I wonder if somebody could help me. I have 3 WD Hard Drives, 2 are within a year old and another is probably around 2 years old.
I have recently gotten a new TV, which has a USB port. I have plugged all 3 drives in, and all work fine.
Today, i wanted to transfer some files, onto the older Mybook, which is a Home Edition, so i plugged it into my computer.
It did not recognise the drive, tried to tell me it was empty, however i know theres over 400GB of files on it which work fine when plugged into the tv.
Naturally, I tried to search for this problem online, have tried multiple things, and it has gotten to the point where I have almost given up.
I got close, but then i have got the error saying this USB device has malfunctioned. I’m guessing i need a driver or something? I would really appreciate it if anyone could provide some ideas/knows how to solve this problem, as I need to retrieve some of these files, and cannot afford to lose them.
This drive has been extremely reliable and it would be a shame to accept its time has finished
Thankyou for your help
