I recently have been having issues with this WD Passport Essential SE 1TB Usb 3.0/2.0. It seems to be not funtioning properly on Windows only whereas on other OS such as Ubuntu it works perfectly. The issue is that the device is detected in windows and even shown in Device Manager with WD SES Drivers installed - working properly , but does not show up in My Computer and is inaccessible . The disk in the harddrive is spining though … but the data access led is on and not blinking .
Please help me
