Love the WDMBWE series. I have several include 1TB single drive white,2TB single drive white, 6TB dual drive, 2TB Live and a 6TB dual drive live.
Recently my 500GB single drive blue ring stopped working. The hard drive finally gave up the ghost after all these years. I purchased a Caviar Green WD20EZRS 3.0 TB drive and tried to use the mybook_we_rescue procedures on my Ubuntu 10.04 system. It will not boot. No blue ring comes on. No network IP address.
I used the same procedure on a Caviar SE WD800 80 GB drive. It works fine.
I read something about new format on the 3TB drive on the WD site. Is it possible that this drive just won't work on the blue ring, or do i need to use a different SDA_PTAB?
