I purchased my 2nd WD My Book Essential 2TB External HDD today and like the others in this Post,
upon conection, my Windows 7 64bit said "Loading New Drivers" and then just the Virtual Drive came up but not this drive.
Previous to installing this 2nd drive I had one WD My Book Essential 2TB HDD, a Maxtor 3200 200GB External HDD, and another External Maxtor 750GB HDD all up and running and via USB 2.0
I removed the two Maxtors previous to installing my new 2TB My Book, so I just had the two My Book Essential 2TB External Drives connected via USB.
With the three External Drives before, they all were automatically given a new drive Letter amd nicely shared the same USB 2.0 rear connectors.
In the product advertisements for these external My Book HDD's, it even advertises the fact that we can bundle up multiple drives as easily as books on a shelf!
Well, I guess it's not quite as easy as advertised!
So in Summary..obviously there is a known problem with these HDD's working together..
So, as the others, that is my $64,000.00 question..
Anyone know what the solution is!?
