Hi, i am trying to set up a Western Digital My Book World Edition on my iMac. The iMac recognises the installation disc but I am unable to open it on the mac. I have looked on the WD website for downloads but there does not seem to be any for the WD world edition. Any help would be great

Try a complete uninstall and reinstall. Also double check to see that it is compatible to your Mac. It proboably is, but check anyways just in case. Stuff like this is more commonly overlooked than you think.

click start, control panel, system, hardware, then the device manager tab .
Open the universal serial bus controllers and right click on any of the "usb" root hubs.

You have experienced a system emergency shutdown. In otherwords, your computer crashed. You can:
1: reinstall your operating system.
2: use a OS recovery disk to reboot the system.
3: send the computer to a data recovery specialist.
4: return the computer if the warranty is still valid.

Good Luck!
