Default very old 'MyBook 1TB' not working AGAIN and I need help

Hey y'all

some of you might remember this issue I had a long while back
http://freeperl.ru/showthread.php?t=706379

I'm facing another problem with it

AC adapter is plugged in and the ring on the front is flashing but the HDD doesn't appear on "This PC" under Devices and Drives, I only see the DVD Drive and my C: partition.

I have tried this but didn't wanna risk digging deeper (to get extract what matters inside) so I stopped and I've put everything back the way it was.

I bought a new 4TB external (this time with no AC power of course) and I know for a fact that my data (mostly porn ) is safe in there but for some reason the electricity isn't powering it properly.

Any advice & many thanks in advance

The most common failure with external drives, is the power supply or the controller.

Test on another PC to confirm it's actually a failed drive. Assuming it also doesn't work on another computer. You can pull it apart (as noted in your link above) and install it internally to your PC, use a USB adapter, or another external enclosure. With luck, the HDD itself is still good, and you will then have access to your data.

Take it apart and use it as an internal drive like OddBa11 suggested.

It worked for me.

That was over 3 1/2 years ago and that drive is still inside my PC and it still works.

It's a different model than the one I have (it looks different on the inside) and I don't wanna risk opening the case.

can y'all please help with the same models' tutorial, YouTube link if available.

Thanks for the support

I have a unit which is USB3 and connects to old SATAs and IDEs, was worth the £20.

I still say Mango's best bet is to take it apart and use the drive inside it as an internal drive.

Depending on the age and model of the PC and the drive in question, they might not be compatible. You really need to know for sure what you're pulling out of the HD enclosure and what you're putting in the PC. You simply might not have the right cables (leads).

As suggested, Mango might need something like this. Partial tutorial in the vid. This is really only for transfer (more or less a one time transfer). It looks like can plug into and read anything but there is no enclosure.


You can get more permanent enclosure too. They are called docking stations. All can be had on Amazon and they're fairly inexpensive too. I had to buy one when my PC shit the bed. My new PC would not accommodate (wrong connections/cables) my old drive. Technology changes, that's why a little research goes a long way.

How? if there isn't any step by step video or written tutorial for my MyBooks' specific model (that I can find) since it's old,, and this WD page is not useful in this case.

it is a one time transfer fore sure, since I've got a new 4TB external to do that, afterwards this heavy ass drive will be demolished for good!
Not sure what the inside looks like and whether it's one HDD or a two part HDD.

Chances are your MyBook is either a 2.5 or more likely a 3.5 inch drive. Just one. If it was two drives, it would be known as a RAID. They are usually more expensive, so generally only businesses use them. It's a double redundancy backup; One disc (drive) dies, you still have the same info on the other disc.


1TB is small now a days. You can buy an 8TB for under $200. If it was up to me, I'd buy the one time data transfer cable, get all my data off the old drive and then destroy the old drive by drilling it a few times. Alternatively, you could put a few nails thru it too or bullets . Inserting the old drive into your PC's spare bay is an option too, but of course that's more work and more research.

I also have a 1TB MyBook. I find it's very slow compared to more modern USB 3.0 drives and again it's small. Transfer your info and put a few bullets in that tired piece of tech, then recycle it properly. There are a lot of heavy metals in tech.

Youtube is a great research tool.

The black models only had one drive, the silver ones had two and were much larger.
