I have this model.
The light (from the storage level bar and lock icon) has been blinking nonstop.
When I try to access the drive from My Computer, it will show up only as “Local Disk (K: )” When I double click it, it will either tell me it’s a nonexistant disk/drive/ or that I would have to format it (but later formatting doesn’t work as well).
In my WD Drive Status (from taskbar tray), it will say that it has 0% of files.
All I’ve ever done to it is accidentally nudged the power source today. But I don’t think that it should do much damage, as this device was set to withstand non- ‘Safely Remove’ and I had a lot of power outages in the past.
Can somebody give me some hope of a miracle that it will come back to life after a few reboots? Or at least tell me why it’s blinking?
Thank you very much in advance.
P.S.: WD, you **bleep**. … That wasn’t even a bad word.
