Question about Western Digital MyBook Studio 1 TB USB Hard Drive

1 Answer

MyBook 1TB will not power on anymore. I have(had) mydocuments pointed to it and it has worked fine until today. My pc said it could not open the selected drive because it was not there. So I unplugged the external hd (MyBook) and plugged it back in after about 15 seconds and it will not even power on.

    I have tried all that but still no juice.

    I was trying to say it didn't fix the problem without hurting your rating...sorry bro.

    I got it from tigerdirect.com...think they will take it back? Was it just the power adapter on yours? I plugged it into another outlet and the light on the adapter comes on but still nothing on the HD. Worst come to worst I may just have to get another one and slave it to the new one. btw i changed the rating if it matters.

I have the same drive guy. take a voltage meter and test the power adpator and see if your getting the right power to the unit. Check your usb ports as well even try it on another computer to diagnose your own. Try these steps good luck

Samsung 1tb external will not allow my computer to boot


Try checking your bios to see what harddrive the computer boots from.
Your PC might be trying to boot from that samsung story which I assume doesn't have an OS installed.

Have you tried different cables or a different port on your router. Is there any way to get into the Hard Drive by connecting it directly to a PC and checking the network settings or anything..? If not, then you may have to connect it directly to a PC and share it to your other PC's.

Video files on MyBook 1TB hard drive lag


So, if you move the file that won't load onto your laptop it then loads? If so can you plug it into another mac and see if it works on that one (if it works it an issue with your macs firwire ports and an os re-install may be needed or your card has been damaged) or can you try another hardrive with your mac (if this works you need to reformat your mybook)? I've bined a HD this year already, not good.

WD 1TB working properly for some time


Make sure the power supply (power brick) for the mybook is working. (unplug both ends or the power cable and plug back end)

do the same for the USB cable. Still no luck? Plug the USB connector into a different port on the PC and see if that changes your luck.
