Hi from France,

Just unburrying this thread from 1 year back to add somewhat usefull details^^

I rebuilt my WBL (1 disk) from a dead HD with debrick.sh . Upgraded Twonky to 8.3 following your guide, Twonky works fine, thank you !

However, GUI from WBL UI was broken and i made changes to many scripts DLNA files in /usr/local/sbin (basically, because i cant' find out why twonky doesn't create /tmp/twonky_server with IP:PORT inside)

# TWONKY_IP="`cat /tmp/twonky_server`"
TWONKY_IP="127.0.0.1:9000"

also made some changes in share-param.sh (same location) for twonky_dir and in awk line of getDlnaServerConnectedList.sh for new lines in TwonkyIP:9000/rpc/info_connected_clients answer

# JUST THE AWK COMMAND HERE vvvv

awk '
BEGIN { 
    FS = "\n"; RS = "##########\n";
    getline info < "/tmp/info_clients"
    split(info, info_arr, ",")
    for ( item in info_arr ) info_count++;
}
{
    id = $2;
    mac = $3;
    ip = $4;
    if ( $6 == 1 )
        enable = "enable";
    else
        enable = "disable";

    friendly_name = $7;
    for (i = 1; i <= info_count; i=i+2) {
        if (info_arr[i] == id) {
            desc = info_arr[i+1];
            break;
        }
    }
    printf("\"%s\" \"%s\" \"%s\" \"%s\" \"%s\"\n", mac, ip, friendly_name, desc, enable);
}

' /tmp/info_connected_clients

It was just some garbage tech infos, if someone can find why twonky doesn't create /tmp/twonky_server, this can help.

Thanks !

Hi all!

I am trying to revive my old MBWE white lights with this script but having no joy. Script runs it course with these 3 identical warnings:

Warning: The resulting partition is not properly aligned for best performance:

When I place the drive back in the housing the bottom LED comes on and stays on.

Anyone else encountered this, have you found a solution?

Cheers!

A little background:

I bought this WD NAS over ten years ago and it has ran fine up until about six weeks ago
when it died. Windows 7 just no longer sees the mapped out drives in My Computer. There
were no sounds coming from the spinning drives just nothing. So I decided it was a WD
enclosure problem and not a hard drive problem. So I pulled the hard drives from their
enclosure and connected one of them to a “USB to SATA Adapter”, then plugged it into my
computer. The computer made a sound of a USB device being plugged in, but nothing
showed up in My Computer window. My conclusion is that I would have to look elsewhere
for my answer if I wanted my data back.

So I started my research on the internet, and found there are a lot of people with the
same problem and no support or fix from WD to correct it. I found that some people had
success with Linux. I have an older DELL laptop laying around so I loaded Linux Mint 20
“Ulyana” – Cinnamon (64-bit) on to this older DELL. I can at least see the drive now in
the My Computer window but can’t get into it. When I try, I get the error message “Unable
to mount location”.

In the past six weeks I have read and tried countless internet posts, most of them have
been Terminal Window stuff without any success. I know there is a solution out there, I
just need someone’s help to find it.

If you are willing to take on this challenge, you will find that I’m highly motivated to
retrieve my data. I promise to check this forum every day and try your suggested key
strokes and post results.

Shown below are two looks at both drives “Disks” & "sudo fdisk -l". I’m hoping that if
someone is willing to help me this will be useful to you.

Thank You in Advance

Hello: netvizier

If you would like to read more background of my problem I'm facing please look in section 3 for "TSQMAN-1" on this forum.

I have tested your posting and the results are shown below do you anymore suggestions?

QUESTION for you: It looks like it had a problem with STEP #5 & STEP #7, where does the "/dev/md4" come from?

Thank You in Advance

Re: plea for amule binaries by CoronasCoronas, 05 Mar 2021 14:32

Hi all.
I am trying to swap my MBWE I hdd for a bigger one.
Following the steps in this guide i got stuck at downloading mbwe.tar.gz script, because the site iknowsomething.com is down (forwarding to random commercials)
Is there any place where I can find the same script ?

Thanks in advance!

Доброго времени суток!
Имею на руках железку MBWE light white 1 (1.5tb) Работал верой и правдой с самого начала и в один момент посыпался хард было решено его заменить за одно и чуть увеличить так как официально грины больше не продают а обьеденили их с линейкой блю был куплен винт на 2гб сата6ггб далее запустил линукс с флешки 20.10 отредоктировал файл конфиг сш и запустил прошивку все встало в логах тоже показывает что все ок комплит и тд. быстренько собрал железку подрубил к сетке и питанию и вот тут и началось. диод горит постоянно в нижнем положении даже не дергается а на сетевом порту горит только один диод зеленый а не два как должно быть и нет доступа к железке по сети ЧТО ДЕЛАТЬ в каком напровлении копать? может кто подскажет хоть железка и старая уже. да в конфиге мак адрес менял!

I make same mistake.

root shell is /bin/bash in /etc/passwd

and bash is installed /opt/bin/bash… so icannot login root account, sudo not working…

mayby i can take WD MyBook WorldEditiion II White Light HDD out, and mount partitions PC (Linux?), and edit /etc/passwd file?

Ups,

I setup wrong shell for root user.

Default is /bin/sh, and i want switch this to bash, installed bash but write /etc/passwd file:

root:… .. …/root:/bin/bash

Right shell line: /opt/bin/bash no i cannot login root, and sudoers not set, what i can do?

i see backup file: /etc/passwd~ and there is working /bin/sh shell, can i restore this?

How i can edit /etc/passwd file WITHOUT root access ?

Or how i can setup ssh access again, if this is set root password and shell to default ?

HELP ME PLEASE!

Can i take HDD out and mount partition another pc and edit file?

WD MyBook World Edition (WhiteLight) 1tb

uname -a
Linux WD 2.6.24.4 #1 Thu Apr 1 16:43:58 CST 2010 armv5tejl unknown

cat /etc/model
WWLXN

or can i edit some startup files, and write these skript which restore my passwd~ to passwd

startupfiles like:

/etc/init.d/SxxAddBackupToPasswd.php.

Hello everyone, thank you for taking the time to read this. A recent electrical storm and a series of power surges made our Western Digital NAS nic no longer work. This has been an extremely valuable forum for helping others that have had similar problems.

I'm actually not really sure where to begin because I have tried so many different things already. The model number of my drive is WD10000H1NC-00. The partition I am trying to mount in Ubuntu is raid and has xfl file system. I have confirmed this by using the gparted app.

When trying to mount the partition, I get this error message: "mount: /media/mount: /dev/sdb4 already mounted or mount point busy."

Could someone please help us, we appreciate all help we can get.

Hi,
so does highlevelbits still exist?
Is the featurepack available online? (I have installed setup-whitelight.sh but want tp check a few things e.g. can't remember what sort_dirname.tar.gz is for.

Also - is there a featurepack / ipkg for MyCloud?

thx

It's been eons since this thread was posted to. Alas, reading the .sh script it looks as if a new drive can be formatted with it. Am I wrong in this assumption? Currently I have only time and no access to equipment to test. At home I have a DUO that the two disks (CAVIAR GREEN (SMH)) are unresponsive in totality. I'd love to slide two new disks of the same size in the enclosure and be done with it. I've been reading up on this site to address MY BOOK DUO issues and this post seems like the ticket to SUCCESS!!!

Hi,
I just bought a 6 TB (2 x 3 TB) WD My Book Duo and I installed the WD Security, WD Drive utilities software. Everything works fine because the disk is recognized and I can write to the disk. I then wanted to protect the access to the disk with a password and I used WD Security to set a password. When I stop the WD My Book DUo, I unplug it from my PC, and plug it back in, the access to the disk is locked before password but when I write the password I just chose, WD Security displays the following error message: invalid password.
I tried to erase everything on the disk with WD Drive Utilities, reformat the disk and redefine a new password to pass, I still have the same error message and unable to access to my disk WD My Book Duo.

PS: my PC is on Windows 10

Thanks a lot for your help.
Thierry,

You can use the wayback machine. Thats how I got most files. there is also someone who added all files to a git hub type site.

New Site that was done by someone. It has an extras setup. That was never finished, but is nice start. It lets you merge logins and lets you switch between standard menu and feature packs menu without messing with login.

Do a search for MBWE Extras in google. I cant post links.

All Feature Pack files

Do a search for mbwescripts on sourceforge.

I backed my folder up before clean installing. You just need the registered file.
On setup, you install feature pack, then overwrite folder with backup, all works fine.

Hello, have you tried to reactivate with the code you received the first time ?


MyBook Live 2T + FeaturePacks - MyBook World Edition (white light) 1T + Registered FeaturePacks - QNAP TS259 Pro+ 2T QTS 4.2

I still have the script and just uploaded it to Google Drive. Please write me a PM as I'm not allowed to share the link here.

I was having difficulty with Twonky version that shipped with MyBookLive - purchased and upgraded to 8.5.1 using the guide on this forum and it works great! Thank You Dav-M ! Much appreciated. If you ever find yourself in Chicago, LMK - Martini is on me! :-)
