MyBook Home edition - lamps are flashing fast and not working


#1

Hello,

Does anybody know this problem: When I plug my HD to electricity plug the lamp on the front panel starts flashing very fast. No spinning start and of course computer doesn’t see HD.

Are you getting enough power to the drive. If you’re plugged into a power strip, try plugging directly into the wall and see if that fixes it.

I believe Flashing all LED fast is related to heat issue.

Do you still have this problem after cooling off?

Try latest Firmware from below.
