|Purchased this to hook up to my Time Warner Cable Scientific Atlanta 8300HDC DVR and it did not work. Not as fast as other units that I have built but perfectly usable. Nice smaller size (compared to previous MyBooks). Attractive Design".|

|I got this drive to replace a slow 5400 rpm Seagate drive and is amazed at the screaming performance and its quietness. Somewhat Satisfied After two years, this drive finally went South on me. I wish hard drives were not so short lived. I guess two years is not so bad.|

DATA LIFEGUARD DIAGNOSTICS (DLGDIAG) USER MANUAL
The Data Lifeguard diagnostic utility (DLGDIAG) is designed to test WD hard drives for errors. If DLGDIAG reports errors, you can use the program to attempt to restore the hard drive to a defect-free status. DLGDIAG supports WD external and SATA hard drives. It also supports EIDE hard drives installed on both primary and secondary IDE ports (either the motherboard or a controller card). DLGDIAG must be run separately to test each WD hard drive in the system. Depending on your hard drive model and diagnostic requirements, you can use either the Windows or DOS version of DLGDIAG. Windows and DOS versions of the DLGDIAG software are available at support.wdc.com/download.
Windows Quick Test performs a quick S.M.A.R.T. self-test to gather and verify the Data Lifeguard information contained on the drive. Extended Test performs a Full Media Scan to detect bad sectors. Test may take several hours to complete depending on the size of the drive. Write Zeros writes zeros to the drive using the Full Erase or Quick Erase option. Erases all data on the drive by writing zeros to each sector file system and data will be lost. View Test Results displays results for the last hard drive tested. DOS Select Drive selects the hard drive to test and displays status for all hard drives. Quick Test tests the drive quickly for any major physical problems. Extended Test checks the drive thoroughly for any major physical problems. Write Zeros To Drive wipes any and all data off the drive. Use this option when your data is no longer usable or recoverable. View Test Results displays results for the last hard drive tested. Print Test Results prints results for the last hard drive tested (USB printers not supported). Log File Open/Close stores results for all hard drives tested (DLGDIAG.LOG) Enter & Print RMA Information enters and prints RMA information for returning a hard drive to WD. Help brief descriptions of each option and explanations of error codes. Quit reboot your system once you have completed the selected tasks.
When to Use DLGDIAG
If the hard drive reports errors, if you are unable to access files on the hard drive, or if another diagnostic utility such as SCANDISK, CHKDISK, DEFRAG, or Norton Utilities reports errors on the hard drive, run DLGDIAG to determine if they are hard drive-related. DLGDIAG does not report errors associated with the system BIOS, controller card, or motherboard of your system. DLGDIAG can be used at any time to test for hard drive errors. If you experience problems accessing files or encounter other apparent hard drive errors, you can safely run the Quick Test option to confirm your hard drive integrity. DLGDIAGs Repair Drive feature allows the user to restore any errors found during the Extended Test scan of your hard drive without destroying all data on the drive. DLGDIAG does not resolve mechanical damage such as noisy drives or drives that do not spin up. Contact WD technical support (see Service and Support on page 19) if you have a hard drive that exhibits the above difficulties.
Before using DLGDIAG
If used properly, DLGDIAG does not overwrite data on the hard drive during the scan and will not result in data loss. However, you should always back up your data before running any diagnostic utility. Back up all data on your hard drives(s) before using DLGDIAG. CAUTION: Back up all data on your hard drive(s) before using DLGDIAG. You will erase all data if the Write Zeros To Drive option is invoked.
DLGDIAG for Windows
DLGDIAG for Windows is a Windows version of the Data Lifeguard Diagnostics utility. The utility can perform drive identification, diagnostics, and repairs on a WD FireWire, EIDE, or USB drive. In addition, it can provide the drive's serial and model numbers.

Unpacking and Handling Procedures
WD hard drives are precision instruments and must be handled with care during unpacking and installation. Hard drives can be damaged by rough handling, shock and vibration, or electrostatic discharge (ESD). Be aware of the following precautions:
If you need additional information or help during installation or normal use of this product, visit our product support Web site at support.wdc.com and choose from these topics:
Do not unpack your hard drive until you are ready to install it. Your hard drive is packaged in an anti-static bag. Handle the hard drive only by the sides. Avoid touching circuit board components on the bottom of the drive. To avoid ESD problems, ground yourself by touching the metal chassis of the computer or by wearing a grounding strap before handling the hard drive. Articles of clothing generate static electricity. Do not allow clothing to come in direct contact with the hard drive or circuit board components. Do not stack hard drives or stand your WD drive on its edge. Do not drop, shake, or knock down the hard drive. Save the original packaging materials and antistatic bag in case you need to return your hard drive. Your warranty will be void if your returned drive is shipped in anything other than the original packaging or WD-approved materials.
Using an operating system not listed below may result in data loss.

Online Product Registration
Take advantage of WD offerings by registering your drive at https://www.westerndigital.com/en/products/registration.
Set the Jumpers
Note: WD SATA drives ship from the factory with either Default 1 or Default 2 (see below) set as the standard configuration.
Standard configuration 1 (no jumper added - spread spectrum clocking disabled). Standard configuration 2 (jumper across pins 1-2 - spread spectrum clocking disabled). Default 2
The default setting for WD SATA hard drives varies depending on the model. To determine the default setting for your drive, look at the drive label on the top of the drive. DO NOT change the default setting if you intend to use the drive in a desktop computer. Change the jumper settings ONLY if you intend to use the drive in an enterprise storage environment. For more information on these advanced settings, obtain the full version WD SATA Installation Guide at support.wdc.com. SSC_DIS Mode (Default) Enable or disable the spread spectrum clocking feature. Default setting is disabled. OPT1 Only for factory use. OPT2 Only for factory use.

Install the SATA Hard Drive
IMPORTANT: Only for WD 7200 RPM SATA hard drive kits; all other WD SATA hard drive kits, skip to step 1 below.
If installing your new WD drive as an upgrade from a previously installed hard drive:
To ensure the optimal settings for your drive configuration, WD recommends running the Installation Tutorial in the Windows version of Data Lifeguard Tools before hardware installation to generate your custom installation instructions. See Data Lifeguard Tools on the reverse side of this poster.
1. Connect the smaller connector on the WD SATA cable to the SATA connector on the motherboard or SATA controller card. NOTE: If using a SATA controller card, be sure to follow the instructions that came with the card to install SATA host drivers. 2. Attach the larger end of the WD SATA cable directly to the SATA interface on the back of the WD drive as shown above. SATA connectors are keyed to ensure proper insertion. Also attach the legacy 4-pin power connector.
The WD SATA cable with SecureConnect does not supply power to the drive. When using the WD SATA cable, you must also attach the legacy ATA 4-pin power connector to the SATA drive. When using a standard SATA interface cable (not included) instead, DO NOT connect both the standard SATA cable (not included) and legacy ATA 4-pin power cable at the same time or the drive may malfunction. 3. Slide the hard drive into an available 3.5-inch drive MOUNTING THE HARD DRIVE bay and secure the drive with the four mounting screws (two on each side). For proper grounding, install the screws in the hole positions as shown. 4. Verify all cable connections. Replace and secure the system cover. Reconnect the power cord and power up the computer. 5. If your WD SATA drive came with a Data Lifeguard Tools CD, see Set Up Your Hard Drive on the reverse side of this poster to set up your new hard drive. If your hard drive kit did not include a Data Lifeguard Tools CD, see Alternate Instructions for Installing a Drive on the reverse side of this poster.
