Well my MyBook stopped working. It powers up (spins), and I hear some head movement I think, then after maybe 10 sec, it sounds like it’s spinning up again, and it repeats this cycle.
I have tried it in 2 other external enclosures to no avail. In one, (Adaptec) it just makes a noise like it’s trying to spinup, but it’s not. (no gyro action)
I recently bought a newer 500GB Caviar Blue and swapped the boards, but the result was the same and the new drive with it’s own board did the same thing leading me to believe that the problem is with the enclosure.
Is there a list of compatible enclosures for this drive? Should I just try some?
It’s never been dropped or fried with the wrong power supply, and usage has just been to store movies, ie light usage.
Windows Vista on Dell, Pentium 4, 2.5GB RAM
