Purchased in May and crapped out in June.
Plugged into the laptop and worked fine from receiving day. One day I plugged back in to transfer some photos and I received the Delayed Write Error. Safely ejected it from the laptop, waited a minute and plugged back in. Now It shows in my computer as a drive (F:) but in the property box under file type, it states it is RAW. I downloaded WD Data Lifeguard Diagnostic and ran it. It registered my laptop’s hard drive but it registered the F:\ drive (external), but had no File System and space data available.
I tried this external on another laptop with the original cable and two different cables. Every time the other laptops can see the drive, but get the same informtion under the File System.
I then tried to reformat the drive and lose all the videos of my boy’s killer baseball season. I will not allow me to reformat. I am currently at wits end to figure out this problem. any ideas?
