Welcome to the Community.

Is your hard drive detected on other computers? When did it stop being recognized?

I am having a same problem and cant get any idea what to do next. Mine has worked before and i have had taken around 2-3 backups on it earlier, but now its not showing up though the light is blinking on it. 

My problem is sorted read and try this out

I’m having the same issue. I have a brand My Passport Ultra and its not being detected on a new macbook Pro. But its working just fine on my old Macbook pro. The old computer isn’t running Yosemite. 

What can I do to get the harddrive to work on my new computer?


Maybe you should try contacting WD’s Technical Support about this. You can do so either by phone or email.
