I had My MBE working fine while connected to my PC then I decided to connect it directing to my new MAC. I found out the dirive had to be foramatted different for mac and to make a long story short I messed up and now I just want it back the way it was. The problem is the software that was built into the drive is gone. I did manage to connect it to my pc (XP) and get it to recognize the drive and reformatted it per instructions on WDC support. But now when I reboot I have to unplug the mybook as the system will not reboot otherwise. Then once it is rebooted I have to plug it in, reshare it etc. That is getting tedious. So I’m assuming the initial software that was loaded had something to do with preventing that. Any ideas?
How do I get the original drive software back - I only see download options for the software on the disc that came with the unit. And unfortunately I did not use the backup utility I just read about.
Thank you to anyone that can help me with this.
