Yeah, well you turned Autorun off, it seems. Does the drive even show among the other ones on your computer on the desktop? And doubleclicking that does nothing?

Perhaps your antivirus is also preventing autorun.

Otherwise, make sure power and the USB connection are as good as can be expected.

Mybook 500gb shows 2199gb and cannot be read


This drive has been misformatted. You will need to plug the drive into your windows computer. Hold down the windows key and tap the e key. In the window that appears, find the MyBook drive. Right click and choose format. Select the quick format box. Make sure file type is set to NTFS. Click "Format". This operation will however remove all data on the device.

I can not link up with My Book World Edition 500GB


That is because the MyBook is set with a default IP address of 192.168.1.257. You will have to put a static IP address in that subnet range in order to be able to see the external drive. Hope this helps....

WD Hard Drive Not Detecting


Yes, this can be done via the user web interface, by typing in mybookworld or wdstorage into the web browser and the shared storage manager should come up. If you go to general setup there should be an option to update network settings.

My system (Sony VIAO running VISTA) will not recgonize my external harddrive (MyBook 500gb). Per the instructions it is supposed to be automatically recgonized upon startup/plugging in the usb.


Vista operating system is built to be security conscious about what they must accept or deny.But in any case,
1.check to make sure that the usb cable use for the connection is healthy.

2. Test the device with a different pc or laptop to be sure the fault is not from the device.

3.make sure that the usb port is enabled if not access your setup utility to do so

I recently purchased a Dell XPS 420 Desktop computer, running Vista, from Dell, including a WD 500GB MyBook external hard drive. The power button did not function from the get-go, but I was able to copy...


Unfortunately if there is no driver for Vista, then your out of luck. Since Vista is a widely used OS and getting bigger, then the MyBook manufactures must create a Vista driver soon or they will be in danger of going out of business. Just wait and periodically check the MyBook website for new drivers.
