Can I use the WD5000H1U-00 to transfer files from computer with 32 bit XP to new computer with 64 bit Windows 7


You definitely can, however it depends on the type of the files we are talking about here. If it's a video, music, and documents, the answer is yes you can. However, if you want to transfer the windows file and software settings, the answer is no. You can't cross-breed 32 bit and 64 bit platform. A possible alternative you can do is to use XPMode of your windows 7, given that you W7 is ultimate edition.

My Western Digital keeps asking to be formatted. I am unable to open the drive or reformat. What can I do?? I have a lot of files on this drive.


Hi, If you format the drive you will erase everything on it including your files. I would run your ant-virus you may have a virus on it. Second save all your files on a back-up disc. Then format the drive if you can. good luck.

the computer for some reason is not fully detecting the ext drive if its usb then try other usb connections. if it has sata hook up try using that there a much better connection but dont worry i think youl find that all your information is still on the ext drive thats why we should all use external drives for all our important photos music and files because when the pc blows or crashes then the other drive is not affected

p.s if the ext drive can with a driver disc try reinstalling it.

good luck

WD My Book wants to format


Sounds like the FAT has going bad and if you can take the drive out and manually connect it the motherboard as a Slave drive to the system, it may give you access to copy the files off.

Wd my book broken!!!


Hi naths99,

Not to worry, you haven't lost the drive, what you have done thou is you formatted over all the software that allowed the drive to mirror your data. But as I said all is not lost. Here's a link that will reinstall all the software that was originally there. HERE! Pick your My Book and away you go!


Good Luck

Be sure to plug the USB connector and the back of the CPU. Then go to Application folder if your running on OS X. Locate the disk utility, then double click it and see if your external drive have been detected. If it is detected try to repair it. and then thats it

Hi calicali,

Are you using Western Digital's built-in software to try backups, or just dragging or copying/pasting manually?
