My Mybookworld 1tb blue ring seems to work just fine for a while (anywhere from 10 minutes to a day). It is accessible by all machines on my network (although sometimes not seen by my vista machine) , and then all of a sudden it just locks up. It isn’t overheating that I can tell, and I have even elevated the unit in a cradle to get better convective airflow vertically through the unit.
When it locks up, the rings stays lit, but I can’t turn it off. If I pull the plug and repower the unit - it is fine again immediately.
When I first purchased the unit I RMA’d 3 units, and they all did this. After some network tweaking It worked fine for the last 8-10 months, and suddenly started acting up again recently (no I don’t remember the network tweaks). I have it configured with a static IP at the moment.
I have seen similar posts all over the web, but no good responses. Anyone have any ideas, this is really bothersome.
