These older Western Digital MyBooks had bad components fail on there I/O cards inside the enclosure, your drive is most likely ok just the hardware failed. You can repair the board or put your drive in a Generic enclosure.

I have used this software and it worked. Paragon Partioning Magic http://www.download.com/Paragon-Partition-Manager/3000-2248_4-10070089.html Apparently the space on the WD was unformatted and unallocated, so it wasn't visible. After partitioning it, formatting it and allocating a drive letter, it workds like a charm.

How do I download pictures to my computor? I tried to use a cord to the USB port. I am using VISTA software on my computor.


If you have a usb connection from your phone to your pc and windows has recognised and installed all the necessary drivers, then go to my computer and you will see it appearing as a different drive there. Browse the drive and transfer what ever files you want to keep on your pc, whether it be an image, or a video etc. Hope this helps.

Can not connect my MEDION 8828 MD computor via a HDMI cable to my SAMSUNG ps42q97 hdx 42


use a vga connector. this tv doesn't support pc mode on hdmi. don't forget the 3.5mm stereo jack out fron your sound card to the 3.5mm input(next to vga on tv). you will get 1024x768 res.
