Question about Western Digital Computers & Internet
It most likely is not dead. the board that adapts from the hard drive to the usb is normally what goes bad. you can purchase a 2.5" external hard drive enclosure to transfer the hard drive into once you take it out of the passport casing. if you use an old credit card or a thin flat head screw driver you should be able to pop the casing off of the passport to get to the hard drive. but there is still a chance that the hdd could be dead. just more likely the adapter board.
