Using WD myBook 500Gb for about a month, from all the Optware only svnserve and Transmission are used actively.
Yesterday (while watching an avi from it) it suddenly shut down. Just powered off. No led, no hd spinning sound, no ping. Pressing the power button doesn't help. Recovered it only with power cord unplugging/plugging.
I've tried to search for anything in /var/log/messages - nothing informative. The same shutdown repeated two times over this night (once - even without any samba access - I've turned off my laptop).
Can't find any similar symptoms on this forum - have anybody seen such a problem?
