Question about Western Digital 500GB My Book World Edition 500 GB Hard Drive
Check the actual power cord. If it isn't recognized by USB, then the interface to the hard drive is bad.
You can still use this hard drive however. If it is for a desktop, then you can actually open the case carefully. Inside the larger upright external hard drives is actually a SATA 3 1/2 hard drive.
Once you open the case, you will actually come to the drive. Plug it directly into your computer if it support the interface. It'll work. It did on my system.
