Every time I plug in my WD 320GB External HDD it makes 3 beeps 5 times

It also doesn’t pop up in Computer. What does this mean?

Hi there, what external drive do you have? Have you tried checking the unit for errors?

It’s looks like this one:


except it’s black.

What if you check to see if the drive is on disk management? (right click on computer/my computer icon> manage> disk management)

The computer DOES recognize it, it just doesn’t pop up in My Computer.


I looked at it in Ubuntu and Ubuntu says its 2.2 TB :stuck_out_tongue:

An attempt to format in Ubuntu brought up an error
