You can go into the disk management and check out the drive to see if it is still working and what it says in there about it. You can also go into device manager and under storage devices see what it says there.

If you right click on computer and select properties then in the window that comes up on the left side you can see device managr and then you can click on it.
If you also again right click on computer and select manage then you can select disk management and the window that comes up will contain all the drives that are connected to your computer and you can see what it says about the WD drive.
