My WD external hard drive has suddenly stopped being recognised by my computer


Unplug the power supply from the hard drive, leave for 15 seconds.

Plug power supply back in.

Try another USB cable if that does not work.

I plug in my WD external hard drive, i hear the chime saying the computer knows i plugged something in, but i see no icon to click on to open it. HELP! i have soooooo much information on this thing!


- try plug in a normal usb port (usb2)


- try open up the device manager, look for your WD and delete it.
then unplug and plug back.

try goto control panels->administrative tools->computer management->disk management
and see if your wd appears there. if yes, try change the drive letter assignment.

The Western Digital hard drive My Book Elite does not show up on the computer screen when plugged in to the Mac computer. It has the blinking light that shows that it is thinking, and everything else...


hello

i have the same issue, exact same unit MY BOOK ELITE WD 500G ..
FYI: if this doesnt work, it is a power module (inside the black box, MY BOOK ELITE) needs to be replaced.

UNPLUG both cables from MY BOOK ELITE WD - restart your computer

- with respect to the MY BOOK ELITE WD , make sure the power cord is plugged into AC outlet wall only, and the other end of the USB into computer only -- but disconnect both from the MY BOOK WD ELITE and leave unplugged for 20 minutes .

after 20 minutes have elapsed, plug the USB cable only for 1 minute , into MY BOOK ELITE WD. Then plug the power cord into the MY BOOK WD Elite. see if it works

if this doesn't work, let the drive sit for 24-48 hours.. then repeat above instructions -- this is how i got mine to work again. FYI: To avoid this issue, i just leave the unit plugged in , while computer is running

BUT -- be aware... i use UPS (Uninterruptable power supply) to avoid power failures throughout the house. So , i suggest , if you want to leave the computer running, use a power supply to run the computer if the AC power fails..

please issue 4 thumbs up

Question...whenever I unplug the TV (to vacuum, for example), and then re-plug it in, the TV does not turn on the green light just blinks. Any ideas?


All these sets have a DM unit, when set is unplugged and plugged back the green light should blink for about 70 seconds and then stop--when it stops you can turn the set on.

This is the DM unit booting up like a computer--fyi, not a good idea to do this on too regular a basis.

If this told you something you did not know, rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.

Western Digital hard drive problem


Ok.  I have a WD 500 and I have ran into similar problems.  First, shut your computer down.  Unplug the hard drives USB cable and the power cable.  Wait for about 2 minutes.  Plug the USB cable into the computer, plug the power cord in...wait for 30-45 seconds and then start your computer.  That hopefully should solve your issues.

Blinking green timer light


Check C81A2, C81A3, C81B3 and C81B4 (1000 uFD, 16V, 105C) on the DM PCB.
Check C8F19, C8F21, C8F22 and C8F27 (1000 uFD, 16V, 105C) on the FMT PCB.
If any are bad, replace all of them with part # 181P734030 (680 uFD, 16V, 105C).
