Problems with Windows 7 (64 bit) & Western Digital's My Book Live
Some additional (hopefully helpful) information on the Western Digital My Book Live;
I have two Windows 7 computers in a home network. Both running Windows 7 Home Premium. One has the 32 bit version and the other has the 64 bit version. I don't seem to have any compatibility problems between the My Book Live and the 32 bit Windows 7 computer. However there are some 'nagging' problems with the 64 bit computer & My Book Live. Specifically the 1.6 version of the WD SmartWare software would not work right with it. After spending several hours with two different tech support levels, we backed up to the version 1.5 of the software. This worked, mostly. It still is not as easy and straight forward in it's operation as the software running on the 32 bit computer. And there are some minor problems that I haven't fully traced down yet.
Their Engineering Department is working on the problem so it should eventually get fixed. This is just a word of warning if you only have the 64 bit version of Windows 7. Also this is not the first time I've had problems with drivers and software not working properly with the 64 bit version of Windows 7.
