This may sound silly,but sometimes if you put the drive in the freezer overnight it will work long enough for you to retrieve your data.Make sure you are ready to copy the data to another as it will likely fail again once it warms up.

SOURCE: WD 500g hard drive computer cant read it

Is your hard drive power-up?
Do you hear your hard drive just spinning?

If so, your PCB may went bad. If you hear the hard drive clicking then your PCB or the heads went bad. If you need the data, you might have to ask the data recovery guys to get them back for you or find the PCB on Ebay.

If you don't care about your data, send it back for the warranty replacement

SOURCE: Flashing blue light on external WD hard drive & not recognised

sounds like you are using the wrong power supply. Check the amp output on the power plug you plug into the wall make sure its the same as the amp input of your external harddrive

How do I disconnect (uninstall) a WD External Hard Drive from my computer? I am using a WD 3200AAK WD External Hard Drive and want to install a 1 TB WD External Hard Drive. I would like to use the old one...


External hard drives don't need any program installed on your computer to run. Your operating system Windows, Linux should handle it as soon as you plug the usb in your computer. The programs included in your WD external hard drive are tools to backup your data.

If you try to hook up your hard drive to a Windows prior to XP, maybe your computer will not handle it.

It is always safer to safely remove your drive using the green arrow icon in the lower right corner of your screen. This way, the drive is shut down properly and you minimize chances of fails when you plug it again on another computer.

Hope this helps!

The WD hard disk 160GB is not recognized after plugging into USB


It is very possible that your BIOS will not support a large hard drive. Without more information on your system it will be hard to diagnose your problem.

My computer recognizes the WD but i cant view my files


Sounds like to me you already did the troubleshooting. If you cannot get the drive to function properly on another computer and it has the same symptoms, then logic would say that it is your drive. Note to also use a different cable to make sure it isn't the cable. I would try it on at least two more computers to make sure, hopefully with at least XP and Vista.
