Question about Western Digital My Book Essential Edition WDG1U7500 - Hard drive - 750 GB - external - Hi-Speed USB
I went to go use my WD tb today and there was no blue light, and basically no power going to the unit. Does this mean the drive is toast or I just need a new power cord?
It could be the power adapter but you'll need to verify that the wall outlet or power strip you have it plugged into actually has power. If it's a power strip make sure that it is turned on and has power and also plug the adapter into a different outlet on the strip as individual outlets can go bad or have a bad connection.

I had this same problem and came across your post looking for a solution online, but didn't find one.
eventually i did get it to start working again. i pluged in an adapter from another device that fit but had a higher output voltage. the hard drive light came on for a second and then nothing. after that, i plugged in the original cord again. all of a sudden it worked. not sure this is a technical solution or just good luck, but if you have a similar adapter lying around with a higher output, try what i did.
