WD MY Book 3.0 Not recognized


I am new to the WD Forum Community, but I can see that  alot of people have the same problem that I have. I never expected to see so many posts about the MY Book not being recognized!  There is not much more that I could say that has not already been said!  My drive is just about a week old and I am unhappy!  I suppose I will RMA to Amazon and try to find something else that works a little closer to what is actually advertised.

I have just finished my first build and this MY Book 3.0 was going to be my system backup.  I managed to create a system backup and then at next boot my drive was gone.!!  Oh well!  Any suggestions for a more reliable brand to purchase?
