Can somebody help me?

Thank you for your reply. I tried putting pyload on S99pyload. Still nothing.The thing is that there is no S## for unrar in init.d folder. Do I really have to get it in there?

"are you using giflib-nox11 instead of giflib?" Iam sorry but I have no idea. How can I check that?'

"editied the plugins configuration by editing ~/.pyload/plugins.conf" No I have not tried it, but I think that if Unrar is loaded correctly with pyload (when I load pyload manually of course) then I don't think that there is something wrong with the plugin itself.

As you can understand I am a newbie in all this…

Me too … the link to rapidshare download doesn't work anymore !

I dont use either but will try to help you… first glance, maybe urar is not loaded yet and thus causing the error at boot time.

Lets look at your opware setup….
Check the boot order of the items in your /opt/etc/init.d list. Make sure unrar's S## is lower than the pyload S## so it wil load and be running by the time pyload initializes. Or make pyload's S## much higher….IE S22unrar and S96pyload.

Make sure that also the S## unrar is excutable…if not set correctly unrar will not start automatically.
check using

ls -l

make excitable using

chmod a+x /opt/ect/init.d/S*unrar

Now to pyload….
On headless serverslike the MyBook, are you using giflib-nox11 instead of giflib?????
Have you editied the plugins configuration by editing ~/.pyload/plugins.conf to correct the issue?
Have you tried to reload/reinstall the plugin?

I have problem with Unrar 5.0 when I load pyload. When pyload is loaded on boot then Unrar is not loaded (line 168):

Can someone explain this conundrum please?

Thanks a lot for the detailed instruction.
Unfortunately, it didnt work out the way I wanter and I really need help.
I ran all instructions at once and a problem occurred at one point.
I started downloading the newer version but it didn't work. At the same time, the 5 version was moved to the folder twonky5old, and the newer version didn't install. I cant restart the twonky as it say that no file is found. When I try to download the 7 version to the /etc/local/twonky folder, it says "no space left on the device".
Chmod to 777 didn't help. There is a lot of space available.
Is there any way I can proceed to update or reverse the old 5 version?
I am using putty for this, device WD MY BOOK LIVE.
I do hope you can help me!!!! Thanks a lot in advance.

Good day. I have a WD My book live DUO 4TB and I followed the instructions and upgraded to version 7.0.9. The server worked for about 3 days, then somehow the harddrive dumped the server. I had to reinstall again. After the second install, it worked perfectly for about 4 days then movies starts to buffer during play. Anyone is reporting the same problem?

Also, if I wanted to install version 8.0.2, would I follow the same instructions but use the correct version number in step 5 and 6?

Do the debrick process. there is a guide on this site and there are a couple of guides on the wd site. if you follow the guide, you will not lose your data (if the drives are actually operational). In the even that you have a failed drive, then you will have to use data recovery methods to get what you can off of it. Though it seems like you don't have a failed drive, but instead have a corrupted OS. An easy fix with a debrick. In the future you should do this
so that you can 'debrick' just by hitting the reset button on the back.

I have solved it by converting the files to mp4 using handbrake. This has resulted in much smaller files which may be the reason…hard to tell. But there's no perceivable loss in quality so I'm pretty happy! Might do it to my whole collection to free up space.

I use a WD EX4 Mycloud as my main server in my house with my PC at the moment using Utorrent. I checked out Transmission, but it seems very limited, but I am aware that it can be added too.

My downloads (Movies) usually have long and weird names, and I wish to be able to rename these to a more understandable name, but retain the original for seeding purposes.

So my viewing directory on my TV would have the name I wish to see it as, ie "Exodus" but transmission would see the same files as EX.1.fredsmith.BlueDisk.720.mkv

I and wish to end up with one file with two names.

I am not a programmer, and I am retired , so looking to utilise my WD space to 1 file, instead of 2.

Can anyone help me, please?


I tried above mentioned method for my WD Live-Duo. I was able to downgrade the 2 x 2 TB RAID 1 to 2 x 1 TB RAID 1.

Process was like above mentioned. I also only extracted slightly above 12 million sectors from each 2 TB drive and write them back to the corresponding 1 TB drive.
As the WD-Live-Duo is using EXT3, I formatted the 4th partition to EXT3.

After replugging the dives I needed to do a full factory reset and the new RAID 1 config (2 x 1 TB) was stable.
I tested it by filling up the whole drive and later reread the content for verification.
Works like a charm :-D

Too bad, WD does not provide any "reformat" tool - but with above mentioned method it is no problem at all.
Another side note: I did not read/write directly from the 2 TB to the 1 TB disc, but extracted the sectors first as a file and then write it to the 1 TB. That was mainly because I was not able to attach 2 external drives to my Laptop (because I only have an old single bay Sharkoon QuickPort)


I've had this drive for just under 5 years? All of a sudden it got flaky about a week or two ago and I could only access it as a Guest. It would not allow me to login as Admin using my name and password. Can't access the dashboard, can't access the "local" address. WD saw my posts and actually contacted me a couple days ago, today I received a replacement drive from them. Sounds great, but I have a lot of graphics files on this drive that are work I've done for numerous clients. I'd like to get the data off the drive, but I'm a novice when it comes to hacking LOL. So I need some help. My primary PC is an iMac 24, its running the latest Yosemite v.10.10.3 and my network seems plenty stable, I have installed the new replacement MyCloud 2TB drive and I can see/access it fine. Comcast is my ISP and I'm using an Apple Airport Extreme 802.11 AC.

Just for information purposes, when I reset the drive with the paperclip. the front LED goes amber. It stays amber for quite a while, but sooner or later it turns blue. If I pull the power plug for 10 seconds it starts blue, then switches to amber. I don't know if that is meaningful. A friend of mine has a USB bare drive gadget where he used to put in drives in a slot, and be able to read them without a housing. Am I going to need something like that? I know he used to use it on some Seagate Barracuda drives and maybe some older IBM click of death drives. I have tried connecting the drive directly to a PC running Windows 7 and didn't achieve anything.

So do I consider this drive "Bricked" and should I try to salvage it? I need those graphics files and correspondence. Thanks in advance for any/all help and advice.


Cannot Access MyBookLive 2TB by DrGrafixDrGrafix, 18 Apr 2015 12:17

Most users have migrated over to the WD site now. Hence the answer to your question is over there

or try this

The basic idea is to reinstall the firmware, fixing all your messes in the process. I highly recommend that you go the trouble of creating this
It will save you hours of headache.

Re: Reinstall SSH via http by gunt76gunt76, 17 Apr 2015 15:00

I have had this before. SSH got corrupted while updating my device to get GCC/make to work. Last time, a couple of years ago, on another WD Live single drive I managed to get hold of an update package that re-installs SSH via the update screen on the WDDRIVE's web page. Very useful indeed.

But I do not know what I did with the file! I have googled around for it, and does not seems to even be mentioned here. But I know it exists and works.

Where can I get it from?

SSH reinstall deb

Thanks, Gerry

What I`m doing wrong…

When i receverd MBL from warrenty clame I done downgrade of firmware to 2.32.05-046. After downgrade I install twonky server 8,0.2 (i have licence) but when i restart MBL i have twonky 5 with was at firmware. To start Twonky 8 i need to use putty and twonky stop; twonky start and i have twonky 8.

How to repare those issu.

I want to have townky 8 like default settings.

The files all seem to be dead links because of rapidshare going down can anyone post these to dropbox or something similar? I need the 500GB restore files and clone image badly. I can also host the files on my webserver for everyone after someone gives me them. Thanks!
