I just updated the firmware via the WD Firmware Updater and have also updated the Smartware.My drive was working normal for about 2 hours when in the middle of WoW the disk stopped working and went to Disk Discovering… When I open Smartware it shows that there is no partition on the drive. Also, in Windows Explorer, the drive is shown as a local drive CD Drive E:. I desperately need the other files on my drive as they are very important to my schooling. I have a My Book Essential USB 2.0 1 TB. Please help me figure this out as I am very upset that this happened after I updated to apparently a “better” version.
