  1. 1TB WD won`t show up on my computer!


    I got this problem that my Hard drive is not been seen by my laptop.I have tried many different ways solving it but it didn`t work once.I

    have tried to change the letter, to format it, to turn it online but nothing works because i can`t accesse it and it show up as gray.When i open Disk Manager the computer says it is unkown and not initialized and it doesn`t show the capacity as well.When i try to initialize it, it shows to different settings.First MBR and GPT but i have tried both of them and it shows that the REQUEST WAS FAILED DUE TO A FATAL DEVICE HARDWARE ERROR.I have also watched several YT videos but it didn`t help.I have also thought about the cable broken but as it only 3 months new is i wouldn`t really consider it as possible.Never has it fallen or anything.It worked yesterday evening but as for today it won`t show up.

    Please Help

    :)

    WD MyBook Essentials 1TB Not Detected on Win10

    Hello! I recently upgraded to Windows 10 and can no longer use my WD MyBook Essentials 1TB external hard drive now. The computer does not detect it at all, despite the fact that it is switched on and running (whirring sound and light is on). I have three
    other hard drives that all function fine, including a newer WD that I purchased to replace the MyBook. The MyBook is an older hard drive, so I wanted to back up the files from it with the newer WD. However, only the new WD shows up under "This PC."

    I know that the WD is functional, because it was running without any issues on my old PC. I unplugged it from my old PC, gave the old PC to a family member, and then plugged the hard drive into my new PC. That is when I discovered that the new PC would not
    detect it.

    I went to Device Manager as well as "Manage" under the "This PC" button from the Start Menu, but cannot locate the 1TB hard drive anywhere. It's like the computer is just not "seeing" it. I spent a lot of time researching on the forums and Internet, but
    most everyone seems to be having problems with getting it to read while it is showing somewhere on the computer. Unfortunately, I am not that far along; I am struggling just to get it to be detected so that I can find it somewhere on the PC.

    I tried using the cable from the newer hard drive, but that did not make any difference. I also updated all my drivers and that too made no difference.

    My PC specs:

    Windows 10 Home Edition

    Intel i7-6700K @ 4.0 GHz

    16 GB of RAM

    64-bit processor

    External hard drive is a Western Digital My Book Essentials 1TB with USB 3.0

    Any advice or assistance would be greatly appreciated!

    Why won't my hard drive show up under my computer?

    Can you show me the steps of how to format the 1tb hdd for windows 7 64bit? How was I able to format ssd without doing anything to it. It recognized it like that.
