Have you checked the power lead. I made a mistake once of using the wrong adapter and it wasn't powerful enough.

Check the Disk Manager in Windows to see if the drive is formatted and has a drive letter assigned.

Also see further troubleshooting on external hard disks.

Every time i plug my 1TB western digital mybook in my computer freezes and when i shut it down it wont restart until i unplug it from the computer i have no idea what it could be please help


That needs a motherboard drivers upgrade.

What happens is that the BIOS starts detecting and checking booting devices.

Earlier motherboards are not able to detect external hard drives and boot from them.

So the solution to this is to turn off the computer and then disconnect the cable.

Remove safely the HD and then restart.

God Bless You!

WB 1TB blu light flashes but wont startup


The my book world has 3 different kinds of flashes.

1. Fast flashing (every 3 seconds) - Which means it's going into standby mode.

2. Slow flashing (every 5 seconds) - Which means it's in standby mode.

3. Alternative flashing between inner and outer ring - Means RAID failure (this only applies if you have the RAID compatible version [dual drive my book world])

4. Simultaneous flashing - Means the drive is overheating and the drive needs to be shut down.

Try resetting the drive, using the link below for guidance (this will not effect your data). If the drive does power-up, you will need to change the IP to static, if you had it that way before and you will need to login with the following login details: Username: admin | Password: 123456
