I have a wd1600d032 external drive which has been working perfectly over the last 7 years. As of recent it is no longer showing up in my computer (Dell Laptop XP os).
The device has power.
Attempted using new usb cables
Rebooted numerious times
The issue still occurs when I try another XP or Windows 8 laptop.
What I did notice in device manger I can see under Disks, WD External USB Device but under USB it is saying unknown device.
Any ideas what to try next?
