[Sloved] WD PAssport Blinking but not recognised


Hi, I saw lots of people asking and have a solution but didn’t see a way to reply so posted instead.

The problem is that when you connect a 2TB external WD passport HDD to a Mac or Windows computer, it flashes constantly and never gets recognized. I’ve found a partial solution:

Leave the drive switched on overnight and the flashing will sometimes stop and the drive will be recognized. Next time it’s plugged in, it wont need to do this.


Thanks for sharing.
