I am having the same issue. I have a WD elite 320gb. It was working fine today. I saved a document. Came back to the computer a few minutes later and it was not recognized. I unplugged it and reconnected. I have tried a different cable and a different computer. The power is on, it whirs, but MS “does not recognize the device”. When troubleshooting, it says no driver is installed and cannot find one. I am a teacher and finals begin on Monday. I’m in desperate need of my data now. Someone on a different site has suggested using a shorter cable (6 in). I will have to try that at home. I will post if it works! In the mean time, if you find success, please post!
now i get it hehehe. about try another cable…i don´t think it will solve the problem, the best you can do is go to some store that can get your data back, its expensive but it worth the price.
i´ve lost all my portfolio because of wd :(
mine is a 1tb hd, so…i think you´re lucky to have a 320gb hehe, the recover will be more cheaper
