TMI, but the cord might be fine. Just read the input spec on the power brick or per the manual, and if it can tolerate 110vac .5A (e.g. INPUT: 100-340VAC 0.5A) it will be okay. The maker doesn't know where that shaver cord has been, so of course they're not going to guarantee it won't start fire or worse, but it's just a cord. Test-fit it before energizing it, maybe buy a newer one if a cat's eaten some of it, then check carefully that it's not heating up when in use, before letting it be.
Let bro' know what kind of cord they sent, as a heads-up.

Hey, why'd you call it a generic desktop problem when you had the WD MyBook model info and everything? Nobody else can use problems and solutions that don't have specs on 'em....

I'm not sure if the motherboard supports SATA drives, so your best bet is getting any IDE (ATA) hard drive. It's up to you which kind you want. I've always been partial to Western Digital and Seagate.

If you are running Windows XP then you shouldn't have a problem with having a larger hard drive, I know Windows 2000 had some issues with them that required registery editing.

Try and change the jumpers at the back of the second hard drive to slave and then switch your computer on.

I have found an oversight in your manual! regarding the jumper on wester digital drives. Do I put a jumper on both drives or just drive "D"


this is fixya, not western digital, but if you already have a drive fitted (C) this will be the master and the jumper set accordingly, if you have bought a second drive this will be the slave (D) or (E) dependant on drive letter allocation and the jumper set at slave

I have a Western Digital My Book external drive which has been working perfectly. However during an automatic backup yesterday it returned a message that the backup failed and the reason was "system...


That will typically mean that the backup software was trying to backup a file that was deleted sometime between when the initial index of all the files was made and when the actual file was to be backed up. This typically happens with temporary files or files in a browser cache or similar. If you were using your machine at the time of the backup, it is even more likely to occur. I would suggest you look at the log file and see exactly what file(s) wasn't backed up.
