In order to fix this problem, be sure that the drive is formatted to NTSC. Mine was, however, when I started loading mp3 files to the drive first, it somehow got reformatted to FAT32. I don't know how, but it did. Copy your mkv files FIRST!

Usually if this happens it's either a dead AC adapter or a failed circuit board inside. If you have nothing crucial on the drive take it back to the store you bought it from or contact Western Digital for warranty.
If you do have crucial files and don't want to loose them by simply warrantying the drive, take it to your local PC store and void your warranty by having the techs there move you hard drive into a new enclosure for testing. If it works in the new enclosure buy it and be on your way. If it doesn't your problems are more severe and will require some specialized assistance from a Data Recovery Pro. If this is the case ask the techs to place the HDD in a anti-static bag then reply to me with your Country, State, City and I will refer you to a nearby Pro who can access your files and save them for you.
Hope this helps FixYa,

Windows 98 does not properly work with drives > approx. 130 GB. This has something to do with the FAT* being not large enough for more cluster entries.
*(FAT = File Allocation Table; this tells the computer in which clusters on the HD a file is stored. What is the FAT good for? A computer stores files on HD like a very messy person: The first next free space is used; if it is not sufficient, the second next free space and so on. This leads to fragmentation, i.e. one file may be stored on many different sections of the HD. But unlike a messy person the computer keeps good track of where he puts all the pieces; this list is the FAT.
Here's how I worked around that problem: Partitioned them so that each partition was about 125 GB. Also: Cluster size must be 32 kB; if it is smaller you get more clusters and the FAT can't handle so many.
For example I have a 500 GB hard disk that is partitioned into four 122 GB partitions (just to be on the safe side; a couple of GBs not allocated). This works trouble-free.
You might do the partitioning with Windows's FDISK, though it gives you wrong indications about partition sizes. Use percent values (e.g. ''24%'' when specifying the required partition size in FDISK.
A partitioning utility I can recommend for ease and reliability is Acronis Disk Director Suite.

all solutions are not helpful, if u just use safe mode then there is no problem with hard disk, its a problem of some services, u just try with safe mode.30-40% people has same problem.
