    This is the correct link, the previous link didn't work:

    I have the Western Digital My Book Essential Edition 1TB, and it works brilliantly.
    According to the Wiki, it's one of the most used HD out there, and it's working perfectly for everyone.

    Are you having any problems like this.
    I am running Usb loader GX rev709, Western Digital My Book Essential 1 TB and running rev13a. My games work fine but after playing for a few hours the game with freeze and I have to power down and restart. It happens with different rev's 568,600,703,709 and I even used the forwarder 600 and still same problem.
    I read something about the hd going into sleep mode but is that possible when playing a game?
