I googled and I searched this forum. The internet is full of “help! My Mybooklive is stuck on blue light (with an occasional yellow blink) and I cannot conect to it!” threads, but they are all unresolved (except for those that end with “I took it back to the store”).
I have that problem. Since yesterday my drive has been on blue light, with an occasional yellow blink, and no computer can connect to it - not through the wireless router, and not directly with a cable either. It simply does not show up.
I have tried unplucking it, waiting, starting up again. I have tried shutting the computer off and turning it back on. Same with the modem. The problem is clearly the hard drive.
I have also tried resetting it with the button on the back. Just like it has been reported in some of the many other threads on the topic: It doesn’t work. It simply does not reset.
What is the problem?
(and why is it still unresolved in all the threads?)
Taking it to the store is not a solution (and I have had it for more than a year, so warranty is probably out anyway).
And taking it apart should really NOT be required (and I will only try that if someone can give me good reasons to and careful instructions).
Surely, there must be a (simple) solution? This happened all by itself al of a sudden.
