Yes, probably. Take a try this tool to recover files from WD firstly. If it doesn't help, then take the device for data recovery services if the data is really important to you.

Remember - DO keep the deivice safe from data overritten or physical damage. Regards.

Well, first thing first - STOP using your WD drive immediately! If you continue using the disk drive, you significantly increase the risk that the files you want to recover will be lost forever due to overwritten. The next step - get a good HDD data recovery software to retrieve the data as most as possible. Learn more from: http://www.western-digital-data-recovery.com/

As to how to format the WD drive, I'll advise you format it via "Disk Management" under "My Computer".

Best regards.

MY WESTERN DIGITAL MY PASSPORT HARDDRIVE IS NOT WORKING. WHEN I PLUG IT INTO MY COMPUTER, IT VIBRATES. MY COMPUTER STATES THAT IT DOESN'T RECOGNIZE IT. IS THERE ANYTHING I CAN DO?


try other usb port, or other computer and see whether the hdd is detected. If still not, try to go to device manager ( http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000833.htm ), and then assign a drive letter to the hdd. After that, try to access it from Computer, if not able to access it, format it (use quick format) and then use this program to recover your files.

I have a WD 500GB External Hard Drive that is not being recognized by my PC (Windows). The power light comes on the external hard drive and an hear faint clicking when first plugged in, but no access....


If it shows up in 'my computer' as a drive letter(like E: drive) but you can't access it,you can recover data on it with data recovery program to avoid losing your data.I have succeed with Tenorshare data recovery. It can recover data after deeply scanning your external hard drive to look for lost data due to drives crash, physical damage,system sabotage, virus attack etc.You can get it here: http://www.any-data-recovery.com/product/datarecoverystandard.htm After you recover your data,you can format it to check out whether it can be fixed.
If the hard drive can't be detected,you can try this way.Put it in a zip-lock bag and put it in the freezer for overnight. Then while it's still cold plug it into the computer and you may be able to view it in 'my computer'. And if needed, run the recovery program to recover your data on it.
If it fails, you will have to go to a recovery office where supply data recovery service but let's hope not because it will cost you a lot of money and whether they can recover data is not guaranteed.

I have a Western Digtal 1 TB external hard drive, It has been working since I had it (about 3-4 months) and yet now whenever I plug it in to my laptop or pc it doesn't show up in 'my computer', Windows...


Have you tried plugging it into another system and see if it recognizes it? You're right it shouldn't need any drivers unless something has damaged the drive and it's no longer giving it's identification to Windows. If that is the case then it may have been damaged beyond repair and the best you could hope for is maybe recovering the data.
