Connect the WD Passport to a different computer, to see if YOUR computer is the problem.

If that does not help, any external disk-drive has two major components, inside the enclosure:
* disk-drive
* USB-to-disk-drive adapter

Open the case, and disconnect the disk-drive from the adapter, and remove the disk-drive. Connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if the files can be "directly" read from the disk-drive.

Computer is not working


The computer may be in hibernate or standby. Try pressing the space bar, and then wait a moment. See if anything happens. If nothing happens, press the power button for one second and wait a moment and see if anything happens. If nothing occurs, you may need to force a restart.

To force a restart, hold in the power button for approximately 15-20 seconds, this should force the computer to turn off all the way. If holding the power button doesn't do the trick - you can unplug the computer from the wall and take out the laptop battery as a last resort.

Once you are sure the computer is off all the way, press the power button and see if anything at all shows on the screen. If you are not able to see any information on the screen, it is possible that the Laptops screen has gone bad. If you have an external monitor you can try to plug into it and see if anything shows. If nothing shows, it is possible the video card/motherboard is gone bad.

To fully diagnose a bad motherboard or video card - you would need to take it to a qualified computer technician.

Hi, My Samsung YP-U3 has been really great up until now. But now, When I put it into my Computer (USB"s), it doesn't show up on "My Computer" (where it show's C, D, Drive etc) only...


Have you tried booting into safe mode and seeing if the problem persists? If it can be detected in safe mode, then there is a possibility your USB drivers are corrupted, and will need a re-install. To do this, remove all USB devices from ports, disable USB in your Start/Settings/Control panel/System, and reboot. Windows will then detect them at boot, and install the drivers needed to get them back up and running again.
Hope that helped.
Cheers from NZ

How can i recoup my music files from my portable drive


Yes, most likely the disk is gone.
Last hope attempt: take out the hard disk from the case and put it directly in a desktop pc; in there, if the disk still had some life left in it, try to recover your files using a recovery program.

How can I uninstall WD and restore my computer to its original Pt


sounds like you have moved Itunes and your music on to the WD hard drive,

auto run for WD should be on the external already preloaded,
so plug in the drive and find your files,then copy them back on to your computer,
Update your antiviruss protection to the latest definitions
Next do a viruss scan and check for any virusses,etc
Updates on your computer also change settings so theres another thing to take into consideration,also have your added and new softwares lately?

Not Detected on PC


Since you say that it is detected in Device Manager and is shown as working properly, it would appear that the problem is that it is not getting a drive letter. Have you added anything recently that might take up a drive letter like a flash drive? If so, try removing both and then plugging the WD back in. If this is not the case or does not help, do this:

Assuming you are using XP.
Right click on My Computer and select Manage
The computer Management window will open, click on Disk Management
Do you see the WD in the window on the right?
Does it show a drive letter?
If not, you can assign it one by right clicking on it and selecting Change Drive Letter and Paths ...

If the WD does not show up in Disk Management, possible problems are:
1) USB cable is damaged, try another one.
2) USB circuits in the WD case not working properly, hard drive can be removed and put into another case.
3) WD USB case is good, hard drive is good but there is a loose connection inside. Open case and reseat everything.
4) WD USB case is good but the hard drive inside has gone bad (worst case scenario)
