My Book Essential 1T replace the internal disk with a new one

Hi ! I have My Book Essential Edition 2008 and the old hard drive WD10EAVS has failed.  I would like to replace the internal disk with a new one. For example, a series of green WD also 1TB or more. 

Inside the device controller is IC - Initio INIC-1606L as serial ata to USB 2.0 converter.

Is it possible to apply to the new WD disks ?? Has anyone tried this?




I have never tried this since it is not supported. Replacing the internal drive might work but it is not guaranteed. Lets see what other users can comment on this.
