Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I just purchased a WD MY Book Studio Edition 1TB external hard drive. I am trying to install it and the little slip of paper inside said for leopard 10.5 to look for article #1716 for installation instructions. I have searched and searched and cannot find it. I have an airport wireless router so I used a USB hub to plug the printer and the hard drive into and the power source is plugged in and the light comes on in the hard drive.

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.

After I disconnect it from my pc for the first time, when i reconnect it it does not show up in MY COMPUTER. 1tb wd My bookessential edition


Western Digital Enclosures are known to have this issue due to the electronics inside. The Hard drive is most likely fine but the electronics that drive the enclosure are not that great.

If it is newly purchased you could return it on warranty or by a new enclosure but buy a good quality one.

No, this is just the little reader head getting the data off of the storage discs. One thing about WD Drives, is that they are not know for their silence. I have on of the 1tb My book drives, and when it powers on, or is in use it sounds like a tank is driving through my computer cabinet.
