Seriel # hard to make out, scratched up. But it’s WD…000AB… can’t see the rest. Anyway, it’s a few years old, 500 gb.
OK so my hard drive will not show up on the computer anymore. Not even under admin tools/disk management. It makes the “ding” sound like it’s hooked up, the light flashes and the drive turns. Just doesn’t show up. When I eject it from the computer, I get a prompt asking if I want to “Format the Disk”. Of course I don’t.
BUT when I plug the hard drive into my TV, all of the folders and files are there. SO I know it’s there, so why can’t I access it anymore on the computer? I have other WD Passports and they work, I tried swapping cables, same thing.
Totally lost here.
