SOURCE: My computer does not recognize
if u are using a external hard disk case with the normal hard disk
try connecting your hard disk with a new casing.
if it is made as a external hard disk change the cable .
because after a few time usage the cable will not be quite good as new.
After inserting the usb cable in your pc if it shows any warning
information, or any message just give me that too for exact solution

It may be due to the file system. If formated as FAT32 files larger than 4gb may not transfer. Try reformatting as NTFS to fix the problem.

I couldn't stop it from backing up, so used "force quit" from the activity monitor. It was still running a background service (WDMemeoAgent?). I stopped that from an icon left in my tool bar. I don't think I use it since it estimated 30-40 for the first backup of my home folder and it wouldn't allow me to pause or quit.

My hard drive was dead and wasn't recognized by the computer, it didn't even start, just a few clicking noises, which according to some of the experiences is the same as a DEAD Hardisk. Anyways, as I read that sometimes this happens as a result of a hit, well, I wacked my HD as a last hope for it to recover its "memory" (as in the movies) and believe me or not, it worked! I don't know if this might help yours, but it saved mine!
The way I did it was like this: I started the pc and when the HD started to run and I heard a couple of clicks, I hit it against the table while in vertical position (assuming that the arm of the HD might slightly move better that way) one time, and then when the spinning and the first click was heard agin I hit again. After that I heard the typical searching sound of a HD, and you can imagine I started to pray that what I heard wasn't my anxiety sound (if it has any). Now I am a firm believer in the old trick of whacking the old TV to get the vital signal back!
Good luck to you too!
