Hi, I saw a similar post to this and I am having a similar problem but with a My Book Studio Edition II. I am running Windows 7 64bit Pro.
I formatted using the WD Drive manager and switched to RAID 1. It says that it is healthy, etc…
If I connect to eSATA I have major problems that include my machine not booting and I have experience crashes also. THe drive constantly tries to go to sleep but cannot so the drive is always making noise when attached via eSATA. After months of issues I have given up on eSATA and now connect with USB. The functionality is better but still have problems. I cannot wake my machine after going into hibernation. It just hangs on the boot screen. I have to do a hard reset on both my laptop and the MyBook.
I figured I would try to upgrade the firmware but with now success. Here is the download:
I disabled my antivirus and firewall and followed all of the instructions from this webpage:
I did not uninstall WD Drive Manager as the instructions did not tell me to do this.
Your help is greatly appreciated. Dan
