My computer restarts recognaizing WD external hard drive!


I suggest you check the power management on the device. You can right-click the disk in the Device Manager and see if it is allowed to be powered off, or you can check the power settings in the control panel.

Most likely it is turned off, and when it resumes, the computer somehow thinks it was not plugged before.

WD Elements 500 GB


Hi bobo08,

I'd first check to see if the drive is working correctly with some utilities that WD provides, then once you determine if the drive works, you can either return it the retailer or it's working correctly by using these utilities. Here's the link to that drive. HERE

Good Luck

500 gB doesn't respond to anything!


Leave it unplugged for a minute or so and see if it boots up.
Check the Power supply if it still works.
