SOURCE: Computer freezes on start-up when western digital

This is a known problem with these drives. Disabling USB legacy support in your Bios should solve the problem., it did in my case but at the expense of not being able to boot from a USB device. Definitley a problem with their enclosure or drive.

SOURCE: WD 1TB My Passport Essential is unusable.

This error comes up when the drive is formated by a different operating system, and yours can not read it. You will need to format it to be read by your current system, but you will lose any data on it. The only other option is to find out what it was formated for, Windows or MAC, and hooking it up to that computer.
With a Windows system, once you hook it up, open explorer (not internet explorer). You will see that drive on the right side, right click on it and choose the format option. Once it has been formated, you will be able to use it.

J book not recognized

if it is new, yes -- your OS should prompt you when you plug it in. if it isn't new (your data is currently on it), i wouldn't recommend initializing. your best bet is to remove the hdd from the enclosure and attach it manually if you are comfortable doing that. of course, it can't hurt to try 1) another usb port or 2) another computer first.

Need to reformat iomega 34275 from Mac to PC

Plug hdd to usb, after that, right click on my computer and go to manage, there go to disk management. You should see there all hard drives connected to your computer. Here localize your external hdd and see if it is initialized (you'l see in the right side of device the status), if it's not initialized right click on that area and initialize the hdd. After that go on the left side again right click and there could be two ways to format these hdd
1. if windows see something on hdd right click and go to format and follow the instructions from there
2. if windows don't see any partition there you must create one. Right click on hdd and select create new partition and after that follow instruction on your screen

I purchased a seagate expansion 1tb in 3.5". initially when i plugged it into an usb port,(LED lit) it doesn't recognized by my Vista home premium 64-bit. i plugged it and waited for several...

> I purchased

Brand-new, I presume?

> is it a failed HDD

Yes. Take it back to where you purchased it, and get them to replace it, under warranty.

> software problem

No. It shows-up in "disk-management" as a recognized, but not-yet-initialized, device.
Thus, all the software to support it has been correctly loaded.

Exercise the warranty.
