this is a little bit offtopic, but I have no idea, where to ask this question, because all the forum is about MyBook WE and Live … but not about the MyBook Essential …
I have a mbwe2 with 2x 1TB … and I have 2 MyBook Essential 2TB (USB 3.0) … now I thought about upgrading the MBWE with the harddrives from the MyBook Essential to get 2x 2TB.
I got one HD out of the case, put it into the MBWE and it started immediately (after booting) to copy the content to the new drive (I use RAID 1).
Then I put the 1TB disk from the MBWE into the Essential and … nothing happend. I cannot access the drive. My MacOS X tells me, there is a problem with POSIX and Win7 just tells me, there's a prob. :-/
The harddrives are:
2TB from the Essential: WD20EARS (64MB cache)
1TB from the MBWE: WD10EADS (32MB cache)
The Essential with USB 3.0 does also exist in just a 1TB version … this will (surely) use the WD10EARS, which means, it has twice the cache, but I think, that's all the difference …
Is it possible, that it does not work because of this?
I've no more idea, what to do.
Has anyone tried this and / or could help me?
Thank you very much!
