Hello,

I think my WD external hard is corrupted. It shows under safely remove hardware and doesn't show under my computer. Under disk management it shows but has no name. If I try right click and try to change disk letter that is greyed out. I have tried on another computer as well. Thanks for any advice

Yes, it appears that you hard disk has failed and needs to be replaced.
