Question about Western Digital 500GB My Book World Edition 500 GB Hard Drive
Hey, i just had the problem but i had given up on solving it, so i had left it blinking for a while. After a little bit, a window popped up saying "Driver Software and Updates have been successfully installed and device is ready to use." Maybe the blinking light just means that its looking for updates or driver software or something. Try leaving it blinking with your computer on overnight (with internet connection of course), or something of the sort. Worked for me. Hope this helps.

A TEMPORARY SOLUTION IS TO PRSS AND HOLD THE POWER BUTTON..... POWER IT OFF.... UPON RESTART U SHOULD BE ABLE TO GET IN.... I don't know why this is but it's a temporary fix.... It will still happen.... I am looking for a better more permanent answer

The best solution for this problem is not using Western Digital and beware of other brand such as Calvary, that use WD drives inside. Probably the best bet is using interior drive that you can see 1st and buy exterior container and install yourself. I keep HD movies on 20 drives and WD has been a nightmare
