SOURCE: Western Digital My Book freezes computer on boot up.

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!

I have a Western digital my book. I have tried downloading the drivers and can not get it to work. My computer is running xp. The model of My Book is wd3200c032-002. This was functioning on my computer...


Hello,

insert the Western digital my book into your computer, the click start menu, under "search" type in "Device Manager and press enter. When you get to the device manager, you will see a list of your computer's component. Scroll to the USB, under the USB you should see the Western digital my book, right click on it and press uninstall. Remove the Western digital my book and fix it back into your computer.

Secondly, go to start > All programs > Accessories > System tools > system restore. This will help to restore your computer to the time when the Western digital my book was working perfectly.

If the above does not solve the problem, then you can download the appropriate driver from the below link:

Western DIgital 500 GB litght flashes but not working


I discovered that the wrong power adapter was plugged into the Western Digital My Book which is why it was blinking two times a second and fried it. Plugged in a 24v instead of the 12vThe tech support person at Western Digital ignored the information of the blinking light. I fixed the hard drive issue by removing the cover (no easy task) and installing it as a slave drive on my computer. I am backing up that hard drive using another Western Digital My Book.

I would suggest to anyone who has the problem of frying their Western Digital hard drive to make it a secondary drive on your computer. My item was under warranty, but all they would have done is replace the product and not recovered the data. They gave me references on whom to send the problem hard drive to.

There are a couple of videos on youtube showing how to remove the cover. I wound up using credit cards and a DVD to pry it apart. I was fearful that a screwdriver could create noticeable tampering.

Death of a drive


That sounds like a head crash. You should take to a service center and get it fixed and/or inspected.
