Your WD HDD have been attacted by viruses for your computer or outside computer where you used it last. Make sure that you have an up to date antivirus software, scan your computer or the external hard drive, explore your computer, go to tools - folder options under view files & folders select show hidden files and folders apply and ok it.

Western Digital 1TB My Passport Essential SE USB 3.0 Portable External, WDBACX0010BBKSN USB 2.0 Hard Drive not recognised


Hi there. Here are some solutions you could try 1. Try connecting it with a different USB cable as the present one may be faulty. 2. If you can open the casing, do so to confirm if there is a loose connection. 3. You can try this great application tool from Seagate called Sea Tool. You will need to download and install on your computer. This tool examines you hard drive and lets you know if it is totally damaged. You can download it here. SEATOOL

WD external HDD my passport 500 Gb . It's not correctly installed into my PC - PC can't find driver. System Windows XP


Maybe it's a power issue. Try a shorter usb cord or try a different usb port. If you are using an usb hub, try to connect the hard disk straight to the pc.

I have a 1TB WD my passport external harddrive and its not recognised on my sony blu ray


You are trying to conect this disk to the standalone Sony bluray device with USB cable?
You are sure sony have implemented this functions (external disk support) on this player?

Now knowing enough about the sony device, you should first of all see through the users manual. There could be a FAT(32) / NTFS issue. Some devices like this does not support NTFS, and the drive must be formated with FAT32.

Western Digital My Passport Essential SE External USB 2.0 Portable Black 720GB Hard Drive too slow..


Try plugging it into a high speed usb port, formating it with the size of your files in mind, so for instance if you have lots of big files, raise the allocation file size and visa versa, otherwise buy a faster one.
