Hi all, I'm trying to get my world book 1tb blue rings going for the first time and don't know where to turn and WD is not helping me. I bought my WD book from Best Buy a while back and never took it out of the box until a got around to use it (about 3 months later) then i discovered that the drive would not work. Best Buy would not take it back so i deceided to open it only to find out that it was a return item and someone had removed the 1tb drive and replaced it with an old 40gb ide drive. I bought a WD Caviar Green 2tb drive to repair it and figured all i would have to do was to download some files from WD (drivers and such) and i would be on my way, i didn't know what i was getting myself into. All my PCs on my network are running windows xp, i still have the original cd that came with the WD Word Book, (i guess the theif was kind enough to leave it behind) you guys think you can help me out?
Please READ the forum first…. Everyone starts out here on the left main menu. Read all of that first. Here are some specific pages I'd recommend to get you familiar with the recovery/installation steps, problems, and work-arounds. Read that and it will help a GREAT deal. If you're looking for someone to fix it for you, that's ok, too., but just say that. :-)
I always try to use the SEARCH feature in the upper right to see if others had the same or similar problem to mine. I've found it works well and much faster than asking a question that's been asked many times already.
Happy reading! (I know it's a lot, but worthwhile - you're BOUND to learn a lot)
