1. This could be a "Power related problem".
While you transfer data from with your HDD, make sure your your netbook is connected with an external power supply (Charger/Adapter.).

If it doesnt solve your pproblem, try updating your USB Drivers/ Chipset drivers. (All the Ex-HDD have Hi-Speed USB 2.0 port, may be your MoBo doenst have the relevant drivers to support your HDD.)

If this doesnt solve your problem, try contacting the HDD Manufacturer Support or replace it after recovering your files.


Thanks.

Remove the outer cover and try to connect hard drive directly to your desktop PC (if sata drive very easy to do that) and confirm the working of the HDD. If it is working you are lucky, change the controller else HDD fault

Bios not detecting 320gb sata drive


Double check the jumper configuration, You might also want to check the cables and ports incase that's the problem because a properly jumpered SATA drive shouldn't have any compatibility issues. Also check if *********** board supports the SATA ? Let me know if this works..thanks. Mike

Check to make sure you used a SATA hdd & not a SATA II hdd for your replacement. Usually these are not backwards compatible. Hope this helps.

HOW TO CHANGE 320GB SATA HDD TO 500GB SATA


Yes. The case doesn't care what size the drive is. The computer is just asking for the USB driver for the case. Check the WD site for the driver for the model of MyBook that you have. That should cover it.
