Question about Western Digital 500GB My Book World Edition 500 GB Hard Drive
I have this device for more than a year now and it was working perfectly. Suddently 3 days ago i see the drive on my computer but i cannot access it. When i highlight the drive it doesnt show the size as usual. I cannot access my files. Itried to power down the device by pressing the button but it doesnt have any effects. I had to unplug the cord and plug it back in. Sometimes the blue light comes up and sometimes it doesnt. The result is the same though, the drive is offline and i dont see it anymore on my computer. yesterday it worked when i unplug it and plug it back in, but now nothing seems to work. I tried to plug it straight on the power outlet then the device spins but not lights and no change. NOw the power button doesnt work at all. Dont know whats going on. It was working perfectly before. Sometimes i get the message "failed to mount".
It sounds like the hardware failed. If it no longer mounts or powers up then I would say the hdd crashed and died. Sorry.
