has anyone experienced any problems with these drives, purchased two , one seems to work fine so far,

the other one

Can map to network drives, but cannot write/delete/rename

Get 'Access is Denied'



Via Shared Storage Manager
(iexplorer http://drivename)

File Sharing Tab
User Management set up a user abc123
When try to delete get:

A Serious Error has Occurred

Error Code:: f00027
User ID out of range

Please try again

Similarly when try to Update Security Settings

A Serious Error has Occurred

Error Code:: f00018
Failed to find uid in passwd file

Please try again

Have tried General Set up WD Anywhere Access Settings
And reset as recommended by WD website,
Recreate shares

Works fine for a few minutes, then same as above, can map to network drive but cannot write/delete says 'Access is Denied'

Both appear via Mionet,
Other works fine, this one 'Access is Denied' when try to move files to it

Also switching off the drive and back on again works fine for a few minutes, then a repeat of above.

its driving me mad, is it the case of taking it back to PC World?

I am having the same exact problem. I have been researching the problem with no success. Have seen some linux methods of accessing the drive but, would not know how to remedie the problem.

Have you had any luck since your last posting?

Thank you in advance.
