My MBWE(BR) died yesterday. Its just clicking and spinning up then restarting. I can't log in either by web or ssl as it is not booting to the point where it asks for an IP. I am going to rip out the hdd and see if I can recover the data (which will mean buying another HDD big enough…). This is really annoying as I had just bought an Asus O!Play so I could watch all the carp I had stored on it!
Anyway, I read back through the forums and found that over the last couple of months there seems to have been quite a few failures. Has anyone considered that this might be a design fault caused by the lack of spin-down? How could we prove this to WD?
