Question about Western Digital My Book Home Edition 500 GB USB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Restore Pictures I recently pulled my pictures from my external harddrive (Western Digital My Book Home edition) and now I can't view them on my computer's hard drive. I see the appropriate folders, but when you drill into them, the folders show that they're empty. But when you do a properties check, the folders show that they are storing something. How do I view the pictures hidden within the folders? By the way, I already tried the hidden files option. It didn't work.

Right click on the image..should tell you what they are..in meantime, I recommend Picasa from google.com, which is a nice little photo product manager.

How do I save pictures from my computer ( Picasso) to the external Hard Drive. I plugged it in the appropriate parts but even though I highlighted a batch of pictures I can only save 1 picture at a time


If you open the window to your external hard drive you should be able to highlight the pictures you want to save, then left click and hold on the highlighted pics and drag them over to the external drive. Be sure to put them in a folder on the external drive.

1 TB External drive, unable to open (data of 80% is there)


You can't format without loosing data. You should get a professional data recovery company to look at the drive. http://techrxgb.com is my recommendation.

Take it our of the external encasing and plug it in directly to your motherboard. This has worked for me in the past. I just had my second wd external harddrive crash so now I will do the same process all over again.
