This problem often happens because of the cable, try to move the cable near the connector of your drive. by this time access the devive manager, and check if there is changes in the list while you change cable's position, if so, your cable is defect.

If your PC will not recognize the drive now, you will have to use an external formatter program. If it will, thenclick on the drive letter of the drive and choose format from the options menu.

My WD ext hard drive will not be accessed by my computer


If the drive is new, you may need to format it. If you already have data on it, then DO NOT format it.

If it is new, you'll right click on the drive icon and click format. After the drive is formatted, you'll be able to open the folder for the drive.

Does you drive make any sounds like these? If yes you have a mechanical problem and you should get a specialist to work on it.
If not - try to remove the drive from the enclosure and connect it directly to the computer to recover your files.
