I have a 2TB My Book Premium Edition II configured as RAID 1. It used to be connected to a Windows 7 machine. Some time ago while Windows was installing an update it started giving me errors. I ended up replacing it with a newer My Book Mirror Edition which only has USB 2.0. I’d like to get the My Book Premium Edition II working again so I can use it over FW800 with my Mac.
If I connect the device to a Windows XP machine with WD Drive Manager installed, I get a popup message saying: “WU2T12017737 has a problem”. The WD icon in the system tray flashes red. If I open WD Drive Manager it says there are no drives found. The device is partitioned into 3 drives and they are appear fine in Windows Explorer. The data is fine.
If I connect the device to my Mac, the drives are added to Finder. When I run My Book RAID Manager (V1.01), I initally get an error: “WU2T12017737 is faulty, Call technical support for help.” I click OK and the Drive Configurations window shows a green tick next to “My Book Device”. When I click “Info” it gives me more details including RAID Status is Healthy and both Disk A and Disk B are good.
What’s going on? How do I stop the errors?
Note it is almost the same as http://community.wdc.com/t5/External-Drives-for-Mac/My-Book-Premium-Edition-II-has-a-problem/m-p/68344 although I haven’t been able to get it to stop the errors.
