Question about Western Digital Passport WDXML800UE (WDXML800UETE) 80 GB Hard Drive
My computer recognizes the WD passport, however, the passport won't "boot" so the computer can retrieve data....????
Unfortunately, these drives are not made to be dropped.
It sounds like it was damaged by the drop which could have rendered the read/write heads inoperable or mis-aligned.
Contact Western Digital for a warranty replacement.
