I would check one DIMM at a time. One slot at a time to isolate possible bad DIMM.

Here is the memoey support list just in case.

My WD caviar green keeps blinking and won't show up in any way on my windows pc or macbook pro


Your WD has probably gone belly up. If you can't get it to register on either computer and you've tried different computers then it has croaked.

Were you able to use it in the past on the windows computer and the mac? If so, that's strange because they are two different formats and most times when you plug the drive into one or the other it will want to reformat it to be able to access it.

I have a WD 2500JB hard drive and I cannot get it to recognize the computer. Once I plug it into the computer....nothing.


Does the drive make any sounds, even a spinning up sound? Are you using it in an external case or just inside your computer?
Also, is this a drive you've been using and you have data on it, or is it a new drive?

Well although it still warranty they will going to check your hard disk drive before changing it. If they found out that you are the responsible for making the hard drive defective they will void the warranty.Mostly if you heard a sound from the hard disk drive it probably the mechanical or the head and write head are defective. Two solution are: 1. Insist that hard disk drive are automatically having sound or troubled but you always shutdown you computer properly or 2. go to the nearest service center of Western Digital and request for a repair, they will going to repair but they will going to charge for the repairing of your hard disk drive. Have a nice day!

My hard disk is western digital 500GB sata blue caviar 16MB 7200RPM .... it stopped working toady with no reason, it was working fine yesterday night, when i wake up today i found its not working any more...


> stopped working toady (froggy? today?)

It "died" -- either the electronic circuit-board "under" the "spinning" part of the disk-drive has short-circuited, or the motor that spins the recording surfaces has quit.

You've tried it on another computer -- so you've done all that you can.

Any 500GB disk-drive is likely to still be under the W.D. warranty.
Open the enclosure, and get the model-number and serial-number from the label on the disk-drive.
Then, access the W.D. web-site, and click "check warranty status", and enter that information.
If the warranty is valid, W.D. will replace the device, at minimal cost to you.

If the warranty has expired, W.D. has a "Customer Loyalty" program -- purchase a new W.D. device from the W.D. web-site, and you qualify for a good discount on your purchase.

Or, remove the disk-drive from the enclosure, buy a replacement, compatible, disk-drive, and "transplant" it into the enclosure, to create a working external storage device.

WD Passport Drive Lights Up But Compu Does Not Find the Drive


Does your drive make any unusual sounds like any of these: http://datacent.com/hard_drive_sounds.php ?
If yes then you got a problem - it's something mechanical with the heads.
If it sounds normal or doesn't spin up at all - try to connect it to another computer and if still no go - remove the internal drive from enclosure and connect directly to PC via SATA port.
