Question about Western Digital My Book Essential Edition (WDG1U5000N) 500 GB Hard Drive
You need to run a checkdisc on the 2nd partition it should help.
Hold down the windows key and press r. Write CMD and click OK.
In the black CMD window you need to write CHKDSK /F /X R:
You need to replace R: with the drive letter of the partition / section that does not work. you can see it from my computer or computer. for example G: Also notice the space between CHKDSK and /F, and /X AND another space between /X and The letter.
The scan will take some time but hopefully the drive should now work.
Please let me know if you require further assistance or if you have any questions.
