I have mbl 2tb and installed nzbget by following this guide:
community dot wd dot com/t/guide-install-nzbget-10-2/58374

It is downloading the nzb file but I don't know how to access /DataVolume/shares/ in pc to copy the nzb files I downloaded
Can somebody help me? I only see Public Folder in my mbl in windows explorer…

Works fine!

Anyone can arrange me the files with the partition to flash my nook WE Blue ring? The boot partition is dead!, and unfortunately I didn't make any dd from it!

Re: Restoring an old friend by rmarrmar, 10 Mar 2018 09:15


could please someone the post recovery files again?
I tested each link in this forum but no success.

thank you.

i agree. my original bad power supply it just restarted and restarted. later down the road, i also had a separate issue in which the white light was on for 30 seconds, then off for good. Only the hdd’s are spinning without access. You're thinking about starting back over from scratch, which would be my last resort. Hopefully someone will respond to you with the rescue files.

Re: Cloning gone bad by dz2kdz2k, 07 Mar 2018 16:23

I think I know what you mean. I had the same issue a while ago, and I recently had to buy a new power supply for it. It sure reminds of that behaviour, but it's a bit different. Now the disk spins up and keeps spinning, but with the bad power supply it just restarted and restarted. I'd probably need the "rescue" files to get it to the state it was as new, but all links to them are gone cold, so they are nowhere to be found.

Re: Cloning gone bad by robbe76robbe76, 07 Mar 2018 16:11

I've had the same issue before with mine, which is the white light version. I bought a replacement power cord on from upbright. I would try this first. I also want to mention the new power supply had better specs than the original and it worked out great for me. Thx.

Re: Cloning gone bad by dz2kdz2k, 07 Mar 2018 13:33

I cloned it several times with Clonezilla with various settings, and a couple of times with an old Spotmau rescue CD.
The original disc seems to have all partitions intact, it spins up normally, but it doesn't go anywhere from there. No LEDs light up.

Re: Cloning gone bad by robbe76robbe76, 04 Mar 2018 07:57

How did u clone it?

Re: Cloning gone bad by dz2kdz2k, 04 Mar 2018 01:11

U may want to replace the power supply cord. I don't see how cloning a working hdd would mess up it up.

Re: Cloning gone bad by dz2kdz2k, 04 Mar 2018 01:07

I don't know where I went wrong this time. I tried a bunch of times to clone the HDD, but never got it to work when I started up the nas. Finally, I thought I have to go with the old disk until I figure something out, but now it refuses to run with that either. I should probably make a clean install, but all the links on this forum seem to be cold nowadays. Is there any way to get it to spin, or should I just throw it in the bin?

Hello please, i search this file temperature_monitor.php because the site is clause.

Done… Worked!

Issues for me must have been the USB to SATA connection…. followed this Guide without issue once I got the drive directly connected to my PC

[GUIDE] Debrick MyBookLive v2.0 from the WD Community

Just finished updating the firmware.

Looking for suggestions on next steps, if there are even any!

I have MyBookLive 2TB which was acting up - no more dashboard access, by I could see the NAS from my Win 7 machine…. So I called WD support - absolute run around/waste of time!

Next - tried out the debricking guides/scripts.

  1. first without 'destroy' - Sorta worked, but slow and errors when I tried to update the firmware.
  2. second with destroy' - This is where it went sideways… keep getting the \dev\md0 error messages ( stop and remove )… looked into this and tried all sorts of things without luck.

I have a VM with Ubuntu 16.04 and a USB / Sata adapter ( maybe this was my issue to start with ) connected to the 2tb drive.

Knowing enough to be dangerous with Linux and lots of Googling and re-tries I am still nowhere with this drive.

It's now fully empty/ no partitions…. nothing ( I know bad move probably)…. so basically what I am trying to do is get this thing up and running again - no existing data to worry about.

Last stuff I have tried without luck are these scripts on github for the MyBookLive

Possible? Next Steps?

Hello I'm new here. My friend gave me his book world. I tried to install the FeaturePack manager following this instructions but the site is down since a moment. I want to install the feature: web_server. I hope a person here could help me.

FeaturePack Manager by NooboyNooboy, 24 Jan 2018 04:31

this is the problem I'm having, as well.

Scary moments, but I just upgraded to 8.0.2 and it still works. Not entirely straightforward, but I did it, so feeling pleased.

I think I'll leave it there and not push my luck any further!

Thanks for this excellent resource, Dav-M.


OK - not *entirely* sure how, but I've managed to get Twonky running - and it's great - tracks are served up in track, not alphabetical, order, which is what I wanted.

The script I referred to above seems to download more successfully if you are in the drive's root directory.

I can see the Twonky GUI on NAS-IP:9000 and mess around with it, including entry of the license I have bought!

Remaining question: on my MBLD's original interface, I'm pretty sure I could see, on the Settings>Media page, the option to activate/disable Twonky as well as the WD DLNA. I've read a few posts on here that suggest this is possible, but the link referred to doesn't work.

I guess it's no big deal, as long as I can get into the :9000 page, but it might be helpful to refine the process as far as it can.

I installed V7.0.9 of Twonky. If it's solved my track ordering problem, is there any point installing V8.x and if so, is it straightforward?
