You will need to find the drivers for the lan card. They would normally be on the mother board cd if you have one.

Western Digital produces a line of external hard drives known as "My Book," designed primarily for use as part of a data backup regimen or general data storage.


These drives are compatible with both Macintosh and Windows computers, but you may need to perform some work on the device in order to get it working as desired with your specific system.
Reformatting

Western Digital's My Book drives come formatted with use for a particular type of computer. Therefore a drive sold for use with a Macintosh may not work out of the box with a PC, and vice versa.

In such cases, you will need to reformat the drive for use with your system.


On a Macintosh, you can reformat a PC drive using the Disk Utilities application, found in the Utilities subfolder of the Applications folder.


Set the number of partitions you wish to divide the drive into, and choose "Apple Partition Map" and "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)" from the list of options.


To reformat a Macintosh drive on a Windows computer, use the Disk Management window.
Start by right-clicking on the desktop icon labeled "My Computer," then select the option labeled "Manage."


Review the listings, and select the drive entry that corresponds to your My Book.

Right-click on a volume's blue bar to delete that volume from the drive (make sure you have the right drive selected).


When the blue bar turns black, right-click on it and select "New Simple Volume" to launch a wizard that will guide you through the rest of the reformatting process.

Drivers and USB 3.0


The My Book does not require the installation of any special driver software in order to work with your computer.


However, if the data transfer rates seem slower than expected, you may wish to check that your computer's USB drivers are up to date.


Some models of the My Book are capable of operating at USB 3.0 speeds, but if your system is using USB 2.0 drivers, this can affect performance.


You can generally find the latest drivers for your computer by visiting the manufacturer's website; look for a link to a "Downloads" or "Support" page.


Searching for your computer's specific model number may help as well.


If you've built your own computer from scratch, check the motherboard manufacturer's website. If your computer does not come with USB 3.0 installed, you can install an adapter card into one of the motherboard's available PCI-e slots.


These cards come packaged with special drivers of their own, and installers are also often available at the manufacturer's website.


if its a usb external drive you might need a usb 3 card installed on your computer your computer might not have enough usb output power


USB 3 card will provide more power when needed to the device to gain maximum throughput and conserve power when the device is connected but is idling

Hard disk drive not detected


firstly check your cable connections, then log onto your bios setup menu during startup and check whether the Hard drive is detected by your bios, if it is then you can try to format the harddrive using the ntfs system (use the long formatt) if you are using windows xp or later if using any earlier os then formatt with the FAT32 system.
If your HDD is not detected by the bios then try to download bios updates for your motherboard and install thed in windows. is this does not work then its time to get a new HDD. thanks

Installing new hard drive


hi,

its brand new right? have it reformatted for the first time. you can do this by installing an OS and it prompts you to reformat it. actually, there are other ways to do that but for me, this is the most secure way to reformat a new harddrive in your situation.

hope this helps.
