My boot home eSATA connected freezes at start. three inactive free partitions set. It seem FW update is needed. but i have done all the steps. we now repeat.
usb-connected normal boot.
After first installation usb-drive-connected it was recognize but not now anymore. after removing wd drive manager and switching ti usb-connection no usb-drive is recognized nor fw-update could be made. all other things done. what must be done when pop-up is showing up -only one usb-drive must be connected-? wait or exit?
edt seems not to exist here.
ok, usb-drive is now recognized. will update FW.
Hope esata-hanger will stop.
maybe something must be changed in bios-setup. i have an older MB ga-7n400 pro ver.2.0, otherwise perfectly running. i know how to handle problems
- installed WD drive manager. menue said undefined. 2. Instlling drivers automatically i could not see. 3. pls follow the onscreen prompts to reinstall the my book device. Nothing happened. 4. starting with esata-cable makes the system stop after being recognized. btw: WD drive manager worked properly with my other usbdrive-may book essentials.

I cannot backup my systempartition as an image onto this quick esata-drive using a bootcd. system is freezing at start.
- drivemanager. WD, you should remove the information in download-section windows and mac. if we use this undefined will be displayer. if we use windows only version, everything seems ok. silent installation. 2. in windows i have access to my external drive using usb, esata or firewire. firewire driver was not asked. how can i install the wd-ones? cannot backup ghost image when firewire or esata is used. with esata my book home-drive is hanging during recognition.
