SOURCE: External Hard Drive No Longer Recognized

hey im the same person who just posted above. i went to WD's website, and it said unplug the hard drive from the computer, and unplug it from the power source. then plug it into the power outlet, wait for it to spin up, then plug it in via USB/Firewire, whatever. it worked for me, so hopefully it will work for you.

My external hard drive got a virus had to reformat now computer wont recognize it


I am taking for granted that you are using Windows, not sure which version ( XP , 7, 8 , 8.1 )
and if I am correct, but your computer does not recognize the drive, make sure the usb port is one that will give power to the external drive. You should use USB2 or if available USB3. Those are powered.
Click the Search feature for the particular version of Windows you are running and search for "Disk Management"
Look for the partition of the external drive you are using. It will be given a letter other than C: drive. May be D: E: F: etc etc etc. Sometimes your optic drive is the D: drive, you may need to purchase a program like Everest Ultimate to locate ALL your items on the MOBO.
If your able to find the External in Disk Management, you should be able to format it, rename it, change its functions, etc etc.

Good Luck

My computer wont recognize my external hard drve and the io magic light is blinking


Try connecting the external hard-drive to a different computer. If it still fails, and it is still under warranty, then exercise the warranty to get it replaced.

If the warranty has expired, open the case, and remove the disk-drive, disconnecting it from the USB-to-disk-drive adapter.

Connect the disk-drive as a "slave" disk-drive in some desktop computer, to see if the disk is recognized.
If it is, then the USB-to-disk-drive adapter has failed, and you could go to any computer-store to buy a new external case and adapter, and mount your disk-drive inside the new case, and work with your files.

If the disk-drive is not recognized, check the warranty on the disk-drive itself.
