It may need to be plugged into a powered USB hub to get it to work.
I've had the same problem on certain PCs and plugging it directly into a powered hub resolves that problem. I picked up a small powered hub just for that reason that I keep with my drives.

SOURCE: replacement power cables
Can find them on eBay, if you can narrow down on the manufacture date. For the model I had, either Acbel AD6008 OR Asian Power Devices (APD) DA-30C01 work. I ordered a replacement which worked - but my real problem was needing a new hard drive casing. So now I have 2 power cords I don't need...but at least I have my data.

Take it our of the external encasing and plug it in directly to your motherboard. This has worked for me in the past. I just had my second wd external harddrive crash so now I will do the same process all over again.
