Question about Western Digital 250GB MyBook External USB 2.0 250 GB Hard Drive
If it is possible could you try it on another machine either another mac or a windows based pc.
If it is recognised on a windows pc (you wont be able to access any data though), you can, within reason assume that the mac is at fault somewhere.
Unfortunatley I dont know much about Mac's, but is there some kind of device manager that shows what hardware is installed? It could be worth checking to see if there are any errors on the HDD side of it, try deleting any references to the MyBook if there is any, then plugging it back in.
I hate to say it, but I can't help you much more than that.
You could always return it to WD under the warranty system if you cannot access it on a Mac or PC.
