Beeping and not detected external hard


Beeping usually happens when the harddisk does not get enough power.
Try 2 things: 1. a smaller cable, 2. USB port at the back panel on a PC.
Front panel USBs are shared, also try removing everything connected to front USB ports.

Before the operating system can recognize the drive and assign it a drive letter, you must partition and format the drive. This article explains.

Before the operating system can recognize the drive and assign it a drive letter, you must partition and format the drive. New hard drives are rarely pre-partitioned by the manufacturer. There are three options to formatting and partitioning the drive:

1. (Recommended) Seagate's DiscWizard utility is compatible with all Windows operating systems. The DiscWizard utility is a fast and easy way to format a drive.

2. FDISK is compatible with Windows 9x, Me. Please refer to Microsoft's knowledge base article Q255867 for instructions on FDISK.

3. Disk Management is compatible in Windows NT, 2000, XP, and 7.

Delete the UpperFilters registry value and the LowerFilters registry value. These values may cause access problems. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
  2. Locate and then click the UpperFilters registry value. This value is located in the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E967-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
  3. On the Edit menu, click Delete, and then click OK.

My Book, Need upgrade to make it compatible with Mac Leopard OS X. Article #1716.


1) Go to support.wdc.com 2) Click Downloads 3) Select MyBook, then your MyBook model (I selected MyBook Home, as it was appropriate to my hardware) 4) Download and install the WD Drive Manager (Mac)
Note that this software only updates the utilities that control the power button, drive lights, and capacity gauge. If the drive is otherwise not functioning properly, you'll probably need to seek alternate support: the hardware itself functions just fine for me as an external drive without installing any additional software or drivers.
