First make sure usb cable connected to harddrive is working fine.
try it in different usb ports.
Press windows key +R key so you can see run then type in run "devmgmt.msc" then press ok so you can see device manager uninstall all usb drivers then it automatic install usb drivers.
then check.
Also you need to change registry for that type in run "regedit" then press ok then you can see registry editor then locate below key.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11 CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
And remove upper filter and lower filter.Then restart computer then check.
Try your harddrive in different computer if it is not recognized on another computer too then your harddrive has internal issue.

Let me know if you need further assistance.

replace the hard drive with a solid state hard drive as it is failing
while you have it partitioned , that is only 2 sections on the one disc and if the hard drive is failing , regardless of of the partitions , it will not read right
If you will , consider partitions as different tracks on an album and if the player is broken then none of the tracks will play properly

If you are using a usb hub disconnect it completely and try connecting your Western Digital directly to a usb port on your laptop. If that doesn't work try booting into safe mode and see if it shows up then. If it works in safe mode a recent update to your virus program or another program could be blocking it. Hope I was of some help , Thanks for using FixYa

Its a usb drive. when i turn on the power. it


hi I am vortash it will show 0kbs in the management if it hasn't been installed as the system can't read it . I was wondering if the hard drive was installed with the lead in the wrong way as that is what it sounds like , ( I mean in the housing the ide plug may be up side down ) I have had a couple like this and the customer has made this very common mistake ,.. check this first then if you have a disk with the Fanton program on install it without it being connected so when you reboot after pluugging it in it finds it and loads the drivers itself ... I hope this solves your problem Regards Vortash

500 gB doesn't respond to anything!


Leave it unplugged for a minute or so and see if it boots up.
Check the Power supply if it still works.
