I almost passed up this question, as I have to admit that I did not want to be the bearer of bad news.

Unless the value of the data is sufficiently a large number, and you have not backed up the drive, you
have even worse news ahead of you, with respect to the cost of data retrieval.

Disks are very inexpensive, these days, so I would advise a Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks (RAID)
system for your present and future consideration.

How to recover data from a broken Western Digital My Book Essential


Remove the HDD inside the case,If the HDD inside is working, remove data with a usb to IDE/SATA Adapter. If the HDD is damaged, which is likely, It ,most likely, can be read, but I don't think you are going to like the bill for that service.

Western digital my book data recovery


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. Every new file or action will take up more "free space" and reduce your chances of retrieving your deleted files from WD. So really, you need to act quickly.

The next step - get a good HDD data recovery software to retrieve the data as most as possible.

You might need to change your bios settings from ide to sata. Have you already checked the bios settings? If everything is in order you might have a bad board. What have you tried so far?

Can i format sata hdd without loseing my files


partition magic may do it, but chances are not. in order to change a filesystem, you have to erase all data to avoid compatibility issues. some file systems have file size limits or even file name character limits and doing a format without erasing the data can corrupt the drive to the point where the data is unable to be recovered. I always recommend backing up data first and would never even try a format without backing it up.

WD5000aaks western digital 500GB HDD motor not spining,


Try reseating the power connector for the drive. You can try another unused connector if it will reach. Do the same for the data cable. Reseat both ends of the cable a couple of times to shine up the contacts. If none of this works, then a data recovery service will be needed.
