My Book World does not power up


Mine is the same. Powered down over Xmas. Powered it up and the disks spin up but no lights.
Emailed WD. They sent me a bunch of standard test stuff. Nothing helped.
I ended up taking the two 500G drives out and putting them in my computer. The first one I tried (B) would not allow the PC to start!!!
The second one I tried (A) was found correctly in the BIOS. The XP disk manager found it but couldn't identify the file format.
I put the A drive (only) back in, powered it up and voila ... it worked.
Looks like the B drive failed. Now to go buy a relacement drive for B!

WD mybook 1TB is gone from the network


Have you tried different cables or a different port on your router. Is there any way to get into the Hard Drive by connecting it directly to a PC and checking the network settings or anything..? If not, then you may have to connect it directly to a PC and share it to your other PC's.

Bosch Axxis problem


Thought these additional details might help as we are having a similar problem.

When the washer is turned on we get a blank screen, then after a bit we see the display flash. After sometime flashing then we see it go to normal and we can run it. It is as almost as if it need to warm up...

We can get the display to show faster, by playing with the knob. However, the machine still needs time before we can use it.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.
