Product's Firewire Does NOT Connect to Computer's Firewire

John Brockmann, Amazon
13 January 2015
  • Summary: VERY disappointed to discover that the Firewire 6-pin female connections (there are even two of them) on the back of the product would NOT link up with Firewire 6-pin female connections on my computer--using, of course a male-ended 6-pin cable.

  • Summary: great for deep storing, or backing up of files. good price. not the fastest drive and it takes a few seconds for the unit to be recognized on my mac pro tower. recommended for anyone wanting to back up a lot of files.

A Nightmare for Some of Us

DBChas "DBChas", Amazon
16 June 2012
  • Summary: New development since I wrote review. There's a power on/off button on the back, which is always handy. But it's only handy when it works. I barely got it turned back on and doubt I'll be trying that again! I've a case in at Western Digital asking about the problem.

great drive, bad software

Ann Bjork, Amazon
28 October 2011
  • Summary: So far, the drive has been working very well, as far as I can tell, but if you are using a Mac,DON'T install the software, just use Time Machine. The WD software kept putting the drive to sleep whenever my Mac Mini went to sleep, and required a manual wake-up each time.

Everything worked but the display

Graydon Blair, Amazon
13 September 2011
  • Summary: I bought this to store video I edit on my mac w/ iMovie. Setup was really easy. Plug it in, turn it on, and the Mac recognized it. Pretty simple. I was able to start using it immediately. However, there was a virtual disk that showed up with what looked like some install drivers.

Power button doesn't work

C. J. Root "Wild Pete", Amazon
11 January 2011
  • Summary: I bought this drive as a backup storage device to back up the servers in my office. The speed is wonderful, and the drive makes no noise. My only complaint is that the power button does not work, and I have to unplug the device to turn it off.
