Hello,
My wd portable hard drive elements 1tb SE isn't being recognized by the computer. It doesnt display in the My Computer window and i have no access of it at all. In the device manager it displays under " Disk Drives" and says working normally but doesnt appear in Disk Management. The light stays on and doesnt blink. I have tried it on other PCs and with other cords but doesnt help. I am using Windows 7. Guys please help me out here!!

This sounds like either the hard drive has failed or the USB/HD interface hardware has failed. Is it possible for you to remove the drive from the case and install it in a desktop computer?

Good Luck
