That sounds like a head crash. You should take to a service center and get it fixed and/or inspected.

I can not link up with My Book World Edition 500GB


That is because the MyBook is set with a default IP address of 192.168.1.257. You will have to put a static IP address in that subnet range in order to be able to see the external drive. Hope this helps....
