I own a WD5000D033 (WDG1NC5000), the 500Mb original version of the World edition.
First, even after reading the special section, and some threads, I don't know if I should update to version 2 of the firmware. Some say that if it is working OK, don't touch it, but is it possible to know more exactly what are the advantages of updating ?
Second, is it even possible for me to proceed to that update ? When using the "Shared Storage manager", it tells me that "There is no new firmware available". I probably missed something, so fell free to point me out the relevant threads if it is the case.
