I’m unable to detect my WD Element HDD in “My Computer”.
It was working fine just last week but today when I connect it to my desktop, I can see the blue light keep blinking on the HDD but it doesn’t show up in “My Computer”.
Sometimes it takes a while to show up but when I double-click on it, it just freezes my whole computer until I unplugged it from my PC and my PC is working again.
I’ve not tried checking it in the disk management yet.
I’ve tried to switch to another USB cable but still the same issue.
I’ve also tried to connect the HDD to another computer yet the same issue happened.
The only thing I have not tried is changing the power adapter because I didn’t have any extra.
The power adapter should be fine since I can hear the sounds of the HDD operating (disk spinning) and the blue lights is blinking.
It blinks for a few times then the blue light stay for 1 second and then it blinks few times again and it keep repeating in this order.
Anyone have the same issue?
