My wd pasport essential is not running when i attach it to my computer(hp dv6 pavillion). the light comes on but it will not open.


this drive is probably protected. you should try to unlock it first before you can access the drive.

when you plugin the drive you should have a temporary drive where unlock application resides.
run the application then type in your password.

if you don't have the password i guess there is no way to access the drive.
