Question about Western Digital Computers & Internet
I have a problem with My Book Essential 1 Tb, the system doesnt see the partitions i can see the hdd in the device menager but only there, after using the WD Data Life Diagnostic i got "Status code = 06 (Failed servo an/or seek test element), Failure Checkpoint = 97", i tooked out the hdd from the plastic casing and plugged it in to my desktop, now while the system is loading i can see that the hdd is normally on the list of devices, but the partitions aren't visible, if it would be an internal problem with the servo mechanism if it would be possible to repair it?

To save your data from a bad Wd Ebook you need to download UBUNTU and burn it to a cd. Boot from the cd. Do not install Ubuntu just click try it out. When it loads turn on your Ebook and iit should appear on the desktop. If not click the places tab on top and find it there. Right click the EBook and mount it. Now you have access to all the data on the ebook. Iy yoou have enugh space n your cpu hard drive save it there, if not you will need another surce large enought to copy the data to.. I have used this method to save many hard drives, flash drive and other unreadable media. if the drive is totally toast you are out of luck but this method works moost of the time. Any questions drop me an email.

NO, they are not all multivoltage. Especially if you bough *** in the states as a 110v. You will need to have an external voltage adaptor in use.

You must format the drive as FAT32
Note that your drive is too big to be formatted as a single 2TB FAT32 partition, its basically too big for PS3 usage.
but I think we should be able to get it to work.
You need to create one big partition off the drive, you can do that by connecting the drive first to your computer and then, right click on my computer or computer and select manage. Then on the right side of the computer management window you need to click on Disk management.
On the right side you need to find your 2TB externall hard drive, delete all the partitions from it so that its entirely free space or unpartitioned space, then create a new volume, full size of the drive, do not format it, if it doesn't let you pass without formatting then make sure its on quick format and fat32.
