Question about Western Digital My Book Essential Edition (WDG1U5000N) 500 GB Hard Drive
It's not a question of re-formating...It's a question of Partition...FAT32 does not allow files over 4gb to be stored...You have to convert the partition to NTFS..There are tools for that on the WD website....Try to do some research about the pros & Cons of NTFS..because you wont be able to go back to FAT32 without formating....

I have seen this problem 3 times before. There was only one solution, and it worked all 3 times. Reformat the Drive and it will work properly. When you do this, you will loose all data on the drive, so make sure you back it up.
