I already have this Mybook external drive for some years now and I’ve never had a problem. About some months ago I updated the OS of my computer to Windows 8.1. and since then I can`t use it with MyBook connect to the USB.
At the start up, my computer completely freezes after loading the desktop if I have MyBook connected. The Windows Explorer can actually map the drive M:, and access it if I have a lot o patience and time. Task Manager shows everything OK, except that my main HDD (partitions C: and D:) have a 100% utilization.
When I disconnect Mybook usb everything goes normal again. If I reconnected, the problem returns.
I`ve run WD Digital Data LifeGuard quick test on this drive and it passed.
Please, can someone help me?
