SOURCE: Did I just fry my WD External?

Hi,

I've done something similiar and I know the feeling, but the good news is that you may not of done the damage you think. Here's what I suggest. Go to this link. Where they will explain the differences of the meanings of the flashing lights. There are so many variables, that it would be to difficult to figure out unless I was actually working on the disk itself. But the page is very easy to understand, and hopefully you'll find what I did, was all I need to do was to power down and up again.


Good Luck!

Mark

I went through this with my PC but you want it to remaun seperate you must have loaded it to your C drive find the uninstall and unistall it just check on your control panel to see if it is on there . If you are running microsoft you have to run the program that will be listed in microsoft support just check out the Western igital site they will have an ID number and it will give you everything you need

sounds like you are using the wrong power supply. Check the amp output on the power plug you plug into the wall make sure its the same as the amp input of your external harddrive

I seem to have some problem with the power. Its not turning on, blue light indicator not on in the WD 1TB external powered device. assuming the data is intact, but the power is the only issue. How can this...


Purchase an "empty" enclosure, for about $30, and "transplant" the disk-drive from inside your enclosure into the new enclosure (and new power-supply). All your files will be accessible.
