Thermal protection sensors may be malfunctioning.
Try cooling the unit with a fan.

I want to back up my hard drive onto my Elements external drive. The computer says that the Elements 3607 does not have enough space. What do I do?


Well first of all check how many free space you have on your ext. drive. If you DO have enough to back-up your files,then i would suggest you right clicking on your ext. drive,choose properties and format it,but beware,formating will delete ALL your data on external drive.
If you think i was usefull,click on Thumbs up button,cheers!

Hi.. i need help.. my external hdd transcend store jet 320gb have problem... when I conect HDD to pc blue led blink just one time and hdd stop working..


Check that the USB cable can provide enough power to the hdd. Check that the USB port is powered. Older USB slots may not have enough power to run larger external HDDs, there you may require separate power to be plugged into the hdd. Are you using the original USB cable provided with the external HDD?

I have an lg HXD5 external hard drive 320 GB. My laptop has windows vista home. When I plug in my external drive 1) it takes almost 5 minutes to load 2) it will not let me copy files Could you help...


I don't know about the slow HDD problem but maybe about the COPY problem......
try this....
In your BIOS menu, check if there is any setting for USB devices...
If there is, then enable it....sometimes these settings are set to disabled and so the USB device becomes locked up(meaning you cannot copy or paste anything out of it or inside it)....
HOPE IT HELPS....

HOW TO CHANGE 320GB SATA HDD TO 500GB SATA


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.
