After my HP laptop updated to the latest Windows 10 just before Christmas my WD2500 Passport is no longer recognised. It is recognised by my TV and also on my daughters laptop.
The light comes on and I can hear the disk whirling but the light just flashes rapidly.
Originally it always showed before the update in file explorer as F:/WD Passport now It shows as G:/ in file explorer but when you click on it it just hangs.
I have updated the driver in device manager as it shows as WD Passport External under Disk Drives.
I have uninstalled the driver and reinstalled it.
I have also uninstalled the device, switched off the laptop. switched back on and plugged it back in but that didn’t work either.
any help would be very much appreciated. Is it a bug in the windows update?
Happy New Year all and thanks
