I have a My passport essential usb2.0. I have backed up all my data successful. I have then had to do a complete re-fresh of my laptop as it was so slow. Refresh went ok. Plugged in the Passport and drivers were installed successfully, however it didn't auto start.
Tried looking in computer and it doesn't recognise MY passport. I have used disk management and it shows as disk 1, unknown, 298.06gb, unreadable. However if I right click, then properties and then general tab it says this device is working properly. So looks to me as if my laptop cannot recognise the external drive.
I am tearing my hair out as am worried I have lost all my files and photos. My computer is a dell vostro 1500, running windows Vista business
Any idea how I can get this fixed
a bit more info. I also have a little scandisk usb and when I put that in my laptop it recognises it with no problem and shows in computer as removable F drive. So looks like an issue with the WD Passport Essential, not the F Drive??
