You don't, without voiding the warranty, if you want to void the warranty, you'll have to crack the case along the seams where it's sonic welded together.

    I'm sorry you feel that's not helpful, it's not designed to be opened and worked on, there's no screws or clips, the plastic is welded at the seams so you have to crack the seams open, that's the only way to open it.

    what kind of answer are you looking for? 'with a knife or other sharp object'?

This is a sign of a failing drive. Its probably, bad sectors; or a pcb that is about to fail. I would advise you to backup this up promptly. http://techrxgb.com for more information on data recovery.

Hi. If you here some clicking noise then your external hard drive might be busted already.

Try to contact a local tech and see if he can still pull out your data from there.

Hope you'll be able to extract your files back.

Have a great weekend!!!

Can't find set up on my computer


Does your drive make any unusual sounds like any of these: http://datacent.com/hard_drive_sounds.php ?
If yes then you got a problem - it's something mechanical with the heads.
If it sounds normal or doesn't spin up at all - try to connect it to another computer and if still no go - remove the internal drive from enclosure and connect directly to PC via SATA port.

Western digital my book 320gb not recognised


Try first disconnecting all USB ports and power plug for half an hour, this will get rid of eventual problems caused by electrostatic charges on usb channels.
If it does not work, this means that the virus has corrupted your Windows System, probably the root hub is defective.
In this case you will have to reinstall windows, either using recovery, from disk or partition, or using a Microsoft windows setup disk. Save all your data before reinstalling.
