Unfortunately it sounds like it may have crashed. Try placing it on its side and trying again. If it does the same thing the best you may be able to do is find a professional that can get the information off and put on another drive.

Does the computer recognize the 500GB Drive when you plug it into your usb port?

Click Start/My Computer and see if your 500GB drive is listed as a device, if not that's a problem.

Try using a different usb port. Also try using the 500GB drive on another computer.

If it's gone belly up, it's not going to work.

Try the external hard-drive in another computer.
If that computer also refuses to recognize it, then there is something wrong with the external hard-drive.

My hard drive just stopped working all of a sudden


Search around on this site for MyBook 500GB problems. I've responded to a couple, but it amazes me that lots of people, including myself, has a failed unit. Mine lasted 1.5 yrs and failure is caused by burned chip pins on the drive controller. Seems likely to be a heat issue. More info about what I did; see my other posts.
