if it is under warranty I would recommend you have western digital replace it. But otherwise it would be the board inside and most likely it was custom made for the enclosure. You could try looking on ebay for one of a similar type (not size) that the drive is dead but the other hardware is not. you may be able to swap it that way but it won't be easy.

My hard-disk is on-Warrenty basis.On hardisk light is blinking but unable to detect on pc ,So Please tell me the procedure how to recover my data. P/N-WDBAAA5000ABK-00 S/N-WXM1A80N4025N


Can you hear the drive spinning when you connect it to your computer? A spinning sound means your external drive is being powered by the USB from your computer - there are several reasons the drive is not being recognized.
If you are not hearing any spinning sound the drive could be damaged.
Does the drive get recognized by any another computer? If yes - check disk management and see if security is enabled on the drive. Also - check to see if there is a drive letter assigned to your external hard drive.

My hard drive wont read it worked before dont know why


A disk-drive has several major components:
* the electronics circuit-board
* the power/data external connectors
* the motor that spins the disk-drive
* the read/write mechanism that moves above the recording surface
* the recording surfaces

No power means no "spin", and nothing happens.

Dead motor means no "spin", and nothing happens.

Dead electronics on the circuit-board means that nothing happens.

Damaged read/write mechanism.

Damaged recording surfaces.

DVDRW416 not working


I believe this drive is faulty as it should try and spin light up upon power-up even if it only has the power cable connected.
