Question about Western Digital My Book Essential 500GB External USB 2.0 - WDH1U5000N 500 GB Hard Drive
I just bought this right before I deployed. I backed up my lap top on this right before I came out here and now I cant get it to work. I plug in the power cord and the light blinks but I can't get it to show up on the computer at being plugged in. I know its not the computer because my friend 250 gb external hard drive works! What am I doing wrong?
I have been using this hard disk for about 6 months now. It stopped working. The power and the usb cable are connected. I use Windows Xp and it doesnt read it. And for some reason most of the time when i open 'my computer' and the hard disk usb cable is plugged in 'my computer' stops responding !! However the 'safely remove disk' icon comes on the task bar and i can remove it from there. But i cant read it from explorer. The light on the HD keeps blinking. It reads my friends HD and flash drive. Please help me.
