i have a WD 500gb mypassprt usb 3.0 drive.
A few days back, i found that the speed of copying files was very slow, around 1 MBps in all my usb ports, 2.0 and 3.0. The problem remained even when i connected the drive to other computers.
i have the latest, updated drivers and smartware. I even tried reinstalling all of them.
Then, I used the WD quickformatter to format the drive. It detected the drive and tried to format it, but it said “format failed”.
Now when I connect my drive to the pc, it detects it as a removable disk, but it does not show anything in My Computer.
How do I get my drive working?
