I have the same drive. It works great with windows XP but with Windows vista has difficulty seeing this type of drive and keeping the connection once it is established. Take it back if you have windows vista and then search for which 1TB drives work well with windows vista. It really has problems with windows vista 64bit. I was able to finally see the drive when I was using photoshop file/browse/network... then I dragged the shortcut Icon to my desktop and access the drive that way from that point on. Mine stopped completely tonight... I think the power cord went bad or something.

I have an WDG1NC10000N (Western Digital My Book World Edition 1TB) that was connected fine to my network. Not sure when it stopped being connected, don't access it all the time, but it became complete...


check the 'entire network' sidebar in My Network Places. I installed a new version of Mionet a little while back and it decided to rename my WorldBook and change it to a different network Workgroup without asking me. I freaked out for two days until I saw the other workgroup listed and checked it out. Viola, there was my NAS just waiting for me to find it.

Western Digital World Book 1TB - Lights don't light, HDD vibrates


I would try to connect the drive directly into an ide or a sata cable on the motherboard. Maybe using the western digital tools from their website you'll be able to access the data and copy it. I hope this helps you.

I have a home wireless network and am using a My Book World Edition external drive. Three of my laptops can access the My Book but one keeps returning the error network path could not be found. Any ideas...


If all other pc's are able to connect and the one odd pc will not, your problem may be the odd pc's ip configuration. Check the ip addressing in the control panel to correct this. I would recommend making the settings the same as the one from a pc that connects to the My Book connection.

Good Luck.

External HDD not working , but can here it running


Have you tried powering it up without connecting it to the computer?
It should at least power up and do something. After that try connecting it to your PC (with the disk powered up already).

You can further check this external drive troubleshooting article, which has some tips on trying to get external disks to work.
