I have a Western Digital 500 GB hard disk which I bought about a year ago. It has apparently stopped working since a while ago. The disk contains some very important data which I do not want to lose. I would be very grateful if you can help me recover the data from the disk and if possible make the disk usable again. Thanks.
Here is some information which might help you help me with this problem:
When I connect this disk to my Macbook Pro, nothing happens. But when I unplug it, it shows the following error message:
I have set up a Linux-Windows dual boot on my desktop machine. When I try to mount this disk in Dolphin, the file manager I am using in Linux, it shows the following error message:
Windows says nothing when I connect the disk, but when I remove it, it says that the drive will have to be formatted before use.
Before the disk started behaving this way, I had connected it to my TV to watch a video, but the TV could not recognize the disk.
