10 days ago I bought a “WD Elements 1TB Desktop” but it refuses to work after plugging it in 3 times.
I bought it so I could transfer stuff from one PC to another but when I plugged it in into the laptop I heard it spin up over and over but never showing up on the laptop itself while It did install and work correctly the first time I plugged it in.
Someone told me to uninstall it in Device Manager and restart the PC so it could reinstall… but it didn’t. And now it won’t show up anywhere I look.
Windows Driver corrupted bust doesnt say which one
If it doesnt show up in Device Manager/Other PC its basicly dead.
Thing is I manually took it out of Device Manager, the HDD still spins up and the lights keep flashing.
So is there any chance I can fix this? I can’t believe the drive has failed already after 3 times spinning up right? .
