It doen not turn on completly. The green light blinks about every 5 seconds but doesn't turn on.


it is not getting enough power. Use a two ended USB plug (both ends into computer) one into HD, or use external power adapter

It was working fine and then I went to turn it on


If you're connecting a known-good power supply to the MyBook, and it's not turning on... I suspect that the MyBook has died. You should replace it or have it serviced. If the data on it is very important, it might be worth taking the drive apart and removing the hard drive inside and trying to recover data. If the data isn't important, I would say the MyBook is dead. Sorry.

DOES NOT POWER UP


the connections where the power cord goes is may be the culprit , troubleshoot the unit by first checking its transformer on the wall outlet try another power supply to confirm that the power source is not the problem second check your units power connector take apart your closure make sure that all the wires are connected and everything is in place you'll probably find the problem

My Western Digital My Book Essential Edition 500 GB hard drive was working fine, until the power cord was removed accidentally. Now I can't get any computer to recognize the drive when I plug it in the USB...


Is the power light on, if not replace the power supply.
I f you have light then your hard drive is shot or the circuit inside the box is fried.
If it is out of warranty and you have another Western Digital Sata drive handy you can swap it with the one inside to see if the drive is bad.
Good luck.

WD Notebook Hard disk power problem


The power cord connects to a little circuit board inside the case, and the hard drive itself connects to the board. I would think that if you damaged anything it would be the board but not the drive. You could try taking the drive out of the case and connecting it directly to your computer (or you could get a computer shop or computer geek friend to do it if you don't feel up to it). If the drive itself isn't damaged you will be able to read your data.

My book not recognized by windows


I had a similar problem that I just fixed. The drive was not being recognized at all - I unplugged, rebooted, switched to different computer, used different usb cable, plugged into wall outlet, NADA!

Then I tried something else - I just bought 2 more external hard drives and I switched the power port from the new one to the old one and the hard drive was recognized. I plugged the old outlet into the new hard drive and that worked, too. PHEW!

I had almost 100Gbs of music on there!
