I just got a 1TB Elite. Transferred 90GB of music and movies to it. Next day, I was promted for a firmware and software update. I did the firmware update as instructed via WD website. Now my external drive will not respond. When I plug it into the USB drive, Windows will not recognize or … Windows does recognize, asks to install new hardware, then Windows cannot find software.
Running VCD, the scan will not find my drive. 5 years with a Seagate drive and no problems. Upgrade to this “better” drive and POW. Years on music and movie collections all gone.
How much does data recovery cost?
