It should. Try to turn iot on and plug it in and then let it go to windows update. If you can do that go to microsoft.com and search for it. It has to be there.

You have to expand the "Disk Drives" device manager entry to see your MyBook Essential external drive.

These drives are formatted at the factory, and you should also be able to see it in Windows Explorer. It will automatically be assigned an unused drive letter, and accessible immediately.

I have a terabyte Western Digital external hard drive. I'm using Windows 7. The drive keeps resetting itself to say Write-Protection on. It won't let me install anything onto it most of the time. Can you...


You're getting "clues" that the disk-drive is about to completely FAIL.

While you still can, copy all the files from the drive onto your disk-drive, and/or onto blank DVD-writable media.

Then, check if the device is still under warranty;
if it is, exercise the warranty to get a replacement.

If not under warranty, then WD has a "Customer Loyalty Program".
Access their online store, and cite the serial-number of your unit, and you'll get a discount on the purchase of another WD device.

First check physical connections of hard disk to your cpu. Check in 'device manager' disk drives tab. If its found check in "disk management" in that drive which file system its showing. If it shows raw partition mean your file system is corrupted. It requires remove that partition and create a new partition.

for disk management : start > run > diskmgmt.msc
