WD My Book is Unreadable... Please Help!!
So AFTER you formatted it on the PS3 you were able to connect it to your PC and view files? If so, sounds like the drive has gone bad.
If you don't care about what's on the drive, I'd reformat it. If that works, I'd no longer trust it for files I care about.

Western Digital HDD I need softwear to install WD5000G032
Their is no software for it, nor their is any requirement for any software to use this device, its a plug and play device like a flash drive. Just make sure you turn on the power for this thing before you connect the usb cable to it and then to the computer and you will see a device poping up if you have the My Computer window open up. If it does not come up then it means your new device is bad, simply get it replaced.

Not showing my external hard drive
I HAVE SOLVED THE PROBLEM! or at least this works for my my book 1tb external hard drive. when i initially connect it i get the 'new device detected' pop up thing, but then it doesn't show on my computer. However, I have found that keeping the device pllugged into the computer but removing then replacing the power source from the device causes it to show up. That's all I did, unplug the power cord on the back and replace it. The computer says 'new hardware detected' and 'found my book mass storage device,' then it appears on my my computer tab. Hope this works with you as well!

well if you formatted it and want to recover the information that was on it there are several programs you there that can do just that. first...stop trying to fix it. here are some links for the software to recover your files and programs/data.
here is the instructions
let me know how this comes out. just know the actual recovery percentage without loss is around 97.3%. meaning that not all files are recoverable.
If you have any problems let me know and please leave positive feedback for me.

Unable to access external WD 500 Gb drive: "You need to format the disk"
It seems vista is the problem. On older operating systems the disk's work fine. My dis was formatted with vista and as a result showed exactly the same message when plugging it into a xp system. Back on the vista it works fine. The ntfs is native to win NT/xp there might have been changes in vista. Also do not use the firewire cabling, i had numerious problems until i reverted back to the usb.
