I had 3 external HDD - so i got myself an enclosure that holds 4 sata disks.
I removed the HDD from the external hard drives - the samsung and hitatchi drives worked fine in my new enclosure – but the WD green drive out of my My Book Essential WDBAAF0020HBK 2TB – will not work!!
The enclosure will not pick it up.
Is this because of the smarware on the drive?
I’ve tried everything to remove the smartware - and think i may have - as my drive shows i have 1.81TB of free space (which looks right for a 2TB drive)
So why is it not working in my enclosure? The other drives worked stright away.
I’d love to hear if there is another way to remove the smartware - or get my WD drive working.
Thanks for the help!
