My Passport is “beeping” when plugged into my USB port and it is not detected by my computer. I can see the My Passport 0740 under my Device Manager, but cannot access it. The Properties will even show up.
I have not dropped, bumped, or otherwise stressed the Passport. I carry it in a protective case, in a padded backpack. I tried all my USB Port and a second computer, so it’s not my computer. I waited 10-hours to give it time to cool off, but that did not work. I do not keep it plugged in for extended periods of time.
All I want to do at this point is retrieve some files that I have backed-up in a while. I tried Minitool Power Data Recovery, but it did not work.
