  1. Does it work on other computers? I've had a similar issue before with a WD exteral hdd. I had to go into device manager and remove a driver. Worked fine after that.
  2. if it not a driver issue where the device not working on anything it could be the control board inside the drive went bad. most time if the device is out of warranty you can pop the drive out and connect it to your pc and copy the data over.
