Some times with external USB drives you have to remove both the power and the USB cable from the drive, wait like 30 sec. then connect it back up. I know it sounds trivial but see if that helps thing. There was some forum chatter I heard a little big ago about the 1tb WD my books concerning the power supply and this type of behavior. You might want to check with WD to see if they have a recall on your power supply.

How do I format my Western Digital 1T to fat32 for ps3?


Without a firmware update your PS3 needs it to be fat32 as you've noticed, and without the use of a utility Windows will not let you format a 1tb using fat32

You're best be it to download a program called SwissKnife, it's a utility that will allow you to format the drive the way you want

WARNING: Before using SwissKnife to format the drive, you have to take all the data off of it (onto your computer or another drive), if you don't then when you format the drive every file will be lost.

Computer freezes on start-up when western digital 1tb external hdd plugged in to computer, computer starts fine with it unplugged. The hard drive can be plugged back in after start-up.


This is a known problem with these drives. Disabling USB legacy support in your Bios should solve the problem., it did in my case but at the expense of not being able to boot from a USB device. Definitley a problem with their enclosure or drive.

MY 1TB Western DIgital Ext Hard Drive is not recognized


Go to add new hardware wizard. This may not come with a disk if you do have a disk it will ask you to put disk in. If you do not find it there go to the HCL directory of the western digital website for installation directions.
