My WD element extrenal hard drive won't open. i can see it in my devices, and the blue light stays on. it also makes the sound saying it's connected but I can't see the device in my comput


First thing, try to change the cable, try a different one, then if it does not work, try to connect the hard drive on another computer, and changing cables as well. This will help you to narrow down the problem to find out exactly what the matter is. If the Hard drive spins properly and it does not produce any click-click sound then it is fine. If all the above fail, then you have to slave the hard drive using its internal SATA connection. You have to open up the hard drive and remove the pin that connects the hard drive to the cable. This will enable you to see the SATA connection. Slave the Hard drive on a desktop computer and see if you can gain access to it. If you can, then consider replacing both the cable and the pin that connects the cable to the hard drive. If your hard drive just spins and you can not access it while its a slave to another computer, then the hard drive has a problem.... Try the methods above, i believe your hard drive did not go this bad...

check by removing the battery then put it back again power it on, or without battery power it on directly then check, if still the same problem, the fault is in the motherboard of the laptop, better take it the service center or consult some technician in your area

Light is on but no one is home.


please remove the raw drive from the casing
if its a sata connect it directly to your pc using a power cable for sata drive and a data cable and connect it to the mother board
i am sure it would detect your drive
if no then your drive has lost its firm ware ata module or the rom bin file

if you know how to fix firmware the drive can be up again
pm me if you cant solve your problem

Blinking lights and not recognized by computer


Try to remove the internal drive from enclosure and connect directly to PC. Does it show up this way?

Red Light/Blue Light I/O Error


My nx2 is working again after having the "red light/blue light/I/O Error" problem. I just:

1. turned off my computer
2.unplugged the HD,
3. took out the HD from the enclosure and plugged it back into the enclosure,
4.started up my computer without the HD being plugged in
5. after my computer had been on for a minute, I plugged the HD in and my computer recognized it and had the proper mixture of red and blue light coming from the HD, indicating it's working properly.

Good luck!

Blinking blue light


the only blue light that i know blinks is the Kmart blue light special .. we need model of things you're working with to properly diagnose.
is it external drive ? with a blue light blinking ? is it connected in usb ? sounds like if its external drive with blinking light could be bad hard disk or bad controller card inside that translates ide to usb.

Likely a power or power connection problem.

I squeezed the cruzer's connector for tighter fit to PC and that works. I also found that my laptop coming back from standby might not redeliver power to USB--PC needs restart. Also, if not already tried, plug it into another port on the machine.

Because I had to open cruzer to fix detached socket, I notice socket connection to circuit is not reinforced. If cruzer socket had been bent, there may now ba a defective connection between socket and board.
