Hello,

My Western Digital is not getting detected which was working 1 week before. Suddenly this was not detected and following is happening after connecting in my laptop (Win 7 64 bit OS)
a) Light appearing on the drive.
b) Hearing sound from the drive.

But not detected. Please help me on this.

Thanks,
Srini

Hello,

Try this 1

Plug your external drive.

Click on Start --> In search box, type devmgmt.msc and press Enter.

"Device Manager" will be opened. Is there any yellow mark?

Double-click on "Disk drives" and let me know if you can see your external hard

drive under it.

Good Luck
