    when I turn on my computer it says primary drive 0 not found. It was working. I tried trouble shooting at the seagate website, and it still doesn't work.

If hard disk is ok, the check the jumpers behind the hard disk before connecting to computer. it should be on slave if already a hard disk is installed and on master if the it is a single hard disk.

It could be because a virus has infected your usb drive or your hardware id is corrupted. Try to plug it into another pc, if you can a Linux OS one and see if it picks it up. If not then chances are that your hdd read sector has gone.

I plugged in my 1TB WD hardrive and noticed that it did not show up as the name I had renamed it instead it showed up as Local Disc. When I try to access it it just crashes windows, I tried this on my...


It could be that the drive was infected by a virus. The Virus dumps an file with the name autorun.inf onto the drive and everytime u plug the drive into a pc - it wants to run the virus that autorun points to.

Try something - unplug the hard drive, then press the SHIFT key and while holding it, plug in your hard drive. DONT let go of the shift key until the drive has been detected (around 10 seconds should be find) then let go of the shift key - if the drive shows up under "my computer" DONT double click on it to open it as that will jsut run the virus again ... instead .. RIGHT click on the driver and choose explore. If you can see the drive this time - it is a virus and the best option is to remove the virus or format the drive - post another question if this does not work.

Good luck

I have the same drive that I re-format periodically.
You can format it just as you would any hard-drive.
Plug it in - go into My Computer - Right Click on drive - Use "format" or "Properties"

WD external drive is not opening usb


If by USP, you mean USB, then this is not possible. The drives USB ports are only for extra storage and not meant for communication to a PC. You can try connect the drive directly to the PC with a network cable and then map it as a network drive.

To do this, right click on my computer and select 'map network drive'. In the folder option type \\**name of the device**\public and then select 'finish'.

**name of the device**: If you have changed the name previously, you should use that name for it. Ig you have not changed the name, then the default names are either mybookworld, so \\mybookworld\public or 'wdstorage', so \\wdstorage\public.

If you have created your own shares and wish to map them, just replace the public share with the share you want.

The drive will appear in my computer and you can access your data.

Hope this helped!

Multiple Western Digital My Book 1 Tb not registering


The naming wouldn't affect the drives appearing. Sometimes, the drive letters can become a problem (from experience). This happens when both drives try to occupy the same letter. Open disk management and check to see if both drives are visible at the top. If so, manually, right click on one of them and select "change drive letter and path". Select something, you know isn't normally occupied.

I did not recieve any software or instructions on how to install my external hard drive model WD10000H1Q-00


Hi, perhaps this will help, I have just bought a WD Elements  hard drive,with install instructions. Step 1.Plug the usb cable into your pc and the other end into the hard drive. Step 2.Plug the power adaptor into the hard drive and then the other end into the mains. Step 3.Now switch on the main power.Your pc will now tell you it has "Found New Hardware" and will then show under" Hard Drive Disks" your hard driveand asign it a name and a letter eg.Elements(L:)
