I plugged in my 1TB WD hardrive and noticed that it did not show up as the name I had renamed it instead it showed up as Local Disc. When I try to access it it just crashes windows, I tried this on my...


It could be that the drive was infected by a virus. The Virus dumps an file with the name autorun.inf onto the drive and everytime u plug the drive into a pc - it wants to run the virus that autorun points to.

Try something - unplug the hard drive, then press the SHIFT key and while holding it, plug in your hard drive. DONT let go of the shift key until the drive has been detected (around 10 seconds should be find) then let go of the shift key - if the drive shows up under "my computer" DONT double click on it to open it as that will jsut run the virus again ... instead .. RIGHT click on the driver and choose explore. If you can see the drive this time - it is a virus and the best option is to remove the virus or format the drive - post another question if this does not work.

Good luck

Can't turn off Hard Drive


The error means that you are using a file on the external hard drive and that it can not close that file when it is use. You have to close the program that is using the file first.

Example:
Lets go on the assumption that you have your music collection on the external. If you still have your music player running when you try to disconnect, you will be greeting with the same error message.

If the external contains any files that your Operating System uses, you will get this message anytime the computer is on. An example of this can be your "Page File".

Shutting the computer down correctly is your safest bet until you find exactly what file is being used and what program is using it. During shut down, the computer closes any running programs. With no programs running, it will safely disconnect from the external HD because there will be no files in use.

If you manually disconnect it while the file is in use, you could very easily corrupt the file and make it unusable. This is comparable to an Operating System getting corrupted from a computer not being shut down correctly (pulling the power from wall without doing a shut down).

Hope this helps.

WD My Book-Delayed Write Failed-Can't access-Files deleting!


Hi when you buy a hard disk you do not get instructions on how to change from FATS to NTFS. Your hard drive is set to FATS by default,which limits you tranferring files up to 4GB.If you changing to NTFS does 2 things. 1.you can transfer bigger files.
2. You will lose all data on the drive so you have to save any files to another drive ect
To change to NTFS, go to Start then Right-click on My Computer and select Manage. Under Storage click on Disk Management. Now find your hard drive in the list and Right-click on it and select Format. Under File System change the Answer to NTFS and leave the Allocation Unit to default.Click on Perform Quick Format if you want. click OK and confirm your OK with losing all data on the drive,and your done.
Regards Bill
