Replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
good luck

My dishwasher doesnt drain away


Hi

Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller.
Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

WD Elements ext.HD not visible in My Computer


Hello Graham

Ok, have you tried changing the drive letter of all the drives in the device manager? This is sometimes the cause for the drive not showing in My computer.

Let me know if you have tried this already, if not, do this, it might just work. It is a 320GB drive.

Kind regards
Andrea

I have a WD Media player and a WD 1tb Hard disk they problem I have with them is I copy Movies to the hard disk but they do not show when I use the Media Player Can you suggest how I can view them Ian...


The movies have to be in the format that the media player can handle. If not, then they will not be visible, leave aside viewing them. You must download movies that are the same format as the player, eg, .mov or .wmv or whatever.

My computer restarts recognaizing WD external hard drive!


I suggest you check the power management on the device. You can right-click the disk in the Device Manager and see if it is allowed to be powered off, or you can check the power settings in the control panel.

Most likely it is turned off, and when it resumes, the computer somehow thinks it was not plugged before.
