I have an ooooooold (2007) MyBook Essential Edition 500GB external hard drive (model number WD5000C032) that I am attempting to access. The power cord died a few years back and I just ordered a new one. When I plug it in, the LEDS flash with a click sound, but that is all it does. It does not appear as a device/drive in device manager or in Disk Management.
Are there drivers I need to access? Or is it likely that this is bricked?
Many thanks for any help you can provide.
