You can go as big as you want. just make sure you get a hard drive that is compatible.

one quick thing, i do not understand what "i can not get it to scan anymore it freezes up" means. If you can access windows at all the hard drive isnt dead. It may be on its way out though. So go buy a new hard drive the GB size doesnt matter, you can put what ever size in it that you want.

Good luck, hope this fixedya

CANNOT CONNECT TO PC


Some USB ports dont have enough power to power some drives. If this is a PC, try the ports at the back.

If that doesnt work, you can remove the drive from the case and purchase a usb to sata cable.

Dropped my super droppable protected 160 drive,now the light flickers when plugging to pc but not working


bro.. this could be because it got disconnected from the circuit inside it...
just open up the casing and you will find a laptop hard disk with a circuit attached to it ..
just try to make the connection firm again by removing the circuit and putting it back again...
InshaAllah it will work fine again...
best of luck...

WD external HDD my passport 500 Gb . It's not correctly installed into my PC - PC can't find driver. System Windows XP


Maybe it's a power issue. Try a shorter usb cord or try a different usb port. If you are using an usb hub, try to connect the hard disk straight to the pc.

Help with MyBook 500 GB- it makes a clicking sound and does not appear on my MAC desktop.


You have a bad hard drive. The clicking is a giveaway that something is wrong. Replace the hard drive.
I hope you had backed up your data, otherwise it may be gone. It's very expensive to have data recovered from a bad drive.....hundreds, sometimes thousands of dollars.

My Book 1Tb will not let me put movies on it


I know exactly what your problem is. You are trying to add a file bigger than 4 GB on a fat32 external hard drive. You simply cant put something that big in there without breaking it into smaller bits. You could easily add a bunch of small files just not huge files bigger than 4GB.
Your solution would be to reformat your WD external drive to a ntfs. That can be done as easy as right clicking your external drive through my computer and highlighting "reformat". Good luck and I hope you dont forget this little thing about computers..sometimes when you get a good deal on pc hardware its for a reason :)
this is good for all hard drives including western digital
