How to make my 500 mybook compatible with windows vista


Hello,

Normally by default, these external storage devices are pre-configured to work with Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. If you are having troubles making it work with Windows Vista, try to reformat the device with NTFS formatting and it should run smoothly.

Cheers!

Vista 64 - slow boot with WD MyBook attached


This is caused if there are any system files on your external drives OR if you have set the bios to be able to boot from usb devices

One or the other is where you need to look.

How can i get get WD "my book" hd to also work with windows


Some solutions possible:
(Optional: - First split the video in chunks <2GB to make them more compatible with older filesystems and networking technologies)
A) Copy the file over the network (e.g. using Windows Sharing on the Mac, or using File and Printer Sharing on Vista)
B) Try to do it via the MyBook.  This means the Mac must be able to write something and Vista must be able to read it.  You say you've "set up" the MyBook "for my macbook pro".  How did you format it?  What filesystem?  Mac OS Extended (HFS+) with Journaling?  In general, you need to install something on Vista to read the Mac's filesystem format (HFS+), or on the Mac to write a Windows format (probably best to use NTFS).  Examples of software like that are:    (Win) MacDisk <http://www.macdisk.com>, MacDrive <http://www.mediafour.com/products/macdrive>    (Mac) MacFUSE with NTFS-3G <http://macntfs-3g.blogspot.com/>       or Paragon NTFS <http://www.paragon-software.com/home/ntfs-mac/>
B2) If you've formatted the MyBook as FAT32, you're lucky.  Just split the movie file in chunks <2GB, copy them to the MyBook, copy them from the MyBook in Vista and join the chunks again.
(for splitting you can use e.g. HJSplit and its compatibles <http://www.freebyte.com/hjsplit/>) (also check e.g. "NTFS on your Mac two ways" <http://www.tuaw.com/2007/11/19/ntfs-on-your-mac-two-ways/> for an alternative explanation.)

WD My Book Essential -- Can't find drivers


It should not really need drivers in Win2K or Vista, you might have a problem with your USB drivers. Go into device manager, remove any devices under the USB heading and reboot. All the drivers should reinstall and hopefully your MyBook will come alive again. Otherwise, try the MyBook on a friend's computer, if it doesn't work there then the MyBook may be faulty itself.

Slow boot with Vista and MyBook 250GB external USB.


Its the motherboard problem. Just DISABLE in BIOS option in USB tab: SUPPORT USB LEGACCY - or similar to this. This helps on 90percent of motherboards.
