Question about Western Digital Passport WDXML800UE (WDXML800UETE) 80 GB Hard Drive
I was copying some video files for my dvd player and I had to rapidly shutdown my computer because there was a storm aproaching last night with lots of lightning. Power never went to house and we were not struck so not the issue. When I tried to sonnect my WD passport to the computer the hd makes a high pitch beping like it is emmiting a trouble code like an old modem. It is recognized by the computer in the usb panel and in Disk Managment it shows up a disk 7 not initialized when I try to init it I get errors with both option. Running Vista 64bit updated on a HP rig 8g ram. This hardrive has been nothing but trouble since the day I bought it. I fixed this problem once b4 by dloading a seagate prog but I cant find the one I neeed.
Look...If you shut down a hard drive while it is operating it can be damaged. The hard drive is psinning very fast and when you cut the power to it the read head drops down on the platter and will corrupt data and possibly do some damage to the read head or platter. You can try to format the drive with my computer(do not use quick format) an then do a disk check.
