Hi, recently my MyBook has stopped working. I suppose it is the first generation, it is white with the blue circles. It is 500GB LAN version (single drive) and I am wondering how could I get it working again. The drive is allright so I am definitely sure that motherboard or more likely LAN ethernet port has passed. Do you know if and where could I buy new or used but fully functional? Thank you for any tips.
Hi, Dont know if i'm too late but mine did something similar. It was the power to the HDD in the device. I now hijack the power from an Iomega external drive (USB but has power adapter) which I use for backups from the mybook. I had to cut into the power on both devices and run power across from one to the other. They both have to be plugged in as the mybook still needs power for the mother board.
Seems a bit of a pain but runs nicely.
