    Which model hard drive exactly do you have? Your post title says an 80 Gb but your post body indicates a 500 Gb.

Why is there a question mark on my WD My Book 500 external Hard drive short cut?


Wow, Im amazed at the guy who threw his WD into the freezer for a week after a fatal crash and was able to get most of his stuff back! I was so frustrated after my second WD crashed that I gave up and used it as a door stopper. I was too bummed out to even bother returning it for an exchange, and when I did think of doing that, it was too late. I decided never to buy WD again, their drives are pure junk!

No power on WDelements WD5000


It's not a new hard drive casing that you need, rr_atl, it's a replacement power supply. Western Digital is well know for selling very poorly manufactured power supplies with this hard drive series. The problem you described is a bad power brick.

How to extact the data off the Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320GB HD


if its your motherboard that crashed then ther is no problem with your hard disk. connect your hard disk to any other computer and you can access all the files in it.
if it is your harddsik that crashed then try recovery utilities like western digital data storege manger or any other disk recovery tool available for free. if still it fails then you can recover your data if you hand over your hard disk to the nearest service centre. but recover from a hard disk only if its very valuable. thay will charge you per MB of data recovered

Western Digital External Hard Drive Won't Boot Up


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.

Windows XP crashes when I plug in My Book


Did you buy it from a store or somebody you know? if you bought it from someone you know..it could just be a hunk of junk or have a virus in it or something. if you bought it from the store...make sure its compatible with your computer. if it is compatible and it still doesnt work....try calling customer service or just go to where you bought it and exchange it for a different one. hope this helps!

Thank you sir


You need a place that can repair a hard drive. Geek Squad doesn't do that. You could Google something like:

Hard drive repair in Seattle.

Replacing Seattle for wherever you live.

Hope that helps you out.
