My My Book World Edition (blue rings) did not died. It's still working, but not working fine.
- drops connection every 30 minutes
- cannot delete files
- lost files (12GB of pics)
- cannot downgrade firmware
- shared folders visible in web interface, but not in FTP or SSH
During the period of time I had this device (almost a year now), it's always been a struggle (hacks, trials and errors, etc) - to get it to do what I need it to do. This is a poorly made device - if you need a challenge or a project to learn stuff, this is for you. If you need reliable storage, steer away.
My 2X1TB drives will go HERE
And this is only an alternative to getting a Dlink Storage device HERE - which I've actually tried and it FUCKING WORKS out of the box, no hacks required (yes, it's Linux based).
Thanks to all who tried to help in here.
