I have 2 older My Book drives, the older one is a WD Caviar Blue EIDE Hard Drive 500 GB, and the other one is a My Book Home Edition 1 TB.
When I plug them in, the light comes on, and at times flickers as though the drive is running, but my computer does not recognize them.
Any suggestions as to what I might do to get the computer to “see” them? I have already checked the power supplies and they are fine, since they work well with other drives. The data cable is also fine.
If I cannot get them up and running, is there any way that I can at least retrieve the data from them?
Thanks for your help with this!
