windows 7 loosing connection to mapped network drive

Hi all

I have been searching for long hours for a solution to stop Windows 7 dropping the connection with a WD Mybookworld network drive.
Firstly I followed some suggestions from this forum and others.
The only solution which helped me was this following.(wdc support community)
I have logged in and out of both machines successfully a few times and so far it seems to hold.

"If you want a FAST solution, use dzentai's at page 7 - or still wait with us for a solution from WD (i hope at 2010.....)
Small guide on howto disable these services (only for latest MyBook World Edition II White version):

In the web configuration switch to Advanced Mode, then on the System tab using the Advanced button check the SSH Access checkbox on the top of the page, then Submit.
Using Putty or any other SSH client connect to your NAS's IP address, and log in using "root" as username, and "welc0me" as password!
Now you are inside your NAS.
Type the following on the prompt (this will move/save the startup scripts to the /root/ folder and disable running of mionet main program):
mv /etc/init.d/S9M_mionet /root/
mv /etc/init.d/S97twonkyserver /root/
chmod -x /usr/mionet/bin/cvm
then reboot your NAS with

Disable all other unused services in the web configuration to free up some more RAM and make your NAS more stable.
I have considered doing this, but it doesn't sound completely successful. Plus, the steps above are a bit beyond my skill level.

I can confirm 100% the above works my 2TB World edition NAS has been rock solid for 4-6 weeks before i did the fix i would be lucky if it would stay up for 3-5 hours and i would have to do a hard reboot of the NAS
The only downside to the above is Twonky and Mionet doesnt work which basically makes the drive useless if you want it to stream movies ect to PS3"
