Western Digital opens first service center in the Philippines

Western Digital officially announced today the opening of its first service center in the country to strengthen distribution and end-user support of its products. The WD service center will cater to all customers of WD products which includes internal and external hard drives, as well as their popular range of home entertainment products.

Not only will customers get quick and local support for their products, this service center will also provide speedy RMA service assistance. Before, if your hard drive needs replacement, local distributors have to ship it back to Singapore and have wait for a replacement.

Having a local service center, customers will be able to bring their in-warranty drives to WD Service Center and receive their replacement drive immediately. If the required model is not available, WD Service Center representatives will contact customers for collection of their replacement drives once ready. This warranty service is available on all WD products sold through WD authorized distribution channels in the Philippines.

The Philippine WD Service Center is located at 2111 Chino Roces avenue corner Urban Avenue, Makati City. Operating hours are as follows:

  • Monday – 8AM to 5PM
  • Tuesday to Friday – 8AM to 6PM
  • Saturday – 8AM to 12PM
  • Sundays and Holidays – Closed

    Thank you!

    • i don’t think they do file recovery. pag ganyan na corrupt ata yung MBR and malala yun.

        Same problem din po na encounter ko.. I really want to recover all my files in WD EHD but cant detect anymore……….Help help …………

  5. Nice. Lalong WD na ang bibilhin kong external HD next :)

  6. Yun din po question ko, kasi I do have a WD 320GB caviar se..
    bios can’t detect it. I’ve researched na on how to fix this, and I learned that you need to replace the main board of the hard drive. so do they fix this kind of problem even though you don’t have a warranty? cause this hard drive was originally came from UAE and was built on a pc.

  7. papaano po ang File Recovery ksi kahit na palitan ksi under warranty pa pero ang important ay yung files sa loob. san po ba pwede ipa recover ang files?

    • hindi nila sinabi kung marerecover pa?

      • sa singapore daw ang pwede magrecover… so malaking gastusan ito

        • Aina Enriquez /

          Will, ibig ba sabihin WALA MAGAGAWA ang WD service center with this prob?

          • wla nga silang magagawa kundi palitan ang unit.. so hindi ko alam kung bakit sila tinawag na service center dahil wla naman service na gagawin sa defective na units nila

          • Michael /

            Same din ang problem ko na dedetect siya kaso NEED daw IFORMAT yung WD MY PASSPORT 1TB 3.0 ko. Tapos na Warranty ng HDD external ko so meaning wala na po ako sir magagawa dun? Pano po marerecover ang mga files ko? Anyone please help and thanks for advance :)

  8. Pano po ang File Recovery? San po pwede dalin dahil dun sa service center sa Chino Roces palit lang ang pwede kahit under warranty pa.

  9. Rey Anthony /

    Sir question lang po.

    What if sa UAE pa binili ung hdd then the box is nowhere to find so how can i check the warranty of the HDD. Bigay lang kasi sakin ng kapatid ko ito eh.

    Hope for your quick response. Thank you!

  11. benjhie /

    The service center will only repair their stuff which is still within the warranty period! If your WD equipment fails after the warranty period, then it’s a piece of junk! That’s what they said at their call center.

  12. CHERAP /

Tapos pinakinggan ko kung umaandar pa ung hdd ko. So dun ko nalaman na hindi na pala gumagana. Papanu na kaya un? Wala naman akong ginawa kahit bagsak. May mga importanteng files pa naman ako dun.. Sana pwede pa marecover un.
