I was using mypassport elite fine with no issues, until I accidentally disconnected it from my PC without using the “safely remove USB drive” option.
Now the VCD drive won’t mount, Vista does not detect it, only Disk Management sees it as a one block uninitialized disk. Tried to initialize but says disk is password protected - I had used the WD smartware password feature.
Is there anyway I can download the VCD’s unlocker (unlock.exe) program to try to unlock my drive? Tried most usual options like using original USB cables, changing USB ports, try on another PC etc, the drive just will not get detected / VCD won’t mount. Only the LED is on, even the capacity gauge indicators are off.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
