My Book Live Red LED

Hey guys,

 

Tried to find some information regarding my problem but to novail.

 

I have a 2TB My Book Live that was working fine until I moved house. It now shows a Red LED and does not read on my computer. Its as if it does not exsist. Is there a System Fault with the HD and is there a solution to fix it or do I have to replace it?

 

Thanks.

Re: My Book Live Red LED

In the MBL a red LED can have multiple causes:

 

• Network cable not inserted
• Disk SMART failure
• Disk thermal warning threshold exceeded (under or over temp)
• Data Volume does not exist
• System Volume does not exist

Vadir,

 

I did read that in the User Manual. The cable is inserted so I am assuming it is one of the remainders. Given it may be;

• Disk SMART failure
• Data Volume does not exist
• System Volume does not exist

 

What would be the best measures to fix it?

I have this problem also, but with a 6tb My Book Live Duo.

 

Can't  find any infomation about how to repair / recover the drive, and can't reach it consistantly on my network.

 

Does anyone have a suggestion?

The upper led on the RJ45 connector blinks in a semi random way, the lower one is on solid.

 

I can access individual files from the drive, but trying to copy  multiple files results in a network name error.
