I was not very clear on my message yesterday… the model I have is WDBAAF0010HBK
the problem started a few days ago, and I have tried to reboot and change USB port many times.
Replying your questions:
Does that drive spin up or make any noise?
Yes, it spins up.
Does it ask for any password?
Does the WD external HDD mount?
Only the WD Smartware mounts, the “real” drive does not mount
Have you try it on another computer?
I tried in my WindowsXP-laptop and in a Macbook with no success.
Have you try connect it via USB cable? I assumed you have 1394 cable.
The only connection I have is USB
Occasionally I’m able to see the drive using the Disk Utility…
