All of a sudden, my passport 1TB cannot be recognized on PC. I tried different PC, both laptop and desk computer, both WIN7 and mac, also changed a cable, not working. I have all of my photos over these years in it, I hate that I didn’t have them backup again!!
At first, my WIN7 recognized 2 of all 5 partitions, and for the other 3, it said “need format before use”. Then I unplug my passport and plug it in again, only heard the “beep” and the light on my passport is on, and it sound working. But I cannot find it under “my computer”.
I download the driver from WD and install it:
and I can see the following in “device management”:
When I clicked “Open devices and Printers”, I can see my passport:
Finally, I download the WD Data LifeGuard Diagnostics, and it showed my passport is not available, sometimes it even didn’t show on the list. I failed to run a quick test on it, as it seems not taking any progress for a very long time or now it just didn’t show up in the list so I cannot run the test.
I searched on the forum, saw many people had the similar problem, but not exactly the same. I hope someone can help me to get my data, all of my photos, sign…
