This is the hard disk that i have
Its 1.5 tb, and I bought it at around June 2010.
So today I plugged in my hard disk and it worked perfectly. Then I decided to watch a movie and the movie didn't load, so I used task manager to stop the program. I don't know what happaned, BBOD just came out. Afterwards, my computer restarted and it doesn't load windows (I had still have the hard disk plugged in). So I thought something was weird and I unplugged the hard disk (usb cable) and windows started to load. ( I am currently using windows 7).
So after loading everything in Windows, I decided to plug it in to my computer again. And nothing comes out, the lights keep flashing. There are no USB manager, nothing pops up and I see nothing in My Computer.
It not just affects loading windows, it even affects shutting down windows.
I don't know how to fix this, can someone please teach me how to fix this? I want to avoid formatting as there are many important data in the hard disk.

have exactly the same problem..
did you fix it?
nah! U guys should ask for a R·E·F·U·N·D! No way!!
And remember: there's no backup until you have made the third backup of the second backup of your original data.

Maybe we can stay in touch, in case either of us finds the fix... http://community.wdc.com/t5/My-Book-for-PC/Win-7-W
Here the local Walmart has put the same model of hard drive as yours for $90. They charge 10 bucks MORE for the 1TB ($100)- So far I seen them do this twice and each time they sold out of the 1.5 TBs fast. I still wonder why they would charge 10 dollars less for a hard drive 50% larger? They may be sold out of the 1.5s now, but who knows.
I realize that any product sold has PRO and CON posts about it online. I just jope the positive posts are more correct.
