Question about Western Digital Passport WDXML800UE (WDXML800UETE) 80 GB Hard Drive
My USB WD Exteral Hard Drive was installed by Windows XP But it is no longer displayed in MY COMPUTER please help
I can see that I was experient the same problem with my WD external.
I keep on unplug it but it doesnt show on my computer.
So now its show on my computer by doing the plug in on external on this way
Follow this step carefully
1. Plug in the power chord to your external(don't plug in the usb yet to the computer)
2. Plug in the end on the usb to the computer
3. After 10sec plug in the other end of the usb to the external Hard Drive.
Wait there for about 5 min depent on the speed of your computer to regonise the external, than you can see a file autoplay showing loading your external drive content.
After its load you can check on my computer the drive shows there
Hope this will help

I had the exact same problem. I plugged it in over and over again, deleted the drivers, everything. I plugged it into my laptop and nothing. Then I plugged it in to another desktop and it worked there. I went back to my original desktop which it quit on and it opened! Now it works fine.
Good luck, I had this problem for months.
