Make sure that you have an up to date antivirus software, scan your computer or the external hard drive, explore your computer, go to tools - folder options under view files & folders select show hidden files and folders apply and ok it.

Unit downloaded fine ad the did the back up of the drive fine.started the updates and the firmware stopped and then the drive locked up how to access the drive again after reboot nothing shows G: F:


  1. To restore the Western Digital icon to the drive letter for the external drive in "My Computer".
  2. Please go to the Western Digital Download Library and download the WD Logo Icon which has a file name of External Icon.zip when you download it.
  3. Save the file to your desktop and use a file compression software like Winzip to extract the files inside the .zip file to your desktop. When it's unzipped, it will create a folder named "ExternalIcon" on your desktop.
  4. Double-click on the ExternalIcon folder. It will open a Windows Explorer showing a folder named, Autorun, and a file named, Autorun.inf.Double-click on My Computer and it will open.
  5. Double-click on the driver letter that represents the Western Digital drive you want the icon on and it will open.
  6. Highlight the Autorun folder and the Autorun.inf file. Right-click on them, and left-click on Cut when the Menu appears.
  7. Right-click in the open space of the drive that you opened in the new Explorer window, and then left-click on Paste.
  8. Close both Explorer windows, safely remove the external hard drive by using the Safely Remove icon in the system tray, shut down the computer, and unplug the external drive from the computer.
  9. After you reboot into Windows, reconnect the external drive to the computer again, and the Western Digital Icon should now be displayed with the drive letter in My Computer.

If these steps do not correct the problem, you will need to re-format your External Hard Drive ***WARNING*** FORMATTING A HARD DRIVE WILL ERASE, YOU WILL LOSE, ALL DATA

A DISK READ ERROR HAS OCCURED PRESS CTRL+ALT+DELETE TO RESTART


This can mean a couple things... Your PC might have gotten corrupted by a virus, or the hard drive is going bad. Try pressing "F8" key upon boot up and see if you can get into the computer in safe mode.

If you can then go to "My Computer" and then right click on the c drive and select "properties". You will then go to the "Tools" tab and run an error check on the drive. After that you will want to try scanning your computer for any possible infections.

If you can not get the PC into safe mode then you will need to reformat the drive and reload your PC. But if you have information on the drive that you need. Your best bet then is to go out and get and external cabinet for your hard drive and a new hard drive. Put the new drive in your PC and the old drive in the external for later. Reload the PC and then copy the information off the old drive onto your new hard drive.

Best of luck...

External hard drive not recognized


You need to first narrow down the problem to either your PC or the external hard drive. Do you have access to any other PCs you could try connecting your hard drive to? (think friends, family, public PCs, etc)

If the hard drive works on other PCs, we know it isn't a problem with the hard drive.

If it turns out that the hard drive is fine and the PC is the problem, I would suggest going in to Device Manager and uninstalling everything USB related. Once you have done this, either reboot your PC or right-click inside device manager and "scan for new hardware". All of your USB related devices should reload their drivers automatically. You may want to try this both with and without the usb drive connected.

Another tip would be to try various USB ports.

Transferring data from an external hard drive


Best solution is to make an image of the PC and then use that image to transfer it back. Norton Ghost is a good application for that, but there are more.

My computer does not recognize my Western Digital (WD3200C032) External Hard drive. The hard drive orignally worked fine. Then one day 3 separate computers would not recongize when the USB was plugged into...


if u are using a external hard disk case with the normal hard disk
try connecting your hard disk with a new casing.
if it is made as a external hard disk change the cable .
because after a few time usage the cable will not be quite good as new.
After inserting the usb cable in your pc if it shows any warning
information, or any message just give me that too for exact solution
