Currently have three Western Digital Drives, two USB and the newest being a MBL. Since installing the MBL I have encountered the following problems (not seen previously):
Network Link Down - This happens typically after transferring large amounts of data over a long period of time. Resetting the drive seems to fix this.
Unexplained System Shutdowns - This has happened twice since installing this drive and is the most frustrating.
Unexplained Boot Priority Changes in BIOS - I’m assuming this has something to do with number 2. I have never seen this happen with a BIOS. The boot priority changes to my CD-ROM and WD Drives (USB) without warning and with BIOS write protection enabled.
WD SES Driver Error - Win 7 troubleshooting popup. It’s solution just brings me to the WD support page.
I am really happy with my two USB drives but these problems associated with the MBL are infuriating and persistent. Please find a solution to this as it seems I am not the only one with these problems (other Network Link Down posts).
