Hello all,

My original HDD is dead (no spin),

I sadly cannot use the rescue approach.

I do have a new (blank) HDD, I would like to install a clean OS to it.

Does anyone have a link to the
original "WD_MYBOOK_WE_500GB_IMA.7z (57MiB) " Link?
and SDA3_IMA.BZ2 ?

All the links I am finding are dead…
rapidshare. com / files/ 60953400 / WD_MYBOOK_WE_500GB_IMA. 7z

from post mybookworld . wikidot . com / upgrade - 500gb - blue - ring - to - 1 - 5tb - wd15ears

Thanks in advance.

Hello all,

I too need some help.

My blue ring WD disk 500 is dead :(

I do have another 500GB disk available to replace the HDD.

Can some one please give me a link to the rescue files.

The links below are dead
szabados. sk / mybook_we_rescue.zip
rapidshare. com / files/65242458/ mybook_we_rescue.zip

I do have one question, does it have to be a 500GB or can I upgrade it to a 1TB (blue rings model)

Thank you in advance…

Just want to thanks you guys after 10 years!

I just get this MyBookWorld white light edition from my office.
I changed DD with Blue One WD30EZRZ! it works like a charm!

Twonky server is OutDated so I disabled it with
chmod 000 /etc/init.d/S97twonkyserver

And then I delete Public Folder with rm -rf Public

Hi!
nothing needs to be disassembled if there was a ssh.
install Winscp, go along the path /proto/SxM_webui/admin/config.xml (this file is usually "0"), transfer it. edit it by typing what was said earlier. And that’s all!

Re: Default webserver error by praded2007praded2007, 22 Apr 2020 06:09

Hello,

I have the same problem. My 500GDD is defect and the old WD myBook blue rings doesn't boot.
Tested the HDD with Disk Genius connected to USB interface at a PC.
Some tracks can't read or find some tracks.

I think i can rebuild the SW at a new HDD if i have the images. I am looking al a few months to get the images so if you can help me with this issue i would be very glad.

Thanks in advance,
Geert

I finnaly found the solution :)

Maybe it could be useful to someone else so this is how I did it.

Stop the service lltd (lld2d)

In SSH (login: root, password: welc0me)
/etc/init.d/S9lltd stop

Hi community, i need your help, my MBWE never goes to sleep mode.

I have been looking for a while but without success.
A member on this forum says to stop the MiniHTTP-Server but without explain how.

In the System logs:

Never sleep mode by Francois20200Francois20200, 11 Apr 2020 18:52

Hello everyone,

I recently upgraded townky to version 8.5.1 on my WD MyCloud and now I realized that the upgraded version is only a 30 day trial??? Is there any way I can revert? or does anyone know how to over write the license?

is any one live on this forum ? all links are dead is any way to get those images back ? RAID1_MBWE2_500GB_HDDA.7z ???
long time ago one of my hdd in raid has die and I just took other one and format and start using and left empty case now I got spare hdd's and I would like to make that case work again but all links are dead long time ago ……

Just some help how I sucessfully lanched a scan over the data disk (unmounting it was not possible on all mount mount points)

Edit the fstab

vi /etc/fstab

adding the action to mount /dev/sd4 to specify "2" at the end forcing scan to be performed

/dev/sda4 /DataVolume ext4 rw,noatime,nodiratime 0 2

that makes the file look like that

proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0

## found that Access DLNA can sometimes temporarily use up to 70M of the /tmp space
## increasing to 100M maximum
tmpfs /tmp tmpfs rw,size=100M 0 0

/dev/md1 / ext3 defaults,noatime,nodiratime,barrier=1 0 0
/dev/sda4 /DataVolume ext4 rw,noatime,nodiratime 0 2

then force scan on next reboot for this drive

sudo tune2fs -c 1 /dev/sda4

device took some minutes to restart (good sign)… and… no more warning in dmesg

md: running: <sda2><sda1>

# tune2fs -l /dev/sda4 | grep checked

Done !
don't forget to remove fstab entry to get NAS working normally with data partition mounted, and put back the instruction to not do at every reboot a new scan

#sudo tune2fs -c -1 /dev/sda4

dmesg now looks even better :-)

Ok, I've read the entire forum (at least the My book live section), without finding help regarding how to scan and repair filesystem,
but now I know that I had to look at "sda4" partition, and not stop at the "md1"… so far so good I finally suceed to force disk scan and repair at reboot,
and get rid of the error message in logs advising to launch a e2fsck…

and … that did not solved anithing my drive is still very slow, in fact compared with another WD I have it is 4 times slowler, and that correspond to data transfer I have in windows (arround 4MO/s compared to 16)

but in fact a simple

# hdparm -tT /dev/sda

shall had been sufficient to detect an hardware problem:

/dev/sda:
 Timing cached reads:   556 MB in  2.01 seconds = 277.15 MB/sec
 Timing buffered disk reads: 134 MB in  3.05 seconds =  43.87 MB/sec

compared to other WD NAS

/dev/sda:
 Timing cached reads:   514 MB in  2.01 seconds = 256.34 MB/sec
 Timing buffered disk reads: 366 MB in  3.02 seconds = 121.31 MB/sec

or the brand new runing on Android (WD HOME)

/dev/block/sataa22:
Timing buffer-cache reads:   762 MB in 0.51 seconds = 1528199 kB/s (1 528.20 MB/sec)
Timing buffered disk reads:  530 MB in 3.00 seconds = 180738 kB/s (180.74 MB/s)

But I just launched a new test 1 hour later and…

/dev/sda4:
 Timing cached reads:   628 MB in  2.00 seconds = 313.84 MB/sec
 Timing buffered disk reads: 302 MB in  3.00 seconds = 100.52 MB/sec

So I don't understand.

Now disk is back to verry low 3MB/s … I started to move all data away just in case… will take time !

Yes, I tested the CPU, 50%, normal

and also monitored with iftop, same bandwith as shown using rsync.

Have you solved your issue?

I have the same issue, look at dmesg logs you may need as me to repair the drive (look at my post of today)

I’m stuck i think drive must be removed to do a fsck scan

Hi guys, sorry if this topic has allready been adressed, sure it is, but not found any help nowhere.

I spent 6 hours to identify why network files transferts were extremly slow (4Mb/s max),
and discovered with a local "rsync" test that it was not the network the problem…

then I took a look at dmeg logs and found "advices" to do a "fsck" to the disk,
what I think I suceed, but maybe not on the good one, because I still have the same message in the logs.

is there a known way to perform a disk cleaning (i think that some hard reboots put some trouble in some disk files….)

I followed online tuto linuxuprising —> how-to-force-fsck-filesystem

to do and verify that fscl had been performed on /dev/md1 with sucess.

Last checked:             Tue Apr  7 02:33:23 2020

but maybe check has been done but without repair ?
I have to put the disk out and do that from another linux system ?

here is my dmesg…

if someone know how to solve this small issue…
Will be very welcome !
thanks

help with slow drive ? by Karl HolisterKarl Holister, 07 Apr 2020 01:12

Thanks for the script, however, I've notice that the script doesn't allow the disk to enter into sleep mode making the MBWE II fan to go from 0 (stopped) to 50 (quite noisy) every 5 to 10 minutes.
I end up writing my own script that seems to be able to run into memory, not needing the disk to run, and now the noise stopped :-D

#!/bin/sh
# An alternative temperature monitoring and fan control script for 
# WD MyBook World Edition external hard drives
#
# Copyright (C) 2020 by alexreche at gmail.com
# 
# When the temperature of the disk(s) drop below TEMP_LIMIT_0, the fan speed is set to 0
# When the temperature of the disk(s) is between the limits, the fan speed is set to 50
# When the temperature of the disk(s) is above TEMP_LIMIT_50, the fan speed is set to 100
TEMP_LIMIT_0=45 
TEMP_LIMIT_50=60

while :
do
    temp=$((smartctl -d ata -A /dev/sdb && smartctl -d ata -A /dev/sda) | grep Temp | cut -c 88-90 | paste -sd '+' -)
    echo $((($temp-2*$TEMP_LIMIT_0) * ($TEMP_LIMIT_50 - $TEMP_LIMIT_0) / 2)) > /sys/devices/platform/wdc-fan/speed
    sleep 10
