Question about Western Digital 500GB My Book World Edition 500 GB Hard Drive
According to my laptop, oen of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned, and windows does not recognize it. Its connected to USB Root Hub (2 ports) and it is stated as UNKNOWN DEVICE. I've run a memory test on my laptop and no memory errors were reported.
If i go to my device manager, one of the partitioned drives on my EHDD is stated but with an exclamation mark. I had partitioned my EHDD into two - 40 gigs each.
I do not think its my cable ( i guess)...How do i solve this?
if it,s showing in the device manager as an exclamation mark. that means it,s found it, but can,t recognise it.
i,d suggest formatting and partitioning it, with some good software. also ensure that it,s powered via 2 usb cables to laptop, from 1 on the drive itself. some bigger hard-drives, need the extra power to drive them.
