Hey everybody, So a few weeks back I bought a Western Digital My Book Studio Edition II 4 TB external HD as my Lacie 2 TB was running out of free space. Seeing that it was formatted for a Mac I didn't bother to insert the included CD. I just plugged the HD into my MBP and when I was ready to eject I double clicked the HD and ejected it. This has been working fine for me for weeks, but now recently I've noticed that my external is not always recognized when I connect it to my MBP. Last night after a third try it was recognized on my desktop, and once I ejected it as I had before, the power light on the front of the HD would flash on every 4 seconds. I looked at the manual online and it states that the HD is in 'standby' mode when this happens. I shut down my MBP (with the HD still attached yet in standby mode) and the HD promptly powered down too. So I'm wondering what exactly is the proper method to eject my external from my MBP (without having to power down the laptop). Do I follow the same steps as previous but just hit the power button on my HD once it's in standby mode? Your responses are appreciated. I already moved all my previous Lacie media to the WD and don't want to lose it. Do I need to load the software that came with my HD in the first place? I'd rather not if I can avoid it. Thanks.
