I’ve been using my My Book Premium for a year now. I partitioned it into 3 sections, one for Fat 32, one for Mac OS 2.8 files, and the final partition is being used for my Time Machine back-up. It’s all working fine, but once I’ve dragged the image icons from the desktop to the trash bin to ‘disconnect’ the drive, I can only get them back again by unplugging the Firewire cable and plugging it back in again.
How can I get the HD image icons to mount on the desktop without having to physically unplug/re-plug the cable?
I’m assuming I’ve missed some software somewhere as the drive also doesn’t show the amount of disk usage.
Should I have installed some WD software on the Mac laptop? And if so, which software do I need? I have My Book Premium 500gb.
