So I’m wondering if any of you have run into this problem…
I just bought and unwrapped a new MyBook 2TB 3.0 (w/o 3.0 PCIe card)…problem is when i plugged it into my laptop Vista Ultimate SP2’s 2.0 usb ports…nothing. happened.AT ALL. …It didnt even register that there was a new device. It’s supposed to be fully compatible with 2.0 USB’s, So i thought it might be my drivers so I updated all through Win Device Manager. Still nada.
I even tried connecting it to my desktop pc which is running Win os7 and it didnt even register on that unit. all 8 x usb ports and still nothing.
For clarification, I plugged the device into a direct power point and an extension plug thing and it seems to work fine, the light comes on and you can hear it starting up after you press the power button. But it just doesn’t do anything when connected to a PC or laptop.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I have just emailed WD support by the way, but I wanted to see if anyone else had run into the same problem?? Hoping someone out there can help me please!!!
