    Hi all-- a tore open my WD MyBook to replace the internal disk, and after piecing it back together, it no longer mounts in Finder. Disk Utility is also blind to it-- in fact the only thing that will see it at all is System Profiler.

    Any thoughts?

    Was it just one drive? What edition of the MYBOOK was it?

    Just one drive. Not sure the edition of MyBook, it's silver with a white stripe of LEDs on the front.

    Just for kicks, I tried putting the drive that came with it (a WD drive) back in, and now the enclosure works again. Is it possible MyBooks only work with WD drives?
