Hi :) 

Hard drive has probably crashed...run a hard drive test....then recovery software if needed...

All the best Brett :)

Yeah, you can download some diagnostic utilities from WD's website to test it too.

The best bet on those external drives is to build your own and get a quality hard drive and enclosure
