Download a program called Hijackthis from Download.com

Once you run it, click on the button that says "Open the Misc Tools Section" and then choose "Delete file on reboot"

Select the file from your external HD, and click okay. It will ask you to restart your computer, so be sure that you have everything closed down and ready to restart.

Please Rate. Thanks :-)

I would advise to also run a Virus scan (I advise running Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, also from Download.com) on your external, because it sounds like a virus. Just FYI.

I cannot copy files FROM my Western Digital 500GB


Hi,

Check the file system of your hard drive. If your PC is recognizing it, check if its a FAT or NTFS. If it is NTFS then you have to reformat it using your Mac and choose FAT. Mac OS recognizes NTFS as a read only drive. If you plan using it with your PC and MAC you should format it using your mac and choose MS-DOS in disc Utility. You cannot format the drive using your PC Computer with a FAT file system because of the capacity. Only Mac can format it with a FAT file system.

Need this to work


Is it a network drive try unplug it for at least a minute and see
if it reconnects and if you can access the setup through
the browser ....depending on your network addresses.
You also might be able to mount it through a linux machine
since the file system is different.
Last resort is expensive and that is professional data recovery
hope it works for you

Same problem for my on my brand new drive.
I found a solution on the web that points to reformatting the drive as a fix:

PROBLEMS WITH MY WD BOOK


Hi, This post might be of some help/idea... http://www.fixya.com/support/t191153-device_recognized The only difference is your model uses Western Digital and not Seagate. Yours can still be recognized but Windows consider it non-formatted. First try a data recovery software and another storage medium where you can copy the files if you're successful in the recovery. Good luck and kind regards.
