My WD Elements Desktop External is no longer recognised on my main computer.
It has worked fine in the past, but now all of a sudden is not detected. It does not prompt when plugged in, nor does it show up in the disc management interface or the device manager. It appears to be aware that it is plugged in however as the light on the external blinks rapidly for a short while after being plugged in.
The strangest thing however is that it works fine on other computers, including my family computers and my laptop.
I have attempted to troubleshoot the issue by trying various USB devices in multiple ports on each system to see if there is any correlation with the issue, but have come up with nothing that gives me an idea of what is going on.
I have also attempted to format the external using my laptop, but that has not helped either.
If anyone has had a similar issue, or knows of any potential solutions, please post your advice.
Thanks for your time.
