With such little user time with the device , I highly recommend you use only fake test files to see what happens , don't use your real files yet till you see what happens with your test files..

I highly recommend going to the manufacturer for help on this , they would be the first place to get help with it. and the first place to get support.

lets see what happens.

Hello. I understand how hard it is to read some of those instructions. Here is a link for you to copy/ paste that takes you to Western Digital. They bought Hitachi. This is the PDF instructions that you need to be able to install the software correctly to do your backup.

I PLUGGED IN MY WD MY BOOK ESSENTIAL 500 GM BUT I'M NOT GETTING A WIZARD OR ANYTHING IN ORDER TO START A BACKUP. I DON'T KNOW HOW TO START A BACK UP WITHOUT ANY INSTRUCTIONS :)


Download a program called discovery from WD, it is free. When installed, plug in the drive and run the discovery program. Your drive should work properly. Then you can download the backup program, also free. When you run that one it will guide you through the process. Please let me know how it works for you.

My external drive came 'locked' straight from the box. How do I unlock without knowing a password


Take it back to the place where you bought it, and get them to unlock it, or replace it by an unlocked unit.

Just plugged in new wd 1tb hardrive to windows xp computer blue light flashing on book front but no icon on computer


Brand new?

Did you follow the instructions in the booklet that were packaged with the external disk-drive?

Did you try connecting the unit to a different computer?

Did you take it back to where you bought it, and ask them to demonstrate attaching it to one of their computers, as a demonstration that it works, or to prove that it is "defective" and the seller must replace it?
