Every time i plug my 1TB western digital mybook in my computer freezes and when i shut it down it wont restart until i unplug it from the computer i have no idea what it could be please help


That needs a motherboard drivers upgrade.

What happens is that the BIOS starts detecting and checking booting devices.

Earlier motherboards are not able to detect external hard drives and boot from them.

So the solution to this is to turn off the computer and then disconnect the cable.

Remove safely the HD and then restart.

God Bless You!

You need to go into the BIOS of your computer and change the boot order of your computer.  Your computer must be set to boot from your main hard drive only.

New external Hard drive


Open up My Computer and see if there is a new hard drive listed there. It should be automatically detected by your computer, you just need to know where to find it.

Western Digital My Book freezes computer on boot up.


Mine boots fine if I unplug (better yet, hold the flat button down on the back for about 5 seconds, and it will turn off).
