for two days now, i have been unable to access my WD external hard drive. once i plug it to the laptop, there is the normal sound you get when you plug an external device to the system, however, i never see the external drive to access. The only thing i see is CD drive (G), apart from the DVD RW drive (E). Please what could be the problem and how may i resolve this?
Did you replace the USB cable? Is your hard drive detected within Windows Disk Management?
How to access Disk Management in Windows to manage hard drives
The hard drive is detected in disk management window, I have not replaced the USB. The hard drive is working extremely slowly, even when I try to copy a file from the hard drive or delete a file, it does everything at a painfully slow speed.From: TrancerSent: Tuesday, November 24, 2015 7:46 PMTo: email@example.comReply To: WD CommunitySubject: [WD Community] [WD External Drives/External Drives for PC] Dysfunctional external hard drive
