I’ve got a My Book Studio Edition that I’ve had since late 2009. It was fine the last time I used it, in January 2011.
I plugged it in the other day and it is behaving rather strangely. The top half of the light is solid, while the bottom half flickers on and off. I looked at the page on WD’s website that explains the flashing lights http://wdc.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1480/~/flashing-lights-on-an-older-wd-my-book-or-my-passport),,) which seems to be suggesting that the boot has been unsuccessful.
I’ve tried the drive with a number of leads (FW 400, 800) but nothing seems to happen. It won’t mount on the desktop or show up in Disk Utility. Is there anything else I can try?
Thanks in advance.
