External WD drive died

Found this one at Best Buy:
Western Digital - My Book Essential 2TB External USB 3.0/2.0 Hard Drive

Is this drive Tivo compatible?

If it's the officially blessed WD the odds are good that the case has died not the drive (unless you're 101% sure) many folks have had success transplanting the WD official drive into the legendary Antec MX-1 case.

Also allow me to nitpick and point out that the external drives which are specifically intended for the TiVo connect via eSATA and not USB.

Which brings up are you sure the problem with the dead one isn't just the eSATA cable?

They have a less than steller reputation.
