Solved WD My Book World Edition NAS not showing up on my PC

Creative D100 2.0 speaker system - black
April 5, 2013 at 13:40:12
Specs: Windows 8 64Bit, i5 , 8GB
I have a WD Mybookworld network drive connected directly to my computer but it is not showing up under "Network" in explorer for some reason.

I know it is working properly because I can manually type in \\mybookworld it will show up but once i close that window it's gone again.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Your NAS should be attached to your router.

Is that the only way this would work?

✔ Best Answer
No this is not the only way, but it is the right way.

Other then that, you will have to set a static IP address on your NAS and a static IP on your computer that have the same gateway and domain.

You can also try to set up an ad hoc network with your win8
