After updating the firmware last night, I am not able to access any of the shares on the network drive. I can't map the shares because each time I try to remap the shares, I have to put in the password, which I never set. I basically cannot access the network drive using the Windows Explorer (get the 0x80070043 error => The network name cannot be found), I can still pretty much access the drive using dashboard

Here is what I have done before posting the question
  • restarted the drive using dashboard
  • shut down the drive and then restarted the drive using dashboard
  • restarted the computer and then tried remapping
  • changed the name of the network drive and did the three steps
BTW, I can still access the drive and pretty much do anything using the WD2GO app (stream music, open files etc.)

I am using Windows 8 x64 with media centre (was using the same OS before updating)

Before last night I was pretty much able to do evevrything I wanted with the drive

Help will be appreciated
