Problem with mass storage device

My western digital 500 gb my book essential was working fine before I formatted my hard drive. Now when I plug it in I am not able to get it to show up in My Computer so that I can access it. I have also tried it on another computer and it doesn't want to work on it either. Not sure what I should do with it..

Windows 2000 / XP maximum hard drive size 137 gigabyte limit

so I need ALOT more information about your configureation before I can even begin to help you

I need to know what type of computer you're dealing with , and what operating system you're using.

the number 1 reason people can't get help on these issues is because they don't post enough information , glad to help out

It is being detected but I don't know how to put and listen to the music that I put on there


its not possible to "to listen to it from the drive". it is just storage, ao it will require another device. though in windows, you'll insert the usb, and make ur way to my computer, it will be listed as "western digital mass storage" along those lines.

on a mac it will display on the desktop.

My Western Digital My Book Essential Edition 500 GB hard drive was working fine, until the power cord was removed accidentally. Now I can't get any computer to recognize the drive when I plug it in the USB...


Is the power light on, if not replace the power supply.
I f you have light then your hard drive is shot or the circuit inside the box is fried.
If it is out of warranty and you have another Western Digital Sata drive handy you can swap it with the one inside to see if the drive is bad.
Good luck.

Wd 500 not showing


It may be in raw format. Go to Control Panel-Administrative Tools- Computer Management- Disk Management. It will show all your drives and their formats. You can format from there if you need to.
