You'll find that the external chassis is buggered, get a new one and put the hdd in and see if your info is still there.

My WD elements 1.3 TB external hardisk. It gives a buzz when connected and is not recognised by windows


It sounds like the HDD inside is dead. The USB interface may have an issue but usually clicking or buzzing is HDD failure. If you have a desktop you can try removing the hard drive from the external case and connecting it directly to the computer using a SATA cable.

Wont recognize usb anymore


if the external hard disk drive powers on, perhaps replacing the USB cable could help ?

i had WD extrenal, and it crapped out on me -- i had so much vital information that i lost . i finally discovered that the power modeul inside the housing that encases the drive was bad.. i coul not get the PC board replaced.

i hope you can resolve this with new USB cable.

have you tried another computer -- see if that PC recognises the WD external drive

My computer does not recognise my WD element portable drive and I have no soft ware to install it, what can I do?


Connect it to a different computer. If it still is not detected, then there is a hardware problem. Exercise the warranty to get it repaired/replaced.
Note that W.D. has a "Customer Loyalty" program; buy a new disk-drive from the W.D. web-site, at a good discount.

WD Elements USB drive not recognized


Try going to Disk Management and see if they show up there.

  1. Click Start
  2. Right Click My Computer
  3. Click Manage
  4. Click Disk Management
If your computer is recognizing a mass storage device they should show up in disk management and you can just assign them a drive letter.

Hd only switches on briefly the shuts it's self down


If it has another connector type ie firewire or usb ( the opposite of what you are using ) then try that.

If its usb then you can go into device manager and un install the usb hub under usb devices etc and re install your motherboard drivers and re connect the hard drive also if you have a laptop or a friends computer you can connect it to temporarily to install it on just to see if it works on there computer - if it does then that means the hard drive is fine if not then it points at the hard drive.
