Hi,

It seems that your Harddrive has problems with internal Micro USB connector. WD, Transcend and Seagate brands are having such kind of problems.

Try to adjust the micro usb cable in such a way that your data transfer or ongoing activity will not hamper. Else to have perfect solution on your problem, backup complete data from the HDD and hand-over the HDD to the nearest WD technical department.

They may diagnose the issue and if not resolvable, will handover new WD Harddrive.

Thanks,
Amar

Shut down your computer and unplug the device. Then turn your computer back on, log in, wait for it to finish loading, then connect the drive and turn it on.

It makes three noises when i plug into comp and wont show up in menu of external hardrives


When it makes noises when you plug it into your computer it means that the computer aknowledged that you plugged it in. Depending on the speed and state of its autoplay feature you may have to wait up to 5 mins for it to load depending on speed of your computer and USB hub. If it then still does not recognize by having a box pop up saying "autoplay" or a box prompting you to do things with the drive then your autoplay feature is no longer working or a file was deleted causing it to crash. Try deleting the driver for this device and then rebooting your computer and plug it in again for the first time to see if all the drivers will load, problem should then be fixed. You need to go to control panel ---->System-------->Device Manager to find the driver for the drive.

Connect the external disk-drive to another computer.
If it still is not recognized, then you have a problem:
* the USB-to-disk-drive interface inside the case is faulty,
* the disk-drive inside the case is faulty.

If the former, disassemble the casing, and extract the disk-drive,
and temporarily connect it as an "internal" and "slave" disk-drive to your desktop, and see if you can read the files.
