Hi, Initially, allow Windows to install automatically drivers or needed configuration, then perhaps you need to reboot. Thereafter check if it can be seen in My Computer, otherwise, pls post back for any messages or errors. Good luck and kind regards.

Yes. The case doesn't care what size the drive is. The computer is just asking for the USB driver for the case. Check the WD site for the driver for the model of MyBook that you have. That should cover it.

First check if your WD is running (spinning), no matter if the blue light is on. Can you hear it close with your ear, or feel vibrations on your hand when it starts.
If it runs, then check/replace the USB cable you are using with another.
Check the Power supply if it gives necessary power.
If you are familliar with disassembling/assembling, then open and remove the HDD from the box and try to connect the disc directly to your PC (using another HDD Data/Power cables).
If it runs, and you can acces it, then something is wrong with the Box.
If it doesn't, then the HDD is broken or damaged.
Please note that if your device is under warranty, DO NOT open the box ! Contact your seller for service/replacement instructions.

A common issue...I'm sure your hard drive is working fine, Windows is just not giving it an unused drive letter.
1. Insert the device (camera or usb drive)
2. Right-click "My Computer" and select "Manage".
3. Click on "Disk Management"
4. Right-click the item in the list that looks like your camera or usb drive, and then click "Change Drive Letter and Paths."
5. Click "Change".
6. Give it a drive letter that is not being used.
7. Click OK.
The device should work instantly after that.
