I have a Western Digital My Book WD4000C032 which used to work some weeks ago but suddenly Windows XP has stopped detecting it. I tried all options but its still not getting detected. The green light at the front button of the HD is constantly on unlike earlier where it used to glow and stop.
I tried removing the actual harddisk from the enclosure and connected using SATA to USB connector which i bought seperately. The USB got detected now and its showing up in device manager too but with 0GB.
If i try to look up the device in my computer the external drive is not listed along with the other drives.
Kindly help if anyone has faced this issue or have any idea on the resolution. Is it a firmware issue. I am pretty hopeful that the drive is working as it spins when connected and creates sound like it used to do earlier. Also i tried connecting it to different machines but no luck.
