I just acquired a WD MyBook Live Duo and have discovered that I can't see it with my OS (server 2008 R2). I tried enabling my Computer Browser, NETbios over TCP/IP v4 and SSD Discovery services only to discover I couldn't find it or point to it with iscsi like you can with any other SAN device. None of the other WD software seems to find it either and I've installed the SED driver. My next step is to try putty to SSH but I have no experience with this. Can someone point me to a guide where I can use Server 2008 R2 to talk to this device? Do all the MyBook Live devices use the IP address?

I think you're confusing two people (and two images). Matt's one was 9.7 GB, whereas Teinturman is the one who made available an image of 650 MB, for which he charges 10 euros.
Anyway, unless you can't spare the money or you are a hobbyist who likes the challenge to turn an underdevloped system into something wonderful, DON't BOTHER. This NAS is one of the most unreliable you will ever find. It's slow, hot, faulty firmware etcetera. Buy a synology Disk Station, or any other brand NAS, if you want data to be safe and like devoting your time to getting things done.
The WD MBWE is a waste of space and time. I've tried for three years to optimize it, and didn't get anywhere. It was a nice toy to get to know the idea behind a NAS, but I'm now going to use some mature product.


I have symptoms where the machine is on but loses LAN connection after a few days, except it doesn't even respond to ping. Perhaps the ethernet jack shuts down to save power? Here are two tricks I have used to maintain uptime:

Running WD Anywhere Backup.
Mounting the device through sshfs from another linux box.

Oh and for the record, the power supply for my oldest MyBookWorld white light is dying (under-volt). The supply was causing the MBW to reboot while in heavy use.

Could someone help me adding a new cronjob?
I've inserted a script in folder /etc/cron.hourly, but it isn't running.
I've also tried to create a new cronjob with crontab -e, but didn't run either.
Is not a problem with the .sh file, it runs fine when I execute the command ./

Here's the crontab commands I've tried:

*/15 * * * * /usr/
*/15 * * * root /usr/

Anyone want a white Bricked Book PM me - Free just cover post cost - or Collect NG95HU

half way down first page Matt01 says this - there is a link between the two sentences -

As many of you may know I havent been replying to pms requesting images, so please use the program linked below and if it still doesnt work please then send me a pm requesting files.

highlevelbits. free. fr /index. php?option=com_content&view=category&layout=blog&id=61&Itemid=78&lang=en

I will add the thread page to my url list which hopefully will lure me back to wikidot at least once a week to view pms.

So you need to visit this link - I did and found the tools and software are now only available if you
give Matt01 a donation of 10 Euro (Cheap if you get all your data back and a working WD again)

Think I will chuck my WD book away given up on it in truth

i have a mybook world edition white light but when i click on th media bit it just goes to a blank web page saying (my ip address)/9000 not found

i dont think i have twonkey installed at all

i tried to use putty and follow the upgrade to twonkey 7 but i put in the wget and it says wget not found

any suggestions on either how to get the orginal twonkey 5 back that is suppose to be with the orginal firmware or how to get the wget to work

thanks in advance

I don't think it would be possible
The two nas lines are built on different cpu architectures, and the software is compiled for those different cpu types.

Did you get this working? I have the same issue.

I tried an

apt-get update

and fixed some unmet dependencies and the whole thing uninstalled itself (apt included).


Hi ya'all,

I was wondering if there is a way to cheat the firmware upgrade into thinking MyBookLive is MyCloud and by thus getting the extra functionality that comes with the MyCloud firmware?
Is this path worth investigation?

My CurrentFirmwareDesc : "MyBookLive " "02.43.03-022" "Core F/W" "1379357529" "1381531702"

Cheat MyBookLive into MyCloud by UrrUrr, 06 Nov 2014 10:18

Hi everyone,
I know this thread is a bit old but I wanted to ask if anyone still has the mybook white light unbrick tool. The one that would rewrite the 3 system partitions and keep the data one intact. The previous links are all dead and I just bricked my mybook. I believe it's a 650mb file that was mentioned on the first page of this thread. I would be extremely grateful for any information on where to get the software.

Thank you very much in advance.

Hey i just want to go back to my original Firmware …Can i roll back ? or install and older version and if so where can i find an older version or i have located gpl source can that used and if so how? the new firmware has changed my system i get the Error message Parameter is incorrect when i click on files inside the Mybook live …Any suggestions would help

Hi Bion04,

I had the same problem. This is how i solved the problem:

dpkg -i —force-all /var/cache/apt/archives/libc-bin_2.13-38+deb7u6_powerpc.deb
dpkg -i —force-all /var/cache/apt/archives/libc6_2.13-38+deb7u6_powerpc.deb

apt-get -f install libvorbis-dev
apt-get -f install libflac-dev
apt-get -f install libogg-dev
apt-get -f install libid3tag0-dev
apt-get -f install libexif-dev
apt-get -f install libjpeg62-dev
apt-get -f install libsqlite3-dev

To fix the "make" issue: sudo apt-get install make

Good luck

Sorted why it failed.

I should have specified the path correctly.

This works

sudo mount -t nfs Test/
