Hello all, I am having an issue with my Western Digital NAS drive. It’s the white MyBookWorld edition with the white light, I noted the model number in the subject line.
For the past few weeks I have noticed that the drive becomes unaccessable almost daily, and all of my backups fail. When the drive becomes non responsive, the only light lit up is the bottom one. Holding the power button doesn’t reboot the device, only pulling the power cord will do that. Once it’s rebooted, I can restart a backup or file transfer, but without fail the transfer will fail again. I upgraded to the latest firmware and I am still seeing the same issue.
I need to be able to trust this thing to reliably backup my computer without needing to be tinkered with. Is there something I can do to fix this drive? This is my second Western Digital drive in the past few years, my 500gb My Book USB died without warning, and I am wondering if this thing is on it’s way out too… Any help would be appreciated.
