WD My Book Essential 2TB not recognized | Tom's Hardware ForumA line of external hard drives by Western Digital, styled after hardbound books. Available in various editions from Essential, to Premium to World Edition. Have no idea why; I haven't even backedup that many times so it's got plenty of space. I've tried different outlets, also subbed in the power cable from my older MyBook Studio, all to no avail! This is especially maddening since I have many externals, one from even, that I no longer use but still powers up! This really blows!
WD My Book Essential 2TB not recognized
I have had this drive for about 5 months now, from the very beginning it had errors such as it not letting me update the firmware and such because of errors. I have had issues with my computer not recognizing the drive before but usually a simple restart suffices, this time though I have tried every troubleshoot option I have found on the web that I am able to do, but so far nothing has worked. I even reformatted my computer to try to get this thing to work since it has literally all my data on it…. The drive is not dead it is spinning and vibrating. I have tried all the USB ports on my computer 2. I have tried using the drive on other computers with the exact same results. I have tried plugging the cord into the wall directly instead of from a surge protector.

A friend of mine has given me his My Book to test for him. Suddenly his computer has stopped recognizing it. I, too have the same problem…all of a sudden, one day I plugged in my My Book…and nothing! I tried 2 different laptops, changing out cables, and absolutely no recognition at all…what gives…? Can anyone chime in with a suggestion…?
