Recently I visited New york and bought WD Mybook live. after coming back to montreal its worked nicely for five days and then on 6th day morning it wont startup. It was stucked on blue light , flash white light for few secs and then again go back to blue light. I tried lot of things suggested on the forum and after googling but all in vain. Tried hard reset didnt work. Tried keeping it idle for 24 hours still same. It seems one of those night probably the firmware was updated automatecally. I can see when I start it firmware was stuck loading it. I tried to connect it via ubuntu but that too didnt work. I had moved some downloaded movies on that and I bet they were there but i just could not get them back because mybook wont start up.Since I am in Canada now WD doesnt want to RMA it. Luckily B&H took it back and even gave me RMA shipping money (Thanks B&H).
My downloaded chunk of movies gone (200 over GB). Well its big deal over here as there is download cap everywhere.
Overall very disappointed with the product and I dont think I will ever think of even buying it again.
