1tb WD ELEMENT HARD DRIVE Error:0x8007045D/ I/O Device Error.

Hi guys, I got 1tb WD Element hard Drive. It was working fine till last week. When I was trying to copy a movies. While I was copying a movies it takes too long to copy a 700mb so I decided to cancel it. Then the pc goes not responding and also the hard drive. I unplugged the Hard drive and put it back again. Then its still the same problem I encounter, It takes too long to copy a 300mb movies. So I decided to cancel and unplugged it again. Then when I plugged again my hard drive, the hard drive is not showing up it my computer. But it showing in Device manager. so I decided to reformat it. Via FAT32FORMAT. the format is not successful because error occurs like (Format is not Successfully Completed. So I decided again to format it via DISK MANAGEMENT. then after the format it becomes RAW file instead of NTFS and I cant Access the Hard drive it says NEED TO FORMAT TO ACCESS. So I Decided to format again VIA FAT32FORMAT. Again the format is not successfully complete. but now I can access the hard drive. when I was trying to put some files/movies/music, it takes too long and ERROR occurs. I hope you guys can help me. See the attached pictures so you guys can see what Im saying.

  1. Sounds like the drive is bad. You can try another cable maybe but sounds like the drive is the issue.
  2. I have yet any cable's here on me. & i think the drive too is the problem. Is there any solution for my hard drive ?

    Nothing you can do yourself to fix a failed hard drive, contact WD if it's in warranty.
