I havea 500G WD My Book… (actually three of them.) It isa couple of years old. I got them on sale one day at Best Buy for $49 and thought some day I will use them. I just opened the last one in November and started loading stuff on it. Pics, backups, music. Today I plugged it into a brand new laptop and now NONE of my computers can see it.
The blue light on the front is going in circles, the disk is spinning. There is no chunking or clicking noises (have had them die on me before.)
I tried to upload the firmware but it does not see the drive.
Have changed the USB cable three times.
Have changed the DC cable too.
Does anyone have any other ideas? My new laptop is the new samsung… (red one) running windows 7…
I don’t know much, but if anyone has any ideas, it would be great!
