I bought the WD10EARS three weeks ago and installed it as a second hard drive. It worked like a charm no problems. I added my wife’s internal hard drive from her laptop that fried to get info off of it, and all three drives showed up fine. I was able to get info off of my wife’s hard drive and still access the new WD I had in there. After a couple of days, the WD just disappeared. No noises, no glitching, it’s just gone.
I removed my wife’s old hard drive and rebooted but still gone. I switched it to a new bay and different cables, still gone. Not seen by Windows 7 64bit or the BIOS. Taking it out, it is slightly warm to the touch, so it seems to be getting power.
I would just simply send it back and get another but, like a fool, I trusted this new drive and moved, not copied, my 72 GB’s of music over to it. I’d hate to have to spend a whole day ripping my CD’s back again.
Do I have any options?
Thanks in advance.
