Question about Western Digital Passport WDXML800UE (WDXML800UETE) 80 GB Hard Drive
In hurry, I unplugged my WD Passport (400U017-RTE), I had a folder open which I thought was from PC "My Documents" but unfortunately no. When I plugged my WD Passport, it could not be recognized i.e. I cannot see it on "My Computer". It's working i.e. the blue led on the device is lighting.
If the the circuitry in the box has got shorted or the circuit plate of the hdd has gone faulty in power supply section, do you think that the hdd led will lights up normally?
Thank you for assistance
