please can you help me with my problem? I have this device http://support.wdc.com/product/install.asp?groupid=107&lang=en I do not know what happened to it, because it wasn't mine. When I plug the device into wall the blue rings only flash once and that's all. Even the LAN led lights are off. I've removed both HDDs and connected them into my desktop PC. Booted linux live distro I was able to see both HDDs there are all partitions from sda1 to sdb4. I have tried to mount the RAID using mdadm but all I see is empty lost+found folder. Then I tried to run fsck ext3 on md4 it found lots of errors. Now I see in lost+found many folders with numbers in names (#143412 and so on). On sda1 sda3 sdb1 sdb3 partitions there are linux files.
My question is: is it possible to bring this device back to life? Because I do not know if there is problem with the HDD corrupted linux files or mybook mainboard. Please have anybody of you tried to power on the mybook without HDD in it? If yes was the blue ring lighting and the lan leds?
Or if the linux files on HDD are corrupted the blue light is off and so are the LAN leds? Because I think that the lan LED lights should flash even with corrupted HDD files? Am I wrong?
Should I try the rescue procedure written by christoff4444 http://mybookworld.wikidot.com/forum/t-48373/backup-images-for-wd-mybook-we-ii-2tb will it help?
Thank you very much.
