I have a Caviar Black 1TB WD1002FAEX that all the sudden just stopped being detected in windows and BIOS. I have tried everything and nothing works. Tried new cable and different port, tried running it on SATAII …nothing. Even tried it in a different computer and nothing. It was just a storage drive, running a SSD as boot drive.
I can get it to show in Disk Management but shows as a ATA device and says its not Intiliazed. You cant get it to do anything.
Im at my wits end, this drive has 15 years of pics of my work on it plus all my music and movies!
Can anyone help? Please! I need to atleast get my data off this drive!
