How to fix Western Digital My Book 500GB - fail to install drivers, is not accessible

The WD-My Book 500GB is recognized as a local disc in my system(Windows 7), but it's drivers fail to install successfully when connected via USB cable with computer. Then when I try to open it(explore), it slows down the PC, and after some minutes it displayes the message: 'F:\ is not accessible'. And after some time it shows another message asking me to format it. I really do have important data I wanna get from it, so I can't format it.

Have you tried useing the power button to turn off and then back on? I had a simular problem where I could not access the drive. It would appear in Eject External Devices, but not show up in Explorer. I turned it off, then back on, and there it was.
