Hello, I am a new user on the bulletin board so I hope I am not duplicating this problem.
Until a couple of days ago, the MyBook was woking fine. I went to look at a file yesterday and the MyBook could not be seen on my home network. The outer blue ring was lit all the time. I decided to power the unit down and re-boot it but when I re-applied power, there were no blue lights in either ring and the unit was making a very quiet sound like a clock ticking.
I have checked the power supply and it stands at 12.001v DC and because I suspected there might be a power problem I have also checked that the drive inside-a WD10EACS-was receiving power, which it was. Both 12v and 5v.
So now I have no idea what to do next.
If anybody has any thoughts or sugestions I would be very grateful as I need to get my data off this device.
Then, I will buy a dual drive RAID device so I don’t get bitten again!
Many thanks in advance…
