WD MY BOOK 320 GB problem

Hello All,

New here…and hope to find a fix to my problem. :wink:  I have had a WD MY BOOK for some time now.  I lost the WD Icon on my computer after a problem with my computer.  I could never get the computer to recognize the drive again.  I let the drive just sit as I figured I would get around to dealing with the problem…re-installing drivers etc.  Then I found out there were no drivers necessary and got nervous as there are things on the drive I want.

When I plug the drive in (just the power cord) I get nothing but when I also plug in the USB the power light blinks in a set pattern and I can’t turn it off with the power button on the back.  Is it possible the power supply is to blame?  There is no sound from the drive that I can hear.  Also, where can I get another power supply?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,


Just wondering if I have to pass an initiation to have my post answered?  :smileyvery-happy:  J/K  guys but I could use the help from the gurus.



Does the drive show up in Disk Management?  If so, could have gotten corrupted.  If it doesn’t then try another pc, another cable, another power supply.  If those don’t work, it’s probably toast.
