If this drive is only for storage it can be set as a slave drive. If it will have the OS installed and will be the boot drive it has to be set as master. Set the jumpers accordingly. If a different drive is the master you might check the jumpers on that also. I have seen some drives with a (master/slave present) jumper that might need to be changed as well. Most WD drives have a jumper settings diagram on the case.

Question about retreiving data from external hard drive.


There are no problems hooking a external hard drive to any computer. If you mean take the hard drive out of the external case and putting it inside of your computer with a SATA cable, you can do that to. If your worried that they are both Western Digital, there are no conflicts with that either.

Good Luck

How do I change my WD5000G032-001 external hard drive's IP address?


Very few external disk-drives _have_ an IP-address (the Apple Time-Machine is the exception). For those drives that do,
they obtain their IP-address automatically, by sending a 'request' out through their network-connection. A DHCP ('Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol') server on the network sends an IP-address to it. Most 'home' routers (wired or wireless) include the DHCP-server functionality.

So, the only way to change the IP-address is to configure the DHCP-server to always assign the desired IP-address whenever that specific device sends a 'request' for an IP-address.

Western Digital HDD I need softwear to install WD5000G032


Their is no software for it, nor their is any requirement for any software to use this device, its a plug and play device like a flash drive. Just make sure you turn on the power for this thing before you connect the usb cable to it and then to the computer and you will see a device poping up if you have the My Computer window open up. If it does not come up then it means your new device is bad, simply get it replaced.

Want directions on how to backup to western digial external hard drive. We use microsoft vista and we have a 500gb external drive.


This may vary, depending on the software you use, but if it's Vista backup and restore, follow the steps below:
  1. Open Backup and Restore Center by clicking the 'Start' button, clicking 'Control Panel', clicking 'System and Maintenance', and then clicking 'Backup and Restore Center'.
  2. Click 'Back up files', and then follow the steps in the wizard (during this process, you will be given an option to select the destination for your backup - Browse for the WD drive in my computer and select it). You will also be given the option to select which files you would like to backup - You can either select everything or you can select specific folders (an option for browsing will be available), you may want backed up. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
Hope this helps.

I have brought a Western Digital Drive WD5000G032 home from the office with a lot of backup data that was transferred to it over ethernet. I am trying to copy it to my home server for additional security...


It's a usb drive no drivers are needed. It may be blown if it's not showing up when you plug it in. When you transferred the data, was it plugged into the usb port and showing up as the drive that was receiving the data. I would check the machine that you used to transfer the data from it may have transfered it to a different drive, as this portable would have had to have been selected in the computer receiving the download or it would have gone to the C drive by default, and may be sitting on that computers drive.
