Warrenty will be void if you open the casing
but warrenty for hdd will remain .. so if under warrenty get it replaced, as it is, if data required the warrenty should not be concidered and data recovered, probably the hard drive may not have got damaged , so dont get fooled if some one says data recovery . if you cannot do it hire an expert guru for data recovery.

google western digital and dowload the drivers again, then reinstall from disc if you have one! (do this with the drive un-plugged) when you then re-boot and plug it in all should come right!

My western digital external hardrive will not appear on my computer any hints for me please.


Does it show up as a drive in the Device Manager?

You might look in Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management

Go in Disk Management along the left side...

You might have to make it into a Basic Disk ... before it gets a drive letter. Trying to remember what I just did in Vista when I got a Seagate FreeAgent external USB drive. Mine was already NTFS formatted, I would imagine yours would be too.

Capactiy of external hardrive


That's normal. Storage manufacturers consider 1 GB at 1 billion bytes (1,000,000,000 bytes).

Computers, however, use base-2 arithmetic, and one kilobyte is 1024 bytes, one megabyte is 1024 kilobytes, and one gigabyte is 1024 megabytes. This all multiples to 1 gigabyte according to the computer is 1024^3 or 1,073,741,824 bytes.

Take 320,000,000,000 and divide it by 1,073,741,824 and you get 298.023223876953125, so your computer says your "320GB" drive is 298GB.

There's a standard for base-2 (binary) measurement terminology (gibibytes, mebibytes, kibibytes, etc), but few people seem to use it.
