I came home one day and my drive was no longer being detected by my computer.
I found this post here which gives step by step troubleshooting instructions.
- I plugged it into a wall outlet, but I don’t feel it vibrating. I never really noticed the vibration when it worked before, so I don’t know how noticeable the vibration is.
- If I don’t feel it vibrating, does that definitely mean the drive is not “spinning up”? A light comes on inside and it appears to be on, but I don’t feel any vibrations. Is the vibration of it spinning up definitely noticable or is there a chance it is spinning up and I just can’t feel it?
- I assume it is not spinning up even though the light comes on inside.
- I want to order a power cable to continue my troubleshooting, but WD appears to be out of stock. Should I wait or can someone point me to another power adapter that will work?
Thanks in advance.
