Question about Western Digital My Book Essential Edition (WDG1U5000N) 500 GB Hard Drive
Sometime my hard drive is readable and sometimes it's not.. i have to unplug it for a couple of days then i plug it back up and it's ready to go
Least case scenario it may be the USB cable (or whatever cable you are using) or the jack you are plugging into. I would first try a new cord, a different jack and even a different computer to see if you get the same issue on it. If its still acting up you definitely got a bad drive and you need to get your info off quick. If's its still in warranty get it repaired. If not you will need to get another one. I would not keep sensitive data on there. Hard drives have a habit of dying all of a sudden.
