I have had this problem in the past with my external harddrive. You have to go into the bios and turn off legacy usb. But if you have a usb mouse or keyboard (wireless or wired) they won't work. But your pc should bootup with the harddrive plugged in. This was how I fixed the problem with my WD My Book 750GB but I can't promise it will work with anything else. BUT DON'T TURN OFF LEGACY USB IF YOU HAVE USB MOUSE OR KEYBOARD!

Your WD HDD have been attacted by viruses for your computer or outside computer where you used it last. Make sure that you have an up to date antivirus software, scan your computer or the external hard drive, explore your computer, go to tools - folder options under view files & folders select show hidden files and folders apply and ok it.

If this is western digital world edition
Download the computer software for your Western Digital My Book World Edition if you don't have it installed on your computer.

Install the software to your computer.
Go to the "Start" menu.
Click "All Programs," the "Western Digital" folder and then "My Book World Edition Software" to launch the software.
Switch to the "System" tab. Click either the "Restore Configuration" or "Full Restore" button on the tab, depending on your My Book World Edition drive.
Click the "Browse" button, select the factory settings default restoration point, and then "General Restore" to return the unit to factory settings, or click "Full Restore" and then "Restore Factory Default," again depending on your specific My Book World Edition device.
The unit powers off, all data is erased from the hard drive and the My Book is returned to factory settings.
Hope this helps
