I need help please. I have this replacement and do not want to screw it up since the last one stopped working and I do not have WD warranty replacement on this model. I first used it on the mac mini and it failed the original one and then tried to use it here in Thailand on the Truevision PVR box with the Orico enclosure and had to format on the Set top box.
Finally I could not use it there and WD replaced it yesterday with no warranty and I do not know if I need to plug both usb on one end into the mac mini and then reformat it with mac journaled? or since I will not use it on anything but the mac have to download some drivers or software from WD ?
Please tell me one side of the Orico enclosure shows esata plug in the cable has esata on one side that fits there on the other end is the double usb with blue white one and a white one. Do I need to plug in both of those usb into the mac and can I use a usb hub since my mac mini late 2011 only has 4 usb 2.0 slots?
I hope I mede this clear? Thanks in advance on any help in setting up this to back up my mac mini either through time machine or just drag and drop files and pictures and Quick time player movies from the mac?
