I just bought a new Passport drive WDBPKJ0050BBK-WESN. The software does not recognize that the drive is connected nor does it see my older My Book drive. Any suggestion on how to get this software to see at least the newer drive?

If needed, you can also switch to Stellar Data Recovery Professional software to create a disk image and perform data recovery.
Hope it helps!
