I just purchased My Book Essential Edition and want to install it on my PC. I already have a 200 GB My Book installed. I want to remove the 200 GB unit and install it on my wife's PC. What process must I use to ensure that both WDC units operate properly?

Hi There, Don't know if this will help ?. I have My Book Ess-Edit 500. I bought it six months ago. (it has a blue light which moves up & down when on) Anyway here goes. you don't have to safely remove my book as it turns on & off with your PC. Was your pc on when you pulled the plug? IF SO YOU MAY BE IN THE S***. with my book turned on, Try from start xp / flag Vista. / Computer/ highlight WD mybook / right clik open, in list you should see whats on your my book, folders & so on.
(you seem to be looking for your pic's). highlight folders/ right clik open/ you can restore a file from the list by, again highlight/ then right click/ from list pick (send to) Documents. From there you can copy / paste to pictures. Hope this helps ? Steve 105
