Question about Western Digital Passport WDXML800UE (WDXML800UETE) 80 GB Hard Drive
There are several free file recovery programs out there. However if the password is still in effect then these won't matter. If it's wiped like the rest of the drive then recovered you then have the same problem have the same problem. If the recovery program does work it usually wants a different drive to write the files to.

Unfortunately, these drives are not made to be dropped.
It sounds like it was damaged by the drop which could have rendered the read/write heads inoperable or mis-aligned.
Contact Western Digital for a warranty replacement.

Inside the case is a regular laptop size harddrive.
Laptop harddrives are 2.5 inches across. (2-1/2 inches. Desktop harddrives are 3.5 inches)
I would suggest the external enclosure the harddrive is in, is defunct.
I would suggest buying a new external enclosure, and putting this harddrive in it. Then just plug the USB cable in, (As you did before), and download your data, to be ready to transfer.
You need an external enclosure that is Sata, and is for a 2.5 inch harddrive. These are relatively inexpensive.
Let me show you some examples:

Do you connect & disconnect the drive according to WD's recommendations here? Try another cable. (If yours was wearing out, that might explain why it only connected some times.) Try another usb port. Check the power supply (another receptacle) Unplug other usb devices from the system.
See this article. Good luck!

Plug the drive into your PC.
Right Click on My Computer (or Computer in Vista/Windows 7) and select Manage.
Click on Disk Management.
Right Click the Volume in question and select Format. Select FAT32 in the options.

This error comes up when the drive is formated by a different operating system, and yours can not read it. You will need to format it to be read by your current system, but you will lose any data on it. The only other option is to find out what it was formated for, Windows or MAC, and hooking it up to that computer.
With a Windows system, once you hook it up, open explorer (not internet explorer). You will see that drive on the right side, right click on it and choose the format option. Once it has been formated, you will be able to use it.
