So, I believe it does sound right?
Try to copy them back to your PC and open them from there.
If you can't then it seems you have bad sectors.

I have a WD 1TB My Book Essential for Mac. It was working wonderfully until last night, my husband opened the drive on our iMac and was able to access the files on the drive; however, when he attempted to...


Hi there,

Did he try to recycle the files using the iMac? because sometimes if you recycle the files it will show that it was deleted from the harddrive but in reality they will remain there but the are hidden. I think the best way to check if the drive is full is to plug this drive to a computer that has a Windows operating system and make sure to show hidden files and delete all hidden folders that you will see in the drive to free the space completely.

Hope you find this helpful!

PROBLEMS WITH MY WD BOOK


Hi, This post might be of some help/idea... http://www.fixya.com/support/t191153-device_recognized The only difference is your model uses Western Digital and not Seagate. Yours can still be recognized but Windows consider it non-formatted. First try a data recovery software and another storage medium where you can copy the files if you're successful in the recovery. Good luck and kind regards.
