Can't find mybook live I had WD mybook live for almost 4 years, never had an issue. I replaced my phone recently and obviously had to do the initial set up again. I usually connect to my book live with admin credentials so I don't have to generate the passcode from WD dashboard to access trough the app. This time, the app would not detect my WD mybook live Never had this issue before. We are on the same network. I can access my device from a different app WD My cloud, from my computer, TV, XBox, etc, but NOT from WD Photos.
0 photos!! My Samsung Galaxy Note 4 with Android Lollipop system has problem to open and view photo. The photo cannot display at the end show Internet Connection Problem. Preview in thumbmail has no issue. So far my iPad has no issue at same location and same wifi modem.
Flakey and unreliable Terrible application. It has well known issues with the transcoder, which means it can take weeks to fully mirror the cloud storage itself. Despite endless forums talking about this, no fix seems to be made available If you ever want to move files around or remove them, the app rarely reflects reality of what has happened on the drive Almost unusable.
WD has a great HD but this app which controls the sync and viewing is extremely poor and disappointing. For example, there is no confirmation that ALL of the Phone's pictures and videos have been copied to the personal cloud (networked WD HD). A quick fix is to provide an indicator next to the phone's picture or video confirming it was sync'd/copied to the cloid/hard drive. Secondly, and this is really strange, you cannot view videos from the cloud/HD on the phone. Why would WD put out an incomplete app?
I can see my photos..when it's working I like the promise of the app but it gets really frustrating when I have to disconnect and reconnect the drive EVERY time pictures get uploaded because the folders never update automatically in the app. [1/19/16 -- Still having issues. Let the app go after uploading multiple pictures over several days and the app still does not refresh itself to see the newest pictures. FIX IT PLEASE!!!]
Unusable All data are placed in the Public share. No privacy because all users are able to see each other users data. There's a nice little Linux on the MyBookLive but this slow App's developer seam to know nothing about multiuser platforms. Good luck for the next try!
