I bought the same product, I noticed that connecting the device to the USB ports at the back of the PC body and using shorter cable solved the problem, try each of the ports at the back of the PC.

The WD external hard drive should have a folder with autorun on it, just turn plug and play back on.

External hard disk WD 500gb icon absent in my computer window?


Turn the computer off without the external hard drive being plugged in.
plug the external hard drive in a usb port, power up, the systems post boot up will find the drive and inform windows what hardware is installed.
When windows boots up, it will look at all the hardware and find the external hard drive, when windows finishes booting up you should be able to see the drive in my computer.

If you can't access your files,data recovery software can help.I used this one called Tenorshare Data Recovery to retrieve files off crashed HDD and it worked. Get it from http://www.any-data-recovery.com
If needed,you can download it and scan your hard drive for free to preview whether your files can be recovered.

Do I need a disc to install


This is a external hard drive and no need for you to install any software to a computer in order for it to work , this is a plug and play device you just need to wait for the computer to recognize it after you plug it to a USB port and once its recognize its ready to use.

I bought a new WD Elements 350gb external hard drive and it came with a Memeo software CD. It says to insert CD before starting backup. I do not appear to be able to use this external hard drive as a plug...


This software is not linked with the drive (with this particular drive you only get a trial version anyway). Just remove the software from your PC.

Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs > Remove Memeo/ WD Anywhere Backup.

Once you have done that, you can delete everything on it (assuming you never manually put something on it apart from the backup). If so, back it up onto your PC, another drive or CD.
