Question about Western Digital My Book Essential 1TB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive
The Hard Disk activity LED indicator blinks only when there is some Read/ Write activity. In your case if the LED is blinking frequently, it certainly means some activity. It could by due to the following reasons: -
1. Antivirus program automatically scanning the disk
2. Probably due to some virus activity.
So, I suggest that you may check the Antivirus program settings for any automatic/ scheduled scans (as some antivirus programs automatically start scanning the external drive). Secondly, if there appears any virus activity (which is likely) you should update the Antivirus program and scan the system. If you dont have the Antivirus program installed on your PC, to disinfect the system you may install antivirus, update it and scan.
AVG 2011 Antivirus FREE Edition
From the above link AVG can be downloaded and installed for FREE. Its basic antivirus protection.
Install AVG and scan the system.
Hope it helps! Good Luck!
