If you can't resolve this by contacting the retailer from which you purchased this drive, you can go to http://support.wdc.com/ and check the warranty status. As long as the unit is under warranty, Western Digital will provide you with an RMA number and instructions on how to ship the drive back to them for exchange or repair.

You can try placing it into an external hard drive caddy (your internal plugs into it)
The device will plug in usb 2.0 and recognize as an external drive.


If the drive is unrecognizable, than unfortunately it has physically failed and costs to recovery data are very high.
Always have 2 forms of backup for all data.

Every time windows tells you to format the drive, copy your data to your computer then format it. when windows detect problems on the drive, it will launch ckdsk, well i dont know hoy to fix it, try plugging it in then reboot.

My External Hard drive is not recognized and makes sound


Have you tried connecting your external to some other computer or OS, will the same problem occur?

Well, in thiscase the MOST effective way is to try some so-called data recovery software to see if you can find some data back. Recommend you have a try of Wondershare Data Recovery. Get the program from its site.
data recovery (for Windows OS)
Mac data recovery (for Mac OS X)

Good luck. I hope that my reply has shed some light on the problem! Remember - Always make Backups of your precious data!

I have the 80GB WD passport and it suddenly stopped working one day.  The unit lights up but nothing else.  Finally I cracked the case open and found, as I suspected, that the drive is simply a SATA laptop drive with a SATA-to-USB conversion card built in.  I suspected that the card was **** so I disconnected it and used a USB hard drive adapter (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=3770&name=USB_Hard_Drive_Adapter) and I can read/write to the drive just fine.  Best part is that the adapter I use has its own power supply so I'm not pulling juice through the USB cable for a SATA drive. 
Even though mine "works" again I don't recommend these drives to anyone.  They're just not sturdy enough or well designed.

Does you drive make any sounds like these? If yes you have a mechanical problem and you should get a specialist to work on it.
If not - try to remove the drive from the enclosure and connect it directly to the computer to recover your files.
