Software is not required to Logon to your MyBook Live Western Digital Hard Drive. The user interface is online and the IP is http://192.168.1.104. The website will access your local drive and allow for setting modification the same as having a local software application.

Consequently, our drive failed in less than six months. Its suggested that you do not register the drive with Western Digital. The technical support is only free for 30 days from purchase (or registration). Save your 30 days for when you have a problem.

The technical support is out of India and the Phillipines. If you are a Spanish speaker, you will get much better support in Spanish. The company's RMA process is poorly structured with a vacuum of information through most of it, however the new drive did arrive roughly 10 days after the RMA process was complete.
