  1. Very Clear

  2. Seems like an excessive introduction. Almost 4 minutes to say … hey maybe
    your drive doesn’t have a letter assigned to it.

  3. Perhaps I’ve bigger problem: I can’t see my WD Passport neither on Disk
    I can feel on my hand the hard drive moving, the little light is on but
    there’s no sign of my WD Passport on Win 7 neither on iMac. Have you got
    any tips? Ciao

  4. If you need to backup anything on the drive connect it to a chromebook if
    possible. Might work on linux as well but I couldn’t tell you for sure. You
    could just run a VM with chromeOS and connect the drive to that.

  5. Thanks. That helped me a lot. Nice job.

  6. you talked 19 minutes about nothing and then you said in 33
    sec.(accumulated) what was really important..stop making videos for retards
    and make them shorter..thank you & i’m sorry if i offended you

  8. Worked like a charm. Thanks a million. I had an old Iomega Hard Drive
    that would not be recognized anymore and this video got it working again.
    It is a little lengthy, but I’d rather it be lengthy and thorough than
    quick and missing a step or rushed where an error could occur. Thumbs up
    for sure!

  13. my WD passport hard drive doesn’t show in disk management, I ran the WD
    data lifeguard diagnostics and the after the smart scan it showed a smart
    error fail, raw read error rate. I assume, if I can’t find my harddrive in
    the disk management then the HDD has most likely failed and there is
    nothing I can do to fix it.

  14. when i click OK on the initialize disk i get a I/O ERROR message come up
    which stops me from going into volume wizard why am i having this problem

  21. What is I/O error ??

  22. Thanks man for the video, but the problem I have is that mine was working
    just fine. In a week while I experienced a slow response from it. Now it
    does not show in My Computer but in Computer Management it says it is not
    initialized and it is unallocated!! .. I have so many things and files on
    it .. so do know any way I can open it without losing my files ?..

    driver for it .. i think since then I am having this problem.. if you have
    any idea about it please let me know .. Thanks
