LATEST: My Book Essentials not being recogonized by Win 7
Went out and bought a program (paragon) to have a better look at this problem namely
My Book Essential not showing up in Explorer on a PC using Win 7 OS .
It does show up ok on 2 other PCs which use XP OS with all folders etc. (after copying content to the drive)
The program which I used on the PC running Win 7 showed all content in its Disk managemnent portion.
So everything is on the Disk but Win7 still does not show in Win Explorer.
As a last resort tried do a firmware upgrade on the Win PC with following msge
“Application encountered an unexpected error and is now exiting”
Mine is not a unique problem I have an identical situation with a 2nd external drive namely a
KASER 250GB Stoirage Vault which has a WD HD in it. (not under warranty)
I have yet to see any interest from Western Digital in this problem -
I thought they might be monitoring these forums???
