I purchased Saturday afternoon via PayPal and have gotten anything. I have posted on the WDMarvel about this but got nothing.

Is this typical for this program?

I did get mine on the same day.

WDMarvel first key is necessary to log-in to the forum (and gain access to WDMarvel owners sections of the forum).

Hopefully you will get your key shortly.

Hope that you did get the lifetime license as it's very worth every $$$.

nickname (unprivlaged) is itelite

trans id 08Y13894VW6110157


Thanks I'm sure he is a busy guy.

I went with the 1 month to test a this point, but yeah no reason not to buy in for life if this goes well.

just a slow fix on a USB WD, so should go off without a hitch (hopefully ha)

WDMarvel is very worth every $$$.

I do love it's GUI and functionality. Very simple for starters and very powerfull even for pros. Of course i would love to have some SeDiv functions of it as well like the option to load SA from the drive itself (initialize from copy 0 - for example) but yet it's a very powerfull tool.

As for the slow fix instead of using the automatic function use this method instead :

I will alert Vlad about this issue.

I don't have WDR at this point. Not totally sure where to get that. Can you point me in the right direction?

As far as the "deal with slow drive" function in WDMarvel. Is it not identical in result to what you describe? Not doubting you in any way, just trying to understand if does some thing different than your posted method.

Thank you as always

Just a general question. I see that there is a firmware update available for this drive. I do believe i have plenty of use time to get it updated. I am consistently getting about 10 minutes out of it before it slows to a halt.

Is there any indication from WD that is is something resolved in a firmware update? I have to imagine they would be aware of and want to stop the failures.

There “may” be a chance they’ve made some updates to the firmware but chances are NOT, judging but the young age of the drives we are still getting with same/similar issues.

In any case, a fw update would be exactly that. An UPDATE and not a REPAIR :-(

Key has been received.

I ran the update. No change other than now it also mounts a virtual CDrom with the wd software on it

Hi there !!!

You shouldn't have updated the WD drive firmware.

This is a very bad move. You should have disabled re-location first (background media scan) and then power off/on and attempt to clone/image the drive.

I did reciev a message on WDMarvel forum saying that your key was sent.

You can check my guide and instead of using WDR that is very old and obsulete use the WDMarvel to clear the re-lo list instead.

Regards.
