Are there any files on the hard drive that are your and you want to keep. the one thing you can try is formatting the hard drive but doing that completely wipes everything on the hd.

ALSO if you do this and alter the software on the hd, make sure that it does not effect your warrenty

to format, go to my computer --> right click on the hd you want to format --> click on format and then change the necessary options and then click format.
this should get rid of the files that are on the hd

I installed a new hard drive in my PC. It installed itself after I turned on the computer but it doesn't seem to show up on My Computer as a individual drive. BIOS and the Sys Info recognizes there is a...

Are you sure your BIOS is not showing the old hard-drive you had before you installed the new one?

On the new hard-drive you bought, do the following step

there should be a jumper that came with it, put the jumper to "master",
if that didn't work, put it to "slave", if that didn't show up, put it to "cable select" and try it.
If all failed, totally remove the jumper and try.
Also check in the BIOS to make sure that the Drive is not disabled.
This seems to be a problem from the jumper.

Please rate 4 stars if this helped you.

It has to do with the motherboard. If it isn't a USB 2.0 port it will not recognize the drive you will have to change the motherboard or the cheaper thing to do is put a PCI to USB card in the computer.I had the same problem with a buddy's computer.

How dues it work just plug it in thats all, all how do you put programs on it and then play them back later,

Hi there,

This device is equipped with something called UPNP which stands for Universal Plug N' Play which means that you just need to plug this device in and it will work. Although for some operations to work properly you may have to install a driver which usually comes wit the device on a CD Rom.

Once this device is installed, it should show on your computer when you go to "My Computer". It should be displayed as a portable drive and will probably be called something like "Removable Disk (D:)".

Now when you want to access the device you just double click on it in "My Computer" and you will e able to see all the information on the device. When you want to put games on the device, when installing you must save it on the device and it will be installed on there.

Thank you for using FixYa! Have a nice day and please remember to rate this solution.

Warm regards,

My computer does not show glyph drive aftwer its connected

I had not created even a primary partition for my Glyph drive which I needed to do. So I created a new partition and seleected the maximum size for it which was all 500GB of the drive, since I dont want any real divisions of the drive; then I selected quick format. This is actually on the questions on how to format the drive, it will telll you about this step of creating a primary partition (or even more partitions if you want them).

No cd included with hard drive, how do i install?

normally you dont need any software to install the HD if its a newer computer (last couple of years) just check your jumper settings, it should show you on the HD where to put the jumper for master / slave.

If your putting it in as a second HD for more space you will want to put the jumper on the back of the drive to "slave" and attach it to the same cable as the hard drive in your computer already.

How do you set up multiple WD Anywhere users on the network to share the same MyBook World Edition


-No WD Anywhere allows 5 users I think.
This could only be the solution, if you installed WD Anywhere on other PCs before

Check out the MioNet site, think they give options for new users.
if this is not the problem, I don't have a solution by now.
