Hi mark*s -- hope you're still here. Six months on, is the WD10EARS still working for you? Did you have to do anything special to make it work? I was sent a WD10EARS instead of the WD10EADS I ordered, and have read that its "Advanced Format" makes it unlikely to work properly; indeed, pcbbc said as much in a thread on DS
. pcbbc is the expert here so I'm likely to just return the drive, but I'm still curious as to whether it all worked out for you.
