Drive showing no information

Post by Kungfauxn00b » Sun Apr 15, 2012 3:37 pm

Hi all,

One of my WD External HDDs has recently given up the ghost and decided to "tick" when booting.

I've removed it from it's shell and plugged it in to the computer via USB and Windows then recognised it as far as it would show as "Not Initialized" in Disk Management.

Using R-Studio doesn't seem to help either as it's not showing any information on the disc (#1 USB below)


Is there anything I can do apart from sending it to a professional?

Looks like a hardware problem. Yes, to a pro.
