WD My Passport Ultra not being recognized on my Mac

WD My Passport Ultra was disconnected without being ejected and now it’s not showing up in my device list. When i try to locate it using WD Security is states the following:

About your drive
Seriel Number: [Deleted-Privacy]
Firmware Revision: 1.012
No Volumes Found

I believe but not absolutely sure that this was formatted as Fat32 and i have attempted to read the drive on both Mac and PC but unable to.

Please help if you can as i have very important information on this drive

Many thanks

It is possible the partition is corrupted and since you mentioned that it was disconnected improperly that would be my diagnosis. You may try to recover the data using a data recovery software and then format the drive in order to use it again.

Hi there, have tried a few days recovery programs but will try a a disk reader when I get one. Thanks

Did you get it fixed? I am having the same problem, I need the data off the drive. What programs did you use if you did get it fixed?

I did not get the issue fixed. Gutted
