My Passport is broken

I Have a passport and as of recently it has begun to act funny. When I plug it in to my computer the WD smartware doesn’t pop up. I unistalled the drive hoping that it would give me the option to reinstalle it but the WD smartware doesn’t pop up on my computer. I don’t know if the cord has a short in it or what. Can someone help me?

This is typical bug related to Smartware. Try uninstalling and reinstalling Smartware. Check whether you have disabled Windows Auto run feature for your drive.

How do I do that? It also seems to be making a weird noise too

You have returned after 3 weeks… anyway, can you elaborate “weird noise”?
