Question about Western Digital My Book Essential Edition (WDG1U5000N) 500 GB Hard Drive
I had kind of the same problem like u...when i plugged it into the usb all i got was a "unknown usb device found"
I opened the external case hoping the hdd was still ok only to find out that the hdd cables had been moved slightly out of position..propably from a fall or a knock I didn't even noticed..
I just pressed them back in..click..and everything was back to normal..
These sites have info about how to open the external case..
Hope that helps!
