I recently shot a film and am using a 4TB WD MyBook Studio Edition II to save as I edit on Adobe Premiere. Several times an error has popped up stating the disk wasn’t ejected properly, however nothing was ever disconnected. The same thing happened today, only this time when I shut everything down and turn it on again, the WD ICON did not reappear on the Desktop. After 3 hours of reading, unplugging, restarting and reinstalling software the icon will still not appear. I have checked Disk Utility and tried various USB cables as well as electrical outlets.
I would love to avoid having to make a long tech service call/visit if someone could advise how to proceed in troubleshooting this issue! Thank you in advance!
