But once bitten, twice shy. I think I'll back them up to a new network drive and then try the new driver. I suppose if I were more trusting I'd back up to the cloud.

I don't think photographers can use "the cloud", too much data and upload speeds too slow.  I've heard many horror stories.  I'm like you using local externals - I have one for data only, and two for complete systems, one of which is connected for monthly backups with the other kept at a remote location.  You have a nice My Book; I'm sure you can find a use for it if you can get it working ...
