Hello! My name is***** tell me which Windows version you are using. Also, are you having problems accessing only one particular network shared folder, or you are unable to access all of them (if there are more)? Let me know,IT Miro
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Windows 8.1; cant access any of the shared folders. They are stored on the WD MyBookLive
Expert:  IT Miro replied 1 year ago.
OK. Are you trying to access the shared folders for the first time, or it has worked before, but now stopped working and asking you for username and password?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
was working before, but now stopped and asking for username and password
Expert:  IT Miro replied 1 year ago.
In that case, you need to access the WD MyBookLive control panel and review the accounts there. It is possible that something has changed.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
i dont think so, i just have one user set up on the WD MyBookLive, tried using that login but no joy
Expert:  IT Miro replied 1 year ago.
Please change the password ***** that user, or create a new user and try with that one.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
yea tried creating new user on WD and giving it same share access, but no joy either
Expert:  IT Miro replied 1 year ago.
