My wd passport drive is not showing up in the windows system image recovery option

i am using windows 8 pro 64 bit , i had made a system image on my wd passport drive, but when i am trying to recover the system image through recovey options on windows at pc startup its not recognized by windows to recover system image how to solve this issue?    

I recommend you to check the following link, since this does not appear to be a problem with the Passport itself.

If the problem continues, try running a DLG test to rule out any possible hardware damage.

thanx for your response jubei04, but the link you had given me had no hint of resolving my issue. 

Hi again, none of the advice from the other users worked? Can you access the Passport from the Computer window?
