Hey folks,

So my WD 500gb external hard drive was showing up as MYBOOK (I:) just yesterday. I could access files on it but an I/O device error began to show up and I could not download/save to it. This was not a huge deal as I could still access the files I had on it, but occasionally they would begin to not respond, and I would have to unplug/replug in the USB cable to make them work for about 15 or so minutes, and then they would stop responding again. Just now, it stopped showing MYBOOK (I:) and now shows Local Disk (I:) and there is nothing on it! not even free memory! I tried optimizing it for performance, did not work. It shows as a RAW file system, and although I don't want to risk losing my files, but it won't even let me reformat it to NTFS. When I plug the drive in it seems normal but just now began making two successive clicks that sound off every 3 or so seconds. This is driving me out of my mind.

Sincerely

HC
