Does it make any clicking/clunking sounds like any of these?
If yes - it's really bad. If it sounds normal then try to remove it from enclosure and connect directly to a PC.

Western digital my passport 320 file path too deep


The "path" is the full name of a file or a folder, e.g.,

C:\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5

If the path has too many characters, you get the error-message that you reported.

If you can, rename one of the folders, using a shorter name.

HOW TO CHANGE 320GB SATA HDD TO 500GB SATA


Yes. The case doesn't care what size the drive is. The computer is just asking for the USB driver for the case. Check the WD site for the driver for the model of MyBook that you have. That should cover it.
