The first MBLD I got was broken out of the box. After a couple of week I got this new one. It’s spattered with problems.
Why is it so slow? I know everybody is having this problem but here’s the deal: next to my MBLD is my old MBL with an identical setup (and content) and it’s working just fine. Accessing the MBLD in Finder (os x) is slow. Reading (streaming) from MBLD is slow. Writing is slow. Using the browser UI is slow. All this compared to my MBL, that is so don’t tell me there’s just something wrong with my network.
MBLD is not showing in the WD Quick View in the menu bar. Sure, this is just a minor inconvenience BUT a sign of something being wrong!!!
Green light blinking all the time! Drive buzzing and working all the time! I’ve had this frive for a couple of weeks now and it hasn’t slept for a second. The internal drives haven’t stopped, ever! What is it doing?
Why are the folders in the public/shared videos write protected? I didn’t do it! How do I unlock them? I just copied the content from MBL to MBLD and the folders on MBL are not locked…
So to sum it up, why does my MBL work so nicely while this MBLD is piece of… you know!?
