Question about Western Digital 500GB My Book World Edition 500 GB Hard Drive
My WD 500GB keeps going offline - works fine for about 1/2 a day but then when I go to access it at some point, it says I have no rights/permissions to access it. It appears on my network, however, and so must be connected. Then it won't let me turn it off via the power button on the front. When I unplug and then plug back in again, the thing turns over and over (wurring and ticking) and the light won't even go on. The only way to get it back online is to wait a couple of days with it unlplugged, then plug it back in again.
I'm not using MioNet by the way.
I'm getting issues like this too...ready to throw the thing in the trash...as soon as I can figure out how to get files off of it.

I had some of those issues, they stopped after switching of the
WD anywhere access.
Started with firmware 2.00.xx
