I was given the My Book World Edition as a christmas gift, and have had quite a bit of difficulty already.
By some sheer of luck, my desktop’s CD Drive managed to break. I thought I was in luck when I spotted WD Discovery and Backup software on the WD website. I downloaded those two applications to my desktop, and discovery is able to identify the HD.
My laptop, on the otherhand, won’t.
It’s not my CD Drive, as no other CD has this problem, but for some reason my laptop won’t recognize the Installation cd at all. It’ll pretend to load, and then pop it out with a message saying “please insert disk”. This is probably a vista issue, so I decided to go the same route with my desktop and download the two applications again. Well, unlike with the desktop, discovery can’t identify the HD on the laptop.
I disabled my firewalls to attempt a connection, but nothing. I have no idea what to do. My brother is a pretty big computer whiz and he’s at loss of what to do as well.
