Question about Western Digital My Book Essential Edition (WDG1U5000N) 500 GB Hard Drive
The first think you want to try is unplugging your drive from the computer and then plug it back in.See if Windows picks up the new hardware and starts the service automatically.
Also,and I mean no offense,make sure the AC Adapter is plugged in.Things are kicked loose accidently quite a bit.
If those don't work go to Start-Programs-All Programs and look for a Western Digital folder.There should be a control program in there that you can start manually.
Post any questions you have,I'll help with what I can.And if this fixes the problem,would you please rate my post?
Let me know what happens.

best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
