Question about Western Digital Computers & Internet
Connect it to a different computer, to see if the problem continues.
If so, then the WD Elements has two major components:
* the disk-drive inside the enclosure
* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter
Disassemble the enclosure, and extract the disk-drive, and directly connect it as a "slave" device in a desktop computer, and see if you can read the files.
As a last resort, search online for "data recovery services", which are commercial companies that will disassemble the disk-drive, and repair it just long-enough to copy your files. Not cheap, but if you REALLY need to get the pictures, it's your "last-hope".
