Western Digital WD My Book Studio Mac External Hard Drive Review 1TB 2TB or 3TB USB 3.0

Buy it on Amazon – http://goo.gl/6OkN8 (affiliate link). This is a review of the Western Digital My Book Studio Mac External Hard Drive. It’s geared to Mac owners and comes pre-formatted for Mac OS X. The build quality is better than other WD drives thanks to its aluminum enclosure. WD Part number WDBCPZ0030HAL-NESN

can this drive be on all day as one work with the computer or is it best to turn it on when you need to backup stuff?

Does it go into sleep mode when it is not used?

Thanks

Yes am plugging in straight on my TV. ok so I need to format it on windows machine in fat32 but I will be able to connect it back to my Mac to get back my movies and put it on the WD?

I am using an HP Compaq Presario (for the time being, unfortunately). I got this exact 2tb 3.0 My Book Studio external hard drive as shown in the video from Apple themselves as a gift (so no complaints here)  I installed the device and proceeded to try and transfer some files on to it. Only I can’t. I’m a fairly tech savvy individual but I’m not sure what the deal is. Can somebody help a blonde out? Pretty please and thank you??:)?

Excellent review Lon, thank you.  Brief, to the point, no pauses or hesitations, no technical issues.  Perfect.  Thanks again!

Good video! Thanks.

and it shows up in devices…it doesn’t even show up in “My Computer” where you would normal find external hard drives, flash drives or memorycards. I can’t even OPEN the darn :device” either…sigh,,,:(

Thank you

PoshPointO says:

and I don’t want it to just “back my whole computer up” I want to control what goes on it and essentially use it as I would a regular external hard drive (only password encrypted w/cloud option 😉

La Bintess Dosso says:

thank you very much, actually you are the only one who was able to give an answer.

burdell2 says:

Have you had any problems with the hard drive (on Macs specifically) not waking up? i was thinking about buying this and that was the only problem that I’ve seen about it.
