  • WD 500gb portable HardDrive HELP!!!!

    Went to plug my 500gb WD HDD in last night.
    No go.
    The power pack lights up when the power pack isnt plugged into the hard-drive.
    As soon as I plug it into the hard-drive the power pack light goes off.
    I unplug the power pack from both the hard-drive, (and the cord from the wall to the powerpack) and "gingerly" plug the power cord into the power pack.
    I can here crackling from the power pack as the light comes on.


    Long story short, Can I borrow a power Western Diagnostic Hard-drive power pack from someone so I can get some files for work off it ????


    please????

          If all else fails, you should be able to take the unit apart, pull the hard drive out and plug it direct into your pc.

                            I had A WD ext HD that crapped out after 2 months! Stuck it in the freezer overnight and it ran long enough for me to get some unbacked files off it!!!
                            Now I run Seagate ext H/Ds, 2 of the fuckers and so far (11months)they've been fine.

                              I will never again in my life buy a WD drive.
                              I backed all my stuff up, wiped the computer, and reinstalled the OS.
                              In that time, the external HDD shit itself, lost the lot.
                              The amount of people having the same issues is staggering.
