[QUOTE=Ayiramala;2542842]Just had a problem with my WD external hard disk. It stopped working all of a sudden. The light on the drive is on, the ‘Safely remove’ icon shows up in the notification area, but the drive is not shown under ‘My Computer’. I don’t think thta the disk is spinning inside the drive; I can’t feel anything by touching it. The letters WD appears under Disk Drives in Device Manager. It can’t be seen in ‘Disk Management’. I tried it on many other computers, with the same result. What is to be done?[/QUOTE]
It might be possible to remove the drive and check it out in your PC but I’m afraid it’s quite possible that your drive is a goner.
