Question about Western Digital WD Passport 250GB Portable Drive 250 GB Hard Drive
I have a Western Digital USB Hard drive Model WD1600U017-004 160 External Hard Drive. I used this for so many times, until such time it can't be detected in my PC or laptop. I checked on the device manager but the device is properly working but why is it the dive does not appear.
I need help ASAP. because my important files are there.
Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks.
Dads My WD 250 Gig worked fine till yday evening and suddenly it decided that it wouldn't work. In the Disk Management, it says not initialized and I am not able to initialize it either. Is it time to bury it for good?
Maybe, your hard disk enclosure is broken already, but your hard drive is still functioning. You can open the enclosure and try inserting your hard drive in your PC if it's still working so you can save your important files there.
To open your enclosure, copy the link below and paste it in a new tab.

I found this on this site. in case you havent seen it. It worked for me. Try this:
When I disconnected my backup drive and plugged in a USB drive the other night, my Windows drive letters got all wonky. D: became G: became F: became H:, and a bunch of my shortcuts didn't work anymore.
But it's easy to reassign the drive letters of your choice to add-on disks in Windows. Microsoft says you should log on as an administrator, and from Administrative Tools in Control Panel:
Double-click Computer Management, and then click Disk Management in the left pane.
Right-click the drive, the partition, the logical drive, or the volume that you want to assign a drive letter to, and then click Change Drive Letter and Paths. Of course things can get wacky if the disk is in use - by your computer or another on the network - so proceed with caution, you drive alphabetizer, you.
