Same Problem with MyWorld Book Edition II, sent back got a new on

Same Problem with MyWorld Book Edition II, sent back got a replacement and that again has exactly the same issues , went on blower with WD support for over an hour decided they will upgrade me from the blue rings to the single white light the next model up, Myword book Edition II (renamed) , but unfortunatley they did not have any in stock to release , I was asked to try back in next week - which is this week , so will give them a call tomorrow, currently using 2TB blue rings, firmware.

I think its a HW issue NIC and not firmware, but who know I know WD dont!

Get a job so you can buy a new book?

Alternatively, make a Spanish-speaking friend with whom you can practice the language.

Can anyone tell me what type of replacement drives go in a WD World book II? 1 TB

Do I understand that you are willing to open up the enclosure yourself to replace the drive inside?
You can put any two SATA 3.5" drives inside you want, as long as they are identical to each other.

Had my book 500gb hard drive for less than a day, same problem, no recognition and no blue light, lost my music backup. Not impressed.

Replacing HDD's on WD MyBook World II won't format

I was attempting something similiar -- replacing my World Edition II 500GB drives with 1TB drives. My research unearthed two things... These units will only work with Western Digital Caviar Green drives. The blue ring won't light if other drives are installed. I also read (in a couple spots) that the unit's O/S is stored on the hard drive (as opposed to be stored in Flash memory). If this is true, you would need to image the old drive to the new (using a tool like Ghost or True Image), and increase the partition size as part of the imaging process. I don't know if this would work, as I opted to not proceed with the upgrade. For me, the new version of the World Edition II (WDH2NC20000 and WDH2NC40000) turned out to be a better option than upgrading. These units provdide the extra space and are MUCH faster than the old ones.

My Computer lists my new MY BOOK as two drives.


It sounds like you have the My Book Mirror edition. If that is the drive that you wanted it is suppose to do the mirroring. Otherwise, I'd contact WD and explain that they sent you the wrong drive.

Good Luck
