Question about Western Digital Computers & Internet
It looks like the device has failed.
Below is what I got and I did a little research. It may help you.
I had the same problem with a WD external hard drive. I tried it in multiple computers and it was never recognized. I uninstalled the driver from the same screen where you see the error 43 message, then swapped the USB cable connecting the drive... and then the computer detected it. It suggested a chkdsk which I ran, it looks like its back to normal now
Do a chkdsk by go to Start and run, key in cmd and click on OK and key in chkdsk at black command prompt,
Good luck, don't forget to rate me if it helps. Thanks

known problem, that might be fixed by a cold start. switch off your PC or laptop completely. even pull the power lead from the wall, (in laptop remove power supply and battery once switched off) wait a few minutes and power up and start your machine.
I hope this was helpful
