Nighthawk X4S D7800 - ReadySHARE - 4TB Western Digital Elements WDBU6Y0040BBK-WESN

Hey,

I've been having heaps of issues with ReadySHARE and any portable HDDs I've tried. I had a 4TB Seagate Backup Plus 02R2APB-500 that was giving me issues, it was working then started corrupting my video files etc. I tried everything and eventually sold it.

 

I just bought a 4TB Western Digital Elements WDBU6Y0040BBK-WESN and it's not even being detected on my router. It's NTFS, I've restarted my PC, restarted the modem/router, changed USB ports etc.

 

Latest firmware version, V1.0.1.58.

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks

I can see the drive in USB Drive Approved Devices but not in USB Storage (Basic Settings).

So I have to disable or enable SMB 1.0?

 

I have 2 SMB options in turn on and off Windows features. SMB 1.0/CIFS File Sharing Support which has SMB 1.0/CIFS Automatic Removal, SMB 1.0/CIFS Client and SMB 1.0/CIFS Server.

 

There is also SMB Direct.

Read the pages I linked to.

 

There is a lot more like that out in Googleland. It isn't just a Netgear thing.

   At least one of us is confused.  If the router is not showing the USB
storage volume as a served volume ("Available Network Folders"?), then
who believes that the problem can be solved by playing with settings on
the Windows client system?
