Hello, I just buy an other drive, is the same as the other, is USB
boxed, so I have double problem, xD.

I try the instruction on this page:

I burn the CD with wdidle3.exe on, but when I execute I got this (the
drive is attached (USB):

WDIDLE Version 1.03
Copyright (C)...
Configure Idle3.
Model: HTS54...
Serial: MPB4P...
This is not a WD disk drive.

My drive is this:

Model Number:       WDC WD20EARS-00MVWB0
Serial Number:      WD-WCA.........
Firmware Revision:  51.0AB51
Transport:          Serial, SATA 1.0a, SATA II Extensions, SATA Rev
2.5, SATA Rev 2.6

How could I execute it?

Thanks and best regards.
