Wdc wd5000

All of a sudden the drive is not recognizable and is looking to format the drive.  In the diagnostics, the WD drive nolonger contains a format.  I was burning old CDs to this drive when this occurred.  Thank you in advance.

You will need to format the drive in order to make it work again, this normally happens due to a corrupt file.

I’m just making sure you know that you can access the drive through disk management, and do a partition and format from there.
