Bah! External Hard Drive Joys


Recommended Posts

I had problems with my WD drive , too.

 

I may be telling you something obvious, so don't shoot me if I am, but make sure you format it using the Mac's Disk Utility, as some (maybe all) WD drives are not fully compatible with Macs straight out of the box.

 

Once I formatted my WD drive, I had relatively few problems... but then again, I only use it as a secondary backup. I would never use it for audio work. Too unstable.

Western Digital Media Center 250G -

 

Garbage.

 

Won't power up.

my WD basically backs up my iTunes now...that's it. i can't run anything from it. i'd go out and buy a GLYPH if i were you...if that's just not in the cards now, get yourself a cheaper store-bought one. i found the best to be acomdata's. i ran my whole CD project from that in a very labor-intensive PT 7.1 environment and it did great...and it was 90 bucks after rebate in COMPUSA. not bad. :)
