High-capacity DVR expander.
Connect the drive to your compatible USB or eSATA DVR to instantly create more storage for your TV shows, sporting events, and movies.

My Book AV with exclusive SilkStream technology delivers smooth video recording and playback and is optimized for the demands of reading and writing video in high-temperature entertainment center environments.

Store media for playback on
your TV.
Connect this AV-optimized drive to a game console, Blu-ray Disc player, or media player, like WD TV Live, to enjoy your media on your big screen TV.
A companion for your camcorder.
Transfer and store videos from your compatible camcorder without a computer, so you can record more and delete less.
Small enough to fit in your entertainment center.
The small My Book form factor fits neatly in your entertainment center. It can stand upright or lay horizontally, making it easy to neatly position your drive near your AV devices while maximizing airflow and minimizing heat around the drive.
Maximum flexibility.
My Book AV has both USB 2.0 and eSATA interfaces so your drive is compatible with most DVRs and other AV devices.

When used with a DVR, the My Book AV drive expands the recording capacity of a single DVR and cannot be also used as an expander with multiple DVRs or as storage for other AV devices.

Mouse over each icon to see how it was calculated.

Examples of the number of photos, songs, videos and any other files that can be stored on a hard drive are provided for illustrative purposes only. Your results will vary based on file size and format, settings, features, software and other factors.

As used for storage capacity, one megabyte (MB) = one million bytes, one gigabyte (GB) = one billion bytes, and one terabyte (TB) = one trillion bytes. Total accessible capacity varies depending on operating environment. As used for buffer or cache, one megabyte (MB) = 1,048,576 bytes. As used for transfer rate or interface, megabyte per second (MB/s) = one million bytes per second, megabit per second (Mb/s) = one million bits per second, and gigabit per second (Gb/s) = one billion bits per second.
