THX, now is OK :) I installed latest version Twonky 8.3 :)

But I have new problem … when I connect to MBWII from browser (IE, Fiefox, Opera, etc) after 3-4 second MB is missing in my LAN. I must restart my router.
When I log on to MBWII from Total Commander (FTP) or Explorer (samba) all is OK. But, when I connect from browser connection is break … :(

To open file for explorer on your computer
to select the folder for contain file the data you want to move.
Now we highlights the data you swant to copy and that's file paste
to next navigate to the drive you want drive paste the data to click on open folder to right side.

I have problem with upgrade to Twonky 8.2.1 in My Book World Edition II. I login to MBWII and paste :

2) Get a script to install Optware : "wget …. mybookworld. wikidot. com/local—files/optware/"
(sorry, I cant paste full link because I am new on this forum)

I have message:

=> ‘’
Resolving… failed: Temporary failure in name resolution.

Please help me …

Sorry for my very late response.

Thanks for your feedback, I enjoy my tutorial still help after 4 years :)

For my point of view for the wake problem, I use cover for movies.

For example I have a movie.mkv and movie.jpg

When connect the first time, NAS is sleeping, but it will wake up when try to display the cover, maybe the 3/4 first file will not display but it will wake up the HDD, this is my way to "resolve" this issue.

Is your system still working? Adding the extras can make your system un-stable due to a few of the extras bugs not fixed.

The developer stopped working on extras a year ago. So if your system is still working and you want more features go to
MBWE Featurepacks
and use the featurepacks.

The extras were a good idea, but not currently developed. Use the featurepacks that are available and check out my updates at source forge
MBWE Scripts

Let me know how it goes.

there are instructions somewhere on this forum how to turn off MioNet.

you should look at this site for remote access.

Ok !

I downloaded the modified firmware and try it on 1 of my MBWE. The update stoped at 29-30% and no "Extra" icon appeared …
I think that the firmware is not good … :(

Any idea ?

I'm a french user not very familiar with english speaking and Linux which have 2 MBWE white light 1To (1 disk) at home.
I have a DLINK DNS320L too, which have a Raid 1 capability.

I just want to create an internet access for file sharing through FTP, but Mionet is not "a cup of tea" for me ! ^^
I visit MBWE-Extras web site ( h t t p s : / / github. com/MBWE-Extras/Downloads/blob/master/, but don't see a package for an FTP server.
I see a No-IP package that seems to interest me …
Is there a package to uninstall the Mionet functionality ?

If I download and install the MBWE-Extras firmware and don't find a way to do what I want, can I go back with the original firmware 01.02.14 ?

P.S. : thanks for this share !

Hi Teinturman,

I tried your script, which could actually do what I need, however, while it works well when invoked from the shell (/etc/init.d/S15wdc-heat-monitor start), it does not work when left to run after startup. It is almost as if the first time it is run it sets the fan at the correct speed, but after, even if present in the task list when I invoke ps aux, it does not run anymore, because the fan does not change its speed with the drive temperature. I cannot understand why, can you enligthen me?


Hi, I am having the same problem. Did you ever figure that out?

I was trying to achieve this with no luck yet. There is no direct rsync ssh access to ACD and the tools that I could find to run in linux requires either a python version I cannot make to work in WD live duo or a go implementation but compiling it for ppc32 is a pain and still couldn't solve it.

Has anyone managed to do this?

Yes you do want the disk running all the time. It's the stopping and starting of the disk which wears out the disk and makes it fail sooner. The only advantage of the disk sleeping is that it produces less heat - but you can fix that with a 80mm USB powered fan underneath the MBL.

Try here: My MBWE stuff
So let me know it it works for you.

See link below:


There is one more issue.
If you've never updated the firmware the folder /var/upgrade does not exist.

So in the script bellow you have to check if that folder exists and then to run the unpack

  1. execute the file - it unpacks itself to /var/upgrade

<IF NOT EXIST CREATE THE FOLDER /var/upgrade similar as in the begining>


GUIDE 1) For those wanting to replace the script so the script will run by simply pressing the reset buton

1) Download from
2) Download the latest firmware from

3) Download 7zip from

4) Install 7zip and point it to the MyBookLive firmware “apnc-023205-046-20120910.deb” and double click and you will see “data.tar” where you will again double click and be presented with a “.” Double click the “.” then double click “cache volume” then double click “upgrade” and then highlight “rootfs.img” and hit extract

5) Copy rootfs.img to the root of your Public folder on the MyBookLive

6) Unzip from the zip file downloaded in step 1

7) Windows users download WinSCP from
7a) Mac users download CyberDuck from

8) Enable SSH access on your MyBookLive by going to

9) Windows users start WinSCP and enter the login info…Host: mybooklive Username: root Password: welc0me
9a) Mac users start CyberDuck to login to the MyBookLive using SFTP Host: mybooklive Username: root Password: welc0me Port: 22

10) Browse to /usr/local/sbin and copy from the MyBookLive to your computer so you have a backup

11) Copy that you unzipped in step 6 to /usr/local/sbin and when asked, overwrite the existing file

12) To execute the script press and hold the reset button on the MyBookLive for 5-6 seconds or until the LED starts blinking red

13) The LED will blink red while the script is restoring a fresh copy of the firmware to your MyBookLive

14) After several minutes, the drive should reboot and when you get to a solid green LED, access the dashboard and you should be asked to choose your language like you would if the drive was brand new

15) If your shares disappeared on the MyBookLive, fear not, the data is still there and you just need to recreate the shares under the dashboard again and all your data will be there

16) Please note, you will need to overwrite at /usr/local/sbin any time you restore or downgrade the firmware on the drive as it will overwrite the modified script file
