My 320gb western digital wont defrag as it says i have correupt files, it also wont let me copy to it as it keeps coming up with loads of error messages! Help! I cant even scan it!


Hi motleyshue ,
What you can do is copying all the files to an other HD or drive after having recovered the data with a specific recovery software :

or :

Your WD drive is probably defective and good for the recycing bin after these operations . Do not overwrite your existing data on it !

There is an i/o error on some images and music files, on WD passport external hdd


The disk-drive inside the case is "dying".
Try to copy all the files that you can, before it's completely "dead".

Then, if the drive is still under warranty, exercise the warranty to get a free replacement.

If not under warranty, WD has a "customer loyalty" program -- take the serial-number, and buy a new Passport from WD's web-site, citing the serial-number, to get a big discount on the purchase.

USB hard drive not recognized by Mac and by PC


Does the external drive work when connected to some _other_ computer? (Friend? Office? Home?)

It could be a failure either in the "hardware" inside the external-case (the USB adapter & interface)
or in the disk-drive "inside" the external-case.

So, a qualified technician can open the external drive, remove the disk-drive, and connect it directly to a computer, to see if the files can be "directly" read from the disk-drive.

If not, then you should search online for a "data recovery" service -- they are expensive, but they physically repair a damaged disk-drive, just long-enough to copy your data to another disk-drive.

WD passport 320GB Can I use it as storage, not backup?


You can use it as storage if you would like. You can also delete files once they are put on the passport. When it is connected to the computer open my computer and it will be listed there. You can use it as storage by copying files into this way rather than syncing it. Syncing it could cause you to lose files.

WESTERN DIGITAL 320GB PASSPORT USB PORTABLE


Doh

After posting the above, I found the answer on another forum about 10 minutes later. The WD drive is formated in FAT 32. My XP PC HDDs are formated in NTFS. FAT 32 has a 4Gb file size limit.

Answer. Format the WD drive in NTFS. It takes about 10 sec to do a quick format, but of course you lose all the content. Then You can copy anything you like to it. I have just copied a 33Gb video to the disc.
