If your computer came with a motherboard disc the drivers could be on it
click start control panel administrive tools ,computer management ,device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or
if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again, sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable,
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems
hope this helps

Hi and welcome khaksh ,
Connect your passport to your lap .
Let your antivirus full scan the content of it .
Complete the scan with MalwareBytes , a powerfull malware killer :
http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html
To completely finish the job , have the content of your lap fully scanned by both applications .
When you are shure both pc and passport are virus free , try accessing locked files as administrator .
I hope this will help you .
Best regards ,

If your system detects the connected device that is a good start. Was the drive formatted for another operating system? Certainly try the drive on another system and/or another drive on your system.

How would I set up WD Passport as a permanent back up for my lap top? How do I erase the Passport from a previous transfer of info or does it automatically erase itself after a data transfer?


no it will never erase automatically ether erasing by data. some recovery software can recover it very easily. best way is to use 3 party software or replace your laptop hdd.
