Thanks for the response.
No error messages.
Everything is loaded and it works, but only occasionally. Normally it just sits and spins and does nothing.
Drive does not show up in disc management.
More than likely I’ll loose the MyBook! I have had nothing but problems with the several that I have owned over the years! I’ve even had TWO replaced under warranty. I guess just because CostCo has a good price, it’s not worth dealing with the issues that WD and MyBook. I have even spent more than it’s worth having a company retrieve data off of the drive. For one thing WD is ridiculous in the power supplies – I mean, come on, different power supplies with in one product model. That’s just plain stupid. I do NOT HAVE problems with the Seagate FreeAgent drive mounting an it’s on the same hub. If that’s WD’s advice they should say on the box “This device requires a dedicated USB port and will NOT WORK with a hub.”
I am so sorry, but I am really pissed off at WD and their Stupid MyBooks that are NOT RELIABLE!
Anyway, I’ll probably take the FreeAgent out of the mix, get what data I need, and FreeCycle this drive, I don’t care to have hurdles just for the sake of getting things done. IT SHOULD WORK AS IS. Either the device is designed to low standards, or the drivers are designed to low standards. It’s better off in the trash bin.
Thanks for your help,
