I recently reinstalled my OS (W7U), and I can xmount my files on to the WD LIVE from the internal hard drives on my computer, but when I try with files from the My Book external hard drives I get a "Cannot Allocate Memory" Failure. I am mounting through SSH to a flash drive plugged into the WD LIVE. I am using B-Rad's WDLXTV firmware based on the 1.02.21 firmware. All of my permissions and shares are set correctly as well. I can't figure out what the problem can be. Has anyone experienced this issue or know what could be the cause? Here is an example:

Code: [Select]
# xmount "//192.168.0.195/Films" "Films" cifs
mount: mounting \\192.168.0.195\Films on /tmp/media/usb/Films failed: Cannot allocate memory
xmount: xmount //192.168.0.195/Films Films cifs user=guest,iocharset=utf8,ro FAILED WTF?!?

Is this the first time you are trying to stream from the mybook?  You may want to reformat it and see if that cures the problem.

No, I had everything running fine with all of my xmounts before reinstalling my OS. Now, my internal drives have no issues with files being xmounted. its the 2 wd my books that are giving me the problems with the "Cannot Allocate Memory" failure. I have another box so I switched the ext drives over to that one and set up Putty and SSH to my WD Live and the files xmounted with no problems at all. I moved the ext drives back to the original computer and I try to mount the files again. I get the same memory failure. It's got me puzzled! I don't want to reformat anyway because i have about 1 TB of files on each drive. If they work on one system with windows 7U, then they should work on another- I would think.
