Hi Pambakain,

I am sorry for any inconveniency caused by your WD drive. As you mentioned, it could be a falty cable or some kind of connectivity problem. I would recommend you to enter BIOS and check if the hard drive is recognized. If it is not, you should change cables and ports (if possible) and try again. Sadly, there is a chance that the hard drive has failed. If changing the cable does not solve it, disconnect the hard drive and put it another PC, as a secondary drive. Check if the drive is going to be recognized. If it is backup all important data. Download Data Lifeguard Diagnostic from the link below and do complete drive check.
