I bought a 1 TB WD Passport Essintal a few months ago. I decided to go ahead and place all the pictures from my camera cards on this drive. I formatted my camera cards for furture use as I take a lot of pictures. After I finished putting all my pictures from 2008-2012 I removed the drive the correct way.
The next day I wanted to print a few pictures and the drive will not display anywhere. I read alot of post and since then have tried on 7 different PC/laptops. I have ordered a new USB cord from WD and tried a few store bought cords. I have spent hours on the phone with WD and uninstalled and reinstalled the programs.
The only thing WD will do for me is replace it. I asked them how can I replace the births of 4 grandchildren, the graduation and marrage if 1 of them. There remark was so sorry.
I contacted the recovery place that they recommended and they quoted me $950.00. I am not rich by any means so I can not go that route. Any sugestions would be appreciated!!!
I have had numberous panic attacks over this. I live in a different state than my children and grandchildren and to know I have lost all my memories is killing me…
Thanks in advance
