1 TB WD Passport with not connect to Labtop

Okay so i have been reading alot of posts about this same issues and iv tried some things, i was just wondering if anything new has been tried by others. I am running windown 7 but have been for quite some time so i doubt that would be the problem. 

More describtion about my problem, My passport was working a months ago, i went on leave  (im in the military so im talking my two week leave from deployment) and came back wanted to watch a movie plugged it in, it made the plug and play noise, but doesnt show up under my computer,   this is what i have tried and got nothing.

* Unplugging and plugging it back in.

* Hard Restart on lap top 

* Jiggles the cords

* Uninstalled hardware and reinstalled it from WD website.

* Tried Firm ware update and nothing happened

* I downloaded the USB Device Viewer and this is what i got

Hey, I have the same problem since yesterday. Suddenly, the disk was not recognized anymore… nothing to do… I have lost 3 month of work… he is brand new…

IS not even on disk management or in other computers? What if you try a power booster cable?
