hey im the same person who just posted above. i went to WD's website, and it said unplug the hard drive from the computer, and unplug it from the power source. then plug it into the power outlet, wait for it to spin up, then plug it in via USB/Firewire, whatever. it worked for me, so hopefully it will work for you.

First I had to reseat one of the drives which had worked loose and become unseated during shipping. Then I had to format the hard drive and finally I had a 1TB external hard drive I could use. The light is still red.

once for mTTED, YOU CAN USE RECOVERMYFILES TO recover your files from the formatted disk, it should recover all files and then copy them to another drive, you cannot save/copy them to the same drive you are recovering from.

Right click on your "my computer" icon in XP, or the word "Computer" on Vista/7, go to manage. On the window that opens up go to storage>disk management. Is it showing up in that list?
If you are using a Mac, go to your utilities folder and run system profiler. Does your drive show up under the usb devices tree?
If its linux, which distro are you using?
Does the drive work on any other computer? If not, I would suspect a bad drive, or a bad enclosure, or just an un-initialized drive, which can be fixed in windows by right clicking on the drive in that list and clicking intialize. In mac run the Disk Utility from the utilities folder and click the drive and select format.
In the future, pls specify your OS. thanks!
