftp downloading my files back to my pc before I start to try and fix the issue. As you may guess, this is taking forever as I have a transfer speed of about 500kbps.
Could I fix the issue without having to back up all my data back to my PC? I think a reformat may fix it but need to be backed up to do that?
I'm no Linux guru so advice on how to tackle this would be greatly appreciated.
