Hi.. try to Remove the drive from it's external case, and try a different hard drive. If that works, your drive is the problem. If it still doesn't work, the USB to IDE interface is the issue.
Try mounting the original IDE drive internally, and see if you can read it there. If not, you'll need to send it to a data recovery center...

thank u

Western Digital External hard drive not appearing under my computer or anywere else apart from Device manager (USB mass storage device) and safely remove usb hardware, have tried another comp with no luck...


1st dismantle the hdd and change sata to usb adapter. Get cheap on ebay. Certainly, most wd makes hdd motherboard with usb straight away, but still worth to try. BUT, before all check if your pc usb is working, check with mouse or smth. If so, then try change cable. After cable try dismantle that hdd and change mentioned adapter. If none of these work, you then have a lesson, never western digital, seagate only1
