WinXPPro ASR Restore does not access WD Mybook RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running WinXPPro with SP3.  I have replaced my hard drive beause the old one crashed.  I have ASR backups on a WD MyBook.  When doing an ASR Restore using my original WinXPPro CD with SP1, the drive is formatted and Windows components are installed.  When the file selection window comes up to select a backup file, the WD MyBook is not one of the devices on the list.  There is only the hard drive, the floppy, and DVDRW drive.

    I am not using a USB hub or extension cable.  I have an MSI KT4V MS6712 ver 10A system board. I have the latest BIOS update installed and the WD Mybook appears as a drive in the BIOS Setup.  The ASR backups were originally done directly to the MyBook, not copied later.

    How can I get the MyBook to be recognized and restore the ASR Backup file?
