    Anyone used the WDC utility to reload a MyBook back to factory ( Fat32 and
    programs)
    I had one that was flaky and got shipped a replacement. I copied the data to
    the new one, ran app to"write ones" to the old one and now that the original
    has no structure want to beat up on it a bit and if Ok prior to sending the
    bad one back I thought I\d use it to move some stuff between pc's here.
    I went to WDC site ( god awful) and downloaded diags, utilities etc and when
    I unzip/run the EXTFAT32 file to reload the drive I get " drive too small ".
    Is that because the drive size is zero - the partition was wiped and I
    didn't want to spend hrs initializing as NTFS. If it is EXPECTING it to be
    already formatted then I wouldn't need their utility.

    Anyone else tried this ?

    Thank You John,
    I think you saved me about 100 hrs of dealing with them.
    I'll download it right now.
