Yes, probably. Take a try this software to recover data from WD firstly. If it doesn't help, then take the device for data recovery services if the data is really important to you.

Remember - DO keep the deivice safe from data overritten or physical damage. Regards.

Lost pictures


Depending on the exact failure, you have a couple of options. A friend of mine had a similar drive with important photos an it turned out the drive itself was OK, the enclosure had failed. I removed the drive from the enclosure, and connected it to another system with a drive adapter, and recovered the data.
If the actual HDD in the enclosure failed, you can contact a data recovery company like www.drivesavers.com and get an estimate on data recovery (Generally very expensive, just depends on the importance of the data)

I have XP and my WD hard drive will not recognize?


Try a different "data" cable between the computer and the WD unit.

Try connecting the unit to a different computer.
If it still does not work, then either:
* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter, inside the casing, has failed,
* the disk-drive, inside the casing, has failed.

Disassemble the unit, and remove the disk-drive.
Connect the disk-drive as a "slave" disk-drive to a computer, to see if the disk-drive is OK, i.e., the USB-interface is the problem.

Copy the serial-number of the disk-drive, and use it to "check warranty status" on WD's web-site. If the drive is still under warranty, WD will replace it.
If not under warranty, WD has a "Customer Loyalty Program", i.e., buy another MyBook through their web-site, and get about a 20% discount, as a current WD customer.
