My Book Essential, I am missing the cables both power and usb. Then I need to use the device to transfer images and store them for Adobe Lightroom 4 to use on both PC and iMac. any suggestions solutions?
Well here is a link to identify your cable http://www.wdc.com/en/products/resources/drivecompatibility/ and one for power supply http://wdc.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1378/session/L3RpbWUvMTM0MjU1NDIwNi9zaWQvNHVEbzFvMWw%3D The drive will need to be formatted FAT32 to use with both, the down side is the largest file size is 4 gig. Or you will need some software on one of the systems If the drive is formatted for Windows NTFS then this post has some suggestions http://community.wdc.com/t5/WD-Portable-Drives/unwritable-drive/td-p/435872 see post 6 by fzabkar.
