I have WD My Book Essential 2 capacity 500 GB. Unfortunately everytime I connect it to the PC and power, does not show as a hard drive and has no driver. I backed up my files on it from the same computer...


you may have a bad drive,but first dose the drive power up not just light up can you hear the drive.
what you have in the box is just a nornal HD in an external box. you can if "absolutely nessesary " remove the HD and put it into your PC as a second drive.
but first you need to know if it is running and if the WD My Book power supple is working.
Have you tried using a different USB cable? a different power supply of the same Voltage & amps.

My Western Digital My Book Essential Edition 500 GB hard drive was working fine, until the power cord was removed accidentally. Now I can't get any computer to recognize the drive when I plug it in the USB...


Is the power light on, if not replace the power supply.
I f you have light then your hard drive is shot or the circuit inside the box is fried.
If it is out of warranty and you have another Western Digital Sata drive handy you can swap it with the one inside to see if the drive is bad.
Good luck.

I somehow deleted the setup for my drive G: (500 GB My Book). I can not locate the Cd nor the instruction manual that came with the drive when I purchased it almost 2 years ago..


If you running windows Xp or later just connecting the drive up should be fine. what exacty do you need to setup? normally when you power up the external drive and connect it to the PC via the USB it's automatically detected and seen as anoher drive (in your case G:) If you looking for an instruction manual just do a search on the Western Digital web site.

You should be able to take out the 3.5 drive that is inside and move it to a new enclosure (does not have to be WD) Tiger Direct has them. You can find them at BestBuy or online for less than $40

HOW TO CHANGE 320GB SATA HDD TO 500GB SATA


Yes. The case doesn't care what size the drive is. The computer is just asking for the USB driver for the case. Check the WD site for the driver for the model of MyBook that you have. That should cover it.
