Question about Western Digital My Book Essential 1TB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive
My WD 1TB EHD has been working fine for months but recenently has my PC won't recognise it. The blue light is on (it used to flash when it was working properly and had 3 sections in a bar but now its just the centre bar thats on without blinking), and I can hear it spinning inside but it wont come up on any of my USB ports. I run Windows XP. Is it all over and I should throw the peice of junk against the wall or is there still hope?
Please remove the raw drive from the casing
if its a sata connect it directly to your pc using a power cable for sata drive and a data cable and connect it to the mother board
i am sure it would detect your drive
if no then your drive has lost its firm ware ata module or the rom bin file
if you know how to fix firmware the drive can be up again
pm me if you cant solve your problem
