Question about Western Digital My Book Essential Edition (WDG1U5000N) 500 GB Hard Drive
My book appears to be working but 2 different computers aren't reading it. There is a clicking noise when I turn it on which then stops. When I click on "remove drive safely it lists the device but it does not show up on my computer. Help- it has all my pics of grandchildren
Unfortunately if you are hearing a clicking sound that means that there is a problem with the hard drive. If the drive is still in warranty I would recommend that you contact Western Digital to get an RMA for the drive.
Let me know if you have any more problems or questions
