So it seems that every 24 hours or so - My Wold Book 1TB drive disappears from my internal network -- forcing me to unplug the drive and then recycle it -- and guess what ... then it reappears ... only to go away again in 24-48 hours
So - are these drives prone to this aberrant behavior -- I iniitally thought it was my router where I have plugged it in ... but after spending $100 for a new router .... the problem has not gone away .... and yes it has the latest firmware.
Do you guys have ongoing reports that your drives do not work -- I am so tired of using WD Discovery and WD Link tools and having it say "no drives exist"
Perhaps there are other vendors with more reliable soltuions ... I will try to use this channel and then (failing that) I will just get another brand and will be generous with my complaints around the internet about the defective qulity of the World Book drives ...

is the drive new?
I doubt it.. So did it always worked like this?
The board might be heating up causing the network loss
if the drive is under warranty you can replace it

I have come to the cnclusion that the drive is defective - but unfortunately no longer under warranty .... **bleep** ... next time I will be smarter -- pay more for better quality ...
