I'm gonna throw up...
I bought a Western Digital 1 terabyte Home Addition My Book. I've had it now for like... 4 months? Maybe more. I backed up all my stuff on it. And about a month ago, when I got a video Nano... I downloaded a lot of videos. But it was filling up my hard drives too much, so I finally decided to bite the bullet, and move stuff over to my My Book. Because it was safe, and all.

And now my computer can't recognize it. And it appears that it has failed. The light is not moving up and down, it just stays on. I can feel hear the fan start up, and drive appears to be spinning, but there is no icon in "My Computer", and there is no tray icon.

I put a call into WD, but "all technicians are busy", so the operator (from India) took my number, and they will call me back tomorrow.

And I had just moved all my QaF Vids to it. Thank god, it was too much trouble to move all the music. But I lost all my vids! And all the other nasty fun porn vids people had sent me over time.

I wanna cry!

Does anyone have the "Ready to Go" vid? Or links to any site that has vids?

*rocks self*

"Ready to Go"? I think it should be on YouTube? I suggest you might google it there? it will maybe help you find that vid, hopefully. just let me know if you find it .. so good luck!

OH NO!! Ugh, I absolutely hate when I hear stories like this since I know that I'd completely break down when one of my drives dies on me. I know that it's 'when' and not 'if' since it will inevitably happen.

I think I did post all of the videos that I have in an old post. I'll look for it for you so that you can download them. :(

My nephew has it, uses it just as a hard drive, not a backup. Takes it everywhere in a backpack, and his works fine. Mine? Worked fine, and now? A brick.

Any hints on what to do and what not to do?

I intend to use it for a back up for most of my files but I want to transfer all the large ones like vids and films to it.

It turns out that either 1) the firewire cable went bad, or 2) my firewire ports stopped working. Once I plugged it into my USB port, I was fine... but the speeds are a little slower, and since I'm saving video files...

Still, nice to have 1 tb storage. Although I *am* now a bit gun-shy about losing data.
