Question about Western Digital My Book Essential Edition (WDG1U5000N) 500 GB Hard Drive
I have had my 500gb hard drive for 6 months now and have never had a problem but all of a sudden it has stopped working! if I plug it in (to just power or power and computer) it doesn't work at all! the green light on the front is blinking really fast (not normal) and nothing is happening.
what can I do?
please help! I need to get it working tonight because I have a lot of work to get done!
It sounds like it's failed, and needs to be replaced, WD will ship you a new one if you give them a credit card, then you can send that one back, don't forget to send it back though, or they'll charge you several times what you could buy a new one for at your local shop.
