I would suspect that, with what you have done so far, the WD drive or it's power supply is getting very flakey. I would do like PSmith suggests and test it on a PC. WD has software you can download to do this.
Also I would get another new drive and try it on your 722.

I had an external drive that had a power supply that failed, not Western Digital but can happen to any drive. The voltage out was still proper but just couldn't supply enough current to keep it spinning.

PS. I found a compatible power supply at a local PC store and drive is now working again.
