So I did a search but could not find anyone else with this particular issue. I plug in the LACIE 500GB Rugged drive via the USB cable and the USB light on the WD Live flashes and the drive starts to spin, etc, but after about 10 flashes the flashing stops and the light is off… the drive continues to spin, but the WD does not read the drive. This is what I’ve tried so far:
‘Eject’ the drive from a PC
Reboot, reset button, reset settings, hard reboot, etc
Updated to latest firmware
Tested thumbdrive on WD Live…works fine!
I have not yet run CHKDSK yet, so I will try that tonight, etc.
Any other ideas?!?! So frustrating.
