I just installed MyBook live, and have it, and all of my electronics in a cabinet, to keep them out of sight. As you can imagine, MyBook overheated and shut down.
After years, and years of messy cords and wires showing everywhere, I had a cabinet built to store routers, modems, and all TV items and while there is sufficient air flow to take care of all of them, the MyBook seems to heat up much faster than the others. Nothing is stacked, but what makes this impossible to move is that MyBook must be tethered to the router.
Everything else in the house is wireless, and therefore keeps the heat down in the cabinet.
Asking the WD designers and techies; can you create a wireless MyBook? That way, I can place it somewhere, out of the way, and give it all the airflow it needs.
