    I did continue and the driver shows up in my drivers, however when I click on it, I'm advised that the driver could not be loaded(error code 31). I have another My Book(1TB) and it self loads fine(it is newer). Thanks for your help.

If you dropped the drive, you can send it to http://techrxgb.com and they can try to "un stick" the damage on the drive. It certainly will cost you a few dollars, but it's possible your data is okay.

MY WD5000c032 drive worked for two years and now I am unable to detect it at all. I have tried three cables with no success


Either the drive or the case has gone bad, if its the case you can get external case from new egg for about 20 bucks and put the drive in that case to continue using it.

Call Western digital, try online chat. The size of your unit would make the item be under warranty. REcover all data from the drive and then you could reformat it. It depends on whether you use the unit's software or not...

My book home edition,in "my computer" "F" says disk not formated


The poewr supplies are horrible in this brand, I had to remove two WD drives from the external cases and install them internally to access the data, even when the fan and lights would come on. try to test the drive internally in a desktop, and then you can back up the contents as well

Disk is not formated.


You can check on Western Digitals website and see what kind of utilities they have for that hard drive as far as diagnostics, repair, and recovery are concerned.

You could try another computer and see if its doing the same thing?

If neither option works you may have not choice but to format the problem to get the hard drive repaired and working again.
