Question about Western Digital External USB 2.0 80 GB Hard Drive
I have a Western Digital 2.5 inch black Passport. It was working fine for a long time. I backed up a bunch of data to it and then formated my PC. Now the drive wont work on any computers I've tried. The device manager shows it as a drive labeled "WD" but it doesn't show up in disk management, or my computer. It sounds like it is trying to spin up when its plugged in sort of a two toned sound repeated three times and then a couple of clicks. Any ideas?
Ok that sounds really bad. That sounds like a drive head failure. I can show you examples:
and this, starting at 2:45:
Get it checked out by a hard drive recovery service. If u want to see if u can get it to work before you get it serviced, you could try putting it in the refrigerator or freezer for a short while and testing it.
I would just go straight to the recovery service.
