WD Caviar Green 1TB Problem

Hi All,

I have a WD Caviar Green 1TB and as far as im aware its in working order however I have it hooked up to a external usb caddy and have tried it on several computers. It doesn’t show up in either my computer nor Disk management however when its switched on its detected and the neccessary device drivers are installed. 
Any suggestions on how I can access/reformat this drive would be more than welcome :slight_smile:


Hello Belly, Welcome to the WD Community. I recommend you to connect the drive directly to a computer just to make sure that is not something with the USB enclosure. Also remember that internal drives are not supported on USB enclosures, this doesn’t mean that they will not work, but we cannot guarantee that they will work properly.
