Question about Western Digital 160GB MyBook Essential Edition 160 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive
Have you placed the usb cable into another port, if not do so and see if this works.
another thign is to try a new USB cable to see if there is an issue with it. Check the rear of the unit to make sure the usb mini port is not damaged.
When reconnecting it to the computer does the computer recognize the drive and installs it? if so and there is no drive letter, you can right click my computer/computer and click manage. from there you can use the disk managment to set a drive letter. From here you can also check to see if there is a conflict in device manager.
