Hi, my computer(s) are not picking up my 4Gb usb. Shouldn't it automatically "plug and play"?


Yes it should. Install the most recent operating system updates and reboot. Check that your USB drive works on another computer to be sure the drive itself isn't broken.

No comp/laptop will pick it up and it just keeps beeping


You could remove the drive from it's case and try installing it as a slave drive in your computer to try and get any files off the drive. If the drive is dead you will need to send it to a recovery specialist but that will cost some money.

My computer does not detect WD 500GB external hard drive


It may need to be plugged into a powered USB hub to get it to work.
I've had the same problem on certain PCs and plugging it directly into a powered hub resolves that problem. I picked up a small powered hub just for that reason that I keep with my drives.
