1.I will suggest you please partitioned it properly.

2. Check your Registry. Some times people use to FIX Registry for Reading multiple Partitioned External Drive.
3. You must require partition.

4. Have you check the cable which was supplied with the HD. As other cable may not support properly.

If you wrote zeros to the drive then there is no way of recovering the data. All you can do is format it and start over.

WD 500 GB Passport Formatting error

you may have a FAT32/NTFS format problem between your wd500 and your pc. or differently formatted partitions. right click on their device letters on 'my computer' and look at 'properties'. should tell you how they're formatted and # of partitions, etc.
just a guess!
good luck!

Hello, I have a western digital HD...that has two 465 gb partitions. How do I combine them into one. There is no media on the drive yet

Go to your control panel and then administrative tools, select Computer Management.

Now select Disk Management and expand the window.

Your drive should be listed here, if not then you need to check your computer hardware has not got any issues before proceeding.

If your drive is listed and says healthy then right click on it an select Properties,

In here you can delete partitions.

Delete the last one first

Now delete the first one.

Now right click the drive and select Format. Choose NTFS as the file system and do not tick any boxes you do NOT want quick format. Again start and let it do its thing. When it is done restart your computer and you should be good to go.

Western digital hard drive 200 gb drive noy detected

Try putting it on another computer. Try changing out the usb cable. If you are in windows, you can:
Go to - Control Panel\Administrative Tools\computer management
Then go to the storage section, and click on disk management. Does the drive show up there? (It may not have a drive letter). If that is the case, it may not be setup correctly, or lost its fat table.. you can assign drive letters here as well as format as needed.

Can Not Copy Video Files

Click Properties, and check formatting. I had one of those, and it was FAT32, so it will only except a a certain size of files. All you need to do is right click on it and select format. This could take a while.

Auto Play

With the drive plugged in, go to My Computer, and right click on your drive. Select Properties from the menu, and click on the Autoplay tab. Click on the "Select Action to Perform..." and select "Take No Action" from the menu. That should stop Windows from ever asking you what to do with the drive in the future.

Dantz software?

I think the MS PRO portion is for a card reader for formating a memory stick if you have one, if not don't worry.
