I need help what is exactly the problem with this hdd.
any help wud be sincerely appreciated.
Are you able to test the drive with a different set of cables? If yes, please try that just to make sure that is not a connection issue.
Although short test sounds really brief it actually might test much more aspects of the disk (depending on manufacturer) such as (read performance, buffer RAM test, a read/write circuitry test, or head elements test).
Whereas the extended test usually focus on drive surface.
My suggestion, after testing per @ERmorel advice, is to contact WD support and RMA the drive.
