Question about Western Digital My Book Essential 500GB External USB 2.0 - WDH1U5000N 500 GB Hard Drive

If it still does not work, perhaps the drive has failed.

Tips for a great answer:
The most likely reason you cannot see your hard drive on your
Windows computer but can on your Mac, is that the drive has been formatted for
