    WD Network Drives

    Has anyone experienced an error message in Device Manager when installing the network attached storage drives like MyBook Live, the drives themselves seem to work fine and i have access to them (most of the time) on my home netwok, however i keep getting that little yellow triangle telling me that something is wrong, specifically:

    the device manager error code is This device cannot start. (Code 10)

    Most of the time that is a driver related issue. See here.....
