In December 2010 my WD 1TB My Book Studio Edition WD10000H1Q-00 stopped working. After I used it to backup some files from my older Windows XP PC and then reconnected it to my Windows 7 laptop, it kept saying "you need to format disk E; before you can use it". The fix was unbelievable simple: "chkdsk e: /f". However, it took me a while to find this 'solution' on the internet.

I hope I'll have some time coming weeks to complete my mission.
In the meantime I upgraded my Oracle VM Virual Box to version 4.0.4. I have no screenprints, as installation is very straightforward (keep clicking next).
Also I applied Service Pack 1 for Windows7 (64 bit).
