Question about Western Digital MyBook Pro WDG1T5000 500 GB FireWire 400 (1394a) Hard Drive
I plugged in my mybook 500 GB external drive and the blue light did not come on like usual. Power outlet is working. All cables connected. No blue light. Help.
Same problem here....
changed USB port
changed power adapter
No blue light, no power on, no noise (not even a click)
Can one open the enclosure to mount the Sata HD with a USB adapter on Mac?

I think this is a quality issue- I have just had my drive replaced (after I had to pay to post it to Singapore...) and the new drive had died - powers up for 5 secs and then nothing.
Sounds like a warratny issue.

Hmmm...disconnect it from the computer and see if it is still unhappy at that point.
