I have a WD 2TB HDD that seems to have stopped working. When I plug it in I hear the connected noise and the drive letter shows up in my computer.
This is about as far as I can go with it, the light on the HDD is constantly flashing, when I click on the drive letter or right click on it, it just hangs there. In disk management I can not see the drive, all I get is connecting to virtual disk service…
I have left the HDD for a few hours hoping that it was reading but still nothing. I have also downloaded WD diagnostic tool but the HDD doesn’t even show up as being connected.
I am using Window 7 on a laptop and windows 10 on a desktop. Both with the same issue
Any thoughts on how I can fix this?
