Question about Western Digital My Book Essential Edition (WDG1U5000N) 500 GB Hard Drive
Purchased my book will not install on vista
Check the Jumper on the actual HD is set to Slave. Vista SP! seems to only recognise the HDD if its set to this.

Tried this suggestion from WD on the same issue with WINXP.
Turn it off and unplug all the wires. Wait a sec. Plug the power in and hit the front button. After it revs up a bit, plug the FireWire back in. The computer "should" recognize it now.
It worked for me, but will it see it automatically next time???? I seriously doubt it. But I DID submit a request to WD for help. We'll see.
