Their is no software for it, nor their is any requirement for any software to use this device, its a plug and play device like a flash drive. Just make sure you turn on the power for this thing before you connect the usb cable to it and then to the computer and you will see a device poping up if you have the My Computer window open up. If it does not come up then it means your new device is bad, simply get it replaced.

How to recover data from a broken Western Digital My Book Essential


Remove the HDD inside the case,If the HDD inside is working, remove data with a usb to IDE/SATA Adapter. If the HDD is damaged, which is likely, It ,most likely, can be read, but I don't think you are going to like the bill for that service.

Windows7 wont read wd1600 caviar as a external drive ???


Did you install the western digital drive softare? There should have been a disk with the drive, which you run when you have installed the drive. It tells the computer there is a new hdd in town. If you don't have the disk, google Western Digital, find their website, and search for HDD driver software, with the model number of your drive. You should be able to download the drivers to your computer, and install them that way.

MY WD500H1U-00 SHOWS UP AS A 5GB DRIVE


Follow these steps:

1. Download HDD Capacity Restore Tool.
2. Install and Run
3. Select your Western Digital drive and hit Restore Capacity.

that's it.

If this fails to restore the capacity it probably because your hdd has a firmware issue. If such is the case then you need to send the drive to a data recovery office, or to Western Digital Shop.

Hope this helps.

Need driver for Western Digital Scorpio (WD2500BEVS) hdd. Cannot install Vista on hdd because system does not recognize hdd. Have no idea where to find these drivers.


Hi raider4123,

The Western Digital Scorpio (WD2500BEVS) doesn't come with a driver, but I have an idea that perhaps you may have a pin setting wrong, making the drive not recongizeable. Here is the information on setting the pin on the back'

If that doesn't seem to solve the problem, then I'd run the WD Lifeguard software, that will detect any problems and correct them for you. You can find that software HERE.

Good Luck,

And don't forget to leave a rating.

I NEED HELP HOOKING UP MY WESTERN DIGIAL WD5000G032


If this drive is only for storage it can be set as a slave drive. If it will have the OS installed and will be the boot drive it has to be set as master. Set the jumpers accordingly. If a different drive is the master you might check the jumpers on that also. I have seen some drives with a (master/slave present) jumper that might need to be changed as well. Most WD drives have a jumper settings diagram on the case.
