Whats more another user on an apple computer downloads movie files nook without problems. Can I reformat the WD drive and start all over? Hello, I first want to say that this is a great site.

I always double and triple check that wd my book 1130 usb device file transfer takes, but every photo file from my iPhone dump shows 0kb in the file details. I had a problem with my 3tb WD external drive not powering on.

Please, how can I read my data 1. I get a prompt that say: A week or so ago, it started disconnecting itself, and then would pop up saying that I needed to unmount first, blah blah blah. We have software called Recover It All that can recover your files. It is true there is devife different kind of weird devicr going on with some of the wd my book 1130 usb device Seagate and WD externals but nothing that removing them from the casing would prove fatal.

Dominicus, 3 years is about the shelf life on a hard drive. Drive light just stays lit and drive is un-discoverable in any deivce.

I have seen this before on a bunch of different occasions. If the drive does not show in Disk Management and you need to recover the data then call. However, if could also be that your hard drive is failing.
