and after 10 years…

we can also edit the file /proto/SxM_webui/admin/inc/wixNFS.class which indirectly extends /proto/SxM_webui/admin/inc/wixBase.class.

at line 180, we can modify the default of /etc/exports

Hello, Dan

I am interested in restoring MBWE Blue rings. However I've got 2 disk version. Will it work with your files?

A playlist is based on the software you use to play the media from your NAS device. The NAS is just the storage location, use a media player that supports playlist to get what you want.

I posted a bunch of MBWE files on Sourceforge.
Check here…MBWE Sourceforge Scripts and files

Hello, i need the recovery files too. After 10 year 24/7 my hard disk has gone.

Hi all, just wondering if anyone can give advice as to how to go about creating a video playlist on the server? I have lots of videos on my 2TB drive, and rather than wasting space I wanted to organise into playlists for easier use. Any ideas how to accomplish? Thanks

Hi all !

As a summary, i ask you if it's possible to add a MQTT broker/server in Optware packages, like Mosquitto.

Thank you.

If anyone was unfortunate enough to loose thier FeaturePack. Then there is little you can do about it. Unless you can get hold of the author.
Luckly for me, I still had it on my NAS. So I found its location and tar'ed up the folder. As it includes the two reg files, I can then just extract it back to a fresh installed NAS. It appears to work fine.
Folder you need to tar is, /proto/SxM_webui/fpkmgr/

See my post below, I have the files or a WD MBWE (single disk / blue ring) in working condition

If anyone comes to these threads, and needs the files (From now dead links etc..) they can post here. I have just restored a WD MBWE (Original 1 disk Blue ring..)

I will either post the files here again if needed, or send directly to you if easier..

Alternatively if someone is not as technically inclined, I may be able to ship you a prepared WD_MBWE hard drive pre-configured to install..


Hi guys,

anyone have the recovery files please upload it for us again, all links are not working:(

I have a MBWE white with the first firmware. If I update it to the last firmware 02/01/14 can immediately install FeaturePack Manager following the instructions (1.go to timemachine) on your link - will this work?
everything is good. I did it and my boxing came to life. everything is fine at this point.

Hi guys,

Whatever I do, my windows PC, sees only 3GB partition, can you tell me what am I doing wrong? :(
I repeated steps like 50 times and always same, I see hard disk, I can access firmware but even if I make 10 folders all of them will be 3gb :(

Problem by mrkymrky, 06 Dec 2019 09:39

I got some old WD external boxes and found identifying exactly what they are a challenge. Here is what I think I have:
Part #WD2000HSU - two 3.5" bays, 1-usb 2.0 port (possibly the original MyBook Mirror)
Part #WDVBHxxxxxxx - two 3.5" bays, 1-1Gb RJ-45, 1-usb 2.0 port (possibly the MyBook Duo Live)
Part #I'll let you know - four 3.5" bays, 1-1Gb RJ-45, 2-usb 2.0 (rear), 1-usb 2.0 (front) WD Sharespace

Some ideas and observations. The Sharespace enclosure is quite nice and it occurred to me how it might house an Intel NUC or Raspberry Pi (replacing the unit mainboard). Has anyone considered using these boards on this unit with pin header cables? Now that we know how to open the MyBook boxes without destroying them, has anyone considered replacing the LAN or usb chip to increase its meager performance?

Now that my unrealistic notions have been exposed, let's get down to the practical:
I've said goodbye to Windows permanently and only run Linux distros. It would be helpful to get these up and running so can any of the boxes above be flashed to accept newer, lower power 5400rpm drives?

Hi, many thanks and all the best ;-)

I would like to share this website where I found a lot of interesting software.
There are also highlevelbits recovery tools.
I am no longer the owner of MBWEBR and I leave the community. Good luck

I bought new WD 1TB hard disk and put it in a case, what should I do in order for hard to start working?
