    Gaining permission to WD hard drive

    I've recently tried to get my WD my world book, external hard drive going on a new laptop.
    Managed to install everything and it now shows on my network on laptop. But when I try opening the folder I get an message saying

    "MYBOOKWORLD is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find if you have access permissions. A specified logon session does not exist. It may already have been terminated. "

    I'm currently on windows 10, can anyone help me access it from new laptop.

    Thanks in advance

    Is it logon passworded?

    try accessing it using the IP address in windows explorer (not the web browser) and then logging on when asked for details...this SHOULD refresh W10 with the correct logon details...

    I've had similar issues with networked drives and this solved it for me.

    What I had to do here with my WD passport drive was go into Windows Explorer and type in the drives IP address in the top bar , this then forced the system to ask me for the logon details, after which the PC was able to access the drives as normal.
