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


#1

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


#2

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


#3

It’s looks like this one:

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Western-Digital-320GB-My-Passport-Essential-Purple/13037857

except it’s black.


#4

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


#5

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

P.S.

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
