1 tb wd elements not detected even when the led is glowing

I have a 1 tb hdd which was detected by my system having windows 8.1 earlier but now its not detected checked in every port and the led keeps on glowing and even a sort of vibrations in the hdd connected .No problem with usb port the port works well with other external hdd of same specifications.It is not being detected by my system at all and even tried on other laptops as well but same problem.Any suggestions or help from your side is welcome.The warranty has ended just a month ago.


Hi, welcome to the community.

If you have tried different USB ports, different computer and different USB cables, most likely the drive is dead, you might want to try to contact tech support, even thought your drive is out of warranty they can provide support, and maybe they have some other tricks that could get the drive working again.
