Question about Computers & Internet
would you be able to help to fix my wd harddrive? My computer stopped reading my WD external harddrive (WDXMS1600) 160 GB. What shoud I do to fix this?
Try and use hirens boot cd to breath new life into the drive. It may just need to be repartitioned and reformatted to resolve the problem. Hirens can be found through a google search and it's a free download. All you need to do is burn it to disk. Then enter your bios and make sure that you can boot from your cd/dvd drive. After that move through the hard drive tools and see what you can find wrong with it. More often then not you'll find the problem using this fine boot disk. However, if it doesn't work then there is one other possible method.

it's a last resort method to trying to revive a hard drive. Sometimes it works. Most of the time the drive is dead and gone.
