    my WD MyBook started refusing to show up in My Computer or Computer Management; no drive letter.

    The "USB plugged in/taken out" sounds happen, but it prompts me to "install my new hardware" and comes up as "Generic USB Device."

    The WD Forums are complete shite; thanks for the 3-year warranty you probably won't honour.

    So I have a conundrum - my ext. HDD is not showing up, it has all my files on it which are irreplaceable, and I've only had this HDD about two-three months.

    It's just not showing up, and WD won't help anyone...:cry:
    any help on how to completely delete its drivers and stuff so that I can try to reinstall it?
    Or other tips?
    -Ex

    I bought my g25 Logitech steering wheel and it didnt work, it appears you needed to plug the ps2 cable into another cable and that into the wall. I was told it was the steering sensor or something was broken. Good thing I found that out.
