i'm just asking cause BBBBBrandon is helping me to try get my data back from one of the drives and he asked for my NAS serial for RMA after i told him about the degraded drive issue caused by the firmware upgrade.. so it may be kinda relevant

If you RMA the device, chances are you will get a refurb back. If your in raid 5 then you wont lose your data because the device will re-build the array - however if your in stripe 0 mode your screwed. Best option would be to run spinrite on the disk, see if it can fix the drive, put it back in the mbwe & see if you can boot it. If so then copy your data to another drive and then RMA it.
Its unfortunate that this problem arose but I seriously doubt the firmware caused it. Chances are it was on its way out anyway.

Does anyone know if WD is working on a new firmware to fix this? The last go-round between .10 and .12, the staff were posting regularly in the thread. Unfortunately, they were hit with a lot of anger (don't get me wrong, I'm NOT happy here, but I don't want to shoot the messengers.)
Just wondering if anyone knew of any updates.

How many of you are having problems like me in accessing private folder from Lion (15 up 30 seconds to log in) and no connection to MBWEII from iTunes?
I tried to clean keychain and reinstall Lion with no improvements.
Post your experience.
WD staff seem absent.

I cannot connect using any user credentials - except one - from any computer on the network (there are 3 users set up) - using the Finder in both SL and Lion.
No problem logging on to the WEII via the browser for any user on any machine on the same network.

i have a question:
when updating the firmware, will the contents of mybook be erased? how do i go about doing the update please in a way that will not do anything to the data on the drive?
this is obviously very important because since installing Lion i have not been able to reach my time machine backup that is on my wolrd book.

I have updated my Book World (white ring) and cannot login with ssh anymore. Tried everything even reset to factory. The SSH is ticked in advanced settings.
I tried to manualy install ssh with some firmware update tricks but none of these seems to work.

I really hope that the stuff of WD is working to reduce access times to my MyBookWorld.
I have a suspicion regarding this warning:
MyBookWorld daemon.warn afpd: volume "WD_Backup" does not support Extended Attributes, using ea:ad instead.
I use Time Machine to backup for my Mac with Snow Leopard.
Someone can explain?
