Question about Western Digital My Book Office Edition 500GB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive

1 Answer

My western digital 500gb firewire drive turns itself off

I called WD and they told me it was a problem with the drive, and that it shouldn't be doing that. They sent me a brand new one free of charge, and got me to send the old one back to them, free of charge. I just spent 5 hours reloading all of my content from time machine. I go to play some tunes and lo and behold, the new drive has shut itself off.
WTF?
does anybody know why this happens? the drive I'm using for time machine is a 750GB Western digital essential edition, and it's not doing this at all...

Slow, and sometimes non responsive. I just cloned my old hard drive in my Macbook Pro to a new 500gb WD drive. What could be the issue? please advise


Please check that the power connection - to the outlet and to the device itself is as it should be. Mostly, when these things occur, it's related to a physical problem - either with the power source (cable/outlet) or a physical problem with the drive itself.

If you have data already, you will need to buy third party software to do the job. i recommend norton partition magic , easy to use and works. Before you purchase you have to clarify to if firewire will be detected after reboot.

Hope that help.
