My 2TB WD Passport stopped working a while ago, and i took it to the pc guy and he says its screwed… he didnt have a look inside of the hard drive, just tried running recovery and he couldnt fid it at all. I thought i’d find some answers here anyway.
So when i go into disk management, it doesnt find the device in the list, but it does find it as ‘Disk 2’ underneath… yet no data or anything is found. or in this case ‘Not Initialized’
When i enter Disk Management, it asks me to initialize Disk 2 (WD Passport) but cannot do so, as there is an error…
it isnt accessible in My Computer either. sometimes doesnt show up, sometimes it shows up as a local disk, but completely inaccessible, and usually crashes my Windows Explorer.
Is there anything i can do to get it accessible, initialized or ANYTHING whatsoever.
I feel it may be a device problem rather than a software problem, but its worth a shot to find some answers.
