Its been a couple of days and I have experimented with it alot but could not understand why my PC does not recognise my Western Digital 1TB External Hard drive? I have reinstalled disk management but still the Hard Drive does not show up. Is my drive damaged?
My WD 1TB External Hard Drive is not Recognised by mp PC
Does your External Hard drive have 2 usb cables? Some external hard drives, usually high-capacity ones, have an extra USB cable, which is used to give additional power for the storage device. This power is much needed because it targets to have a fast and accurate access even if the storage capacity is very big. If using the 2 USB cables still does not make your hard drive to be detected, maybe the actual USB ports in your computer system are not working. Try to connect smaller-sized flash drives in your USB ports and see if they are detected normally. Let me know either way if the 2 methods above either worked or did not work.
