How i fix my WD My Book Live 3TB

Two days ago my NAS WD My Book Live  died. I think because an energy problem.  I bought an USB to SATA adapter and follow the instructions bellow.

The steps worked for a My Book Live 3TB. You need to open and disassembly and extract the HD.  If data partition is not ok, you will loose all data.

1) Download the virgin disk image (02.41.05-034) (203MB) from!FZkASQ6T!P3DMWzaOn62jSrG4SECtIDeJeLYEdmz6w6kR9it8U68599

2) Extract with 7-zip and you should have a file called mybook3tb.img

3) Format an 8GB+ thumbdrive or external usb hard drive to NTFS and copy mybook3tb.img to it

4) Download SystemRescueCd and burn it to a CD

5) Shut down your computer and remove the cable from your computers hard drive so we don’t erase it by mistake  ### Verify your discs on gparted before proceed and write down the names of /dev/sd…  ####

6) Hook up your MyBookLive to a SATA port on your motherboard or buy an eSATA to SATA cable or dock and hook up the drive that way. You can try a USB to SATA cable but success rates vary

7) Turn on your computer and tell it to boot from the CD drive

8) When the system rescue cd menu comes up, select to “directly start the graphical environment”

9) Open gparted and check to see where your MyBookLive shows under. In my case it shows up under /dev/sda
The drive should contain several EXT3 partitions and a rather large EXT4 partition

If your drive shows up under sdb, sdc, sdd etc.  just substitute the proper name for the drive when getting to
dd if=/mnt/usb/mybook3tb.img of=/dev/sda bs=1M (DON’T ENTER THIS COMMAND YET)

Now in gparted check to see where your thumbdrive shows up. In my case it shows up under /dev/sdb1
If it shows up under sdc1, sdd1, sde1, etc.  just substitute the proper name for the drive when getting to
mount -t ntfs /dev/sdb1 /mnt/usb (DONT ENTER THIS COMMAND YET)

10) In terminal type the commands below (Make sure you change sdb1 (For the thumbdrive or usb hard drive) and sda (for the MBL hard drive) to whatever they show up as in GPARTED)

mkdir /mnt/usb
mount -t ntfs /dev/sdb1 /mnt/usb
dd if=/mnt/usb/mybook3tb.img of=/dev/sda bs=1M

11) Look for any errors in the terminal window (output should look similar to below)
4420+0 records in
4420+0 records out

12) Logout of the SystemRescue CD and shut down the computer

13) Hook up the pcb to the MyBookLive hard drive and screw it down with 2 screws for now and then hook up the ethernet and power cord and try booting the drive again without putting it back in the case

14) Now from the dashboard do a Quick Factory restore to format the data partition

15) When the quick factory restore is complete power down the MyBookLive

16) Put the drive back together as you are done!
