Question about Western Digital My Book Pro Edition II WDG2TP10000 1 TB FireWire 400 (1394a) Hard Drive
After changing one defective drive (Drive B.), and reformatting under Raid 1. (mirror) everything works with a USB 2 connection, but I would like to connect the MyBook unit to my Firewire hub.
Now I cannot even get the unit to mount when directly Firewire-liked to my PC.
The drivers are supposed to be installed as soon as I insert the WD Software CD-Rom, but it seems that the Firewire link is not recognised.
Strange that the USB-link works.
Would be very pleased if you can suggest a solution.
Many thanks = John
Hello. You may have erased some firmware drivers, or even have a bad connection on the unit. The easiest solution (if still under warranty) is to get the unit replaced. if not then you may have to make a visual inspection of the PCB at the iee1394 port (firewire/i-link) connection and make sure nothing is loose. if that fails, you may have to look up the particular company and request the firmware.
