    The hardrive contains data for more than 100 GB . If I formatted it, I would lose them!!!

    I misunderstood then what you need is a program that allows you to download your info or upload what ever you are trying to do.

I cant seem to use my 320 gb mobile hard drive. when i connect it to the usb, my laptop reads it but i cant save files into me please.

try to connect your device into your pc and then, try to save files again, if this doesnt work, try to reformat your hard drive, im sorry to say that all your previous files will be deleted upon the format. after this, make partitions to hard drive. then save some of your files into it. if that doesn't work either, try a disk scan to check if your hard drive has bad sectors.

Wd external hard drive stopped working

Sounds like you need to create a new partition, and if you find that a partition already exists, delete it and create another.

Wd 320 external hdd acting up

WD has had issue with eir enclosures if you fixed the partition there is the possibilityt that you lost information in the process.

On thisng that you can do is remove the drive from the current WD enclosure and buy an new one. Then try to see if youa re able to locate any of your files. Also check to see if it reports any available space if it still does not then the actual hard drive hase the issue and you will need to buy a new one.
