TMI, but the cord might be fine. Just read the input spec on the power brick or per the manual, and if it can tolerate 110vac .5A (e.g. INPUT: 100-340VAC 0.5A) it will be okay. The maker doesn't know where that shaver cord has been, so of course they're not going to guarantee it won't start fire or worse, but it's just a cord. Test-fit it before energizing it, maybe buy a newer one if a cat's eaten some of it, then check carefully that it's not heating up when in use, before letting it be.
Let bro' know what kind of cord they sent, as a heads-up.

Hey, why'd you call it a generic desktop problem when you had the WD MyBook model info and everything? Nobody else can use problems and solutions that don't have specs on 'em....

No power to my WD 1TB

If its under warranty then get it sent back.

If its not then almost any 3.5 " external sata enclosure will do so long as it has its own power supply. and if that supply is a wall-wart then should you pooch that, they are so easy to pick up and replace.

If you need quick access to the files remove the disk and fit it to a suitable computer.

Yes. The case doesn't care what size the drive is. The computer is just asking for the USB driver for the case. Check the WD site for the driver for the model of MyBook that you have. That should cover it.

Western digital my book 320gb not recognised

Try first disconnecting all USB ports and power plug for half an hour, this will get rid of eventual problems caused by electrostatic charges on usb channels.
If it does not work, this means that the virus has corrupted your Windows System, probably the root hub is defective.
In this case you will have to reinstall windows, either using recovery, from disk or partition, or using a Microsoft windows setup disk. Save all your data before reinstalling.

Not recognised malfunction

Sounds like your drive may be faulty with the rattling - if I were you I'd back up everything off it pretty quickly, then send the drive back to western Digital if under warranty. I wouldnt open it otherwise your warranty will almost certainly be void.
