The hard drive is about a year old, maybe less. The computer that it's running on is about 2 years old. It shouldn't be an age problem because I have ran that hard drive on the computer before, also the other computer I tried it in isn't even a year old yet, so I definitely don't think that could be the issue.
How old are the computers that you're trying to plug this hard drive into? Depending on the age
of your motherboard/bios, you may not be able to detect this hard drive until you load the SATA driver.
Out of curiosity how old is the hard drive?

Yeah, I guess that's what I'll have to do. I was hoping that it was something simple, but I figured that it wasn't. @s1lents0ul It's on a linux machine, but it does not show up in the linux equivalent . That's one of the first things that I tried.
Well if we can't detect the HD that rules out using any diagnostic tools. The only advice I can give
would be to try a different set of sata cables and see if that makes a difference.
If the problem persists you can do the following:
Assuming the drive was purchased through a major retailer (not an original oem drive from Dell or HP etc..)
there would be absolutely no problem RMA'ing the drive through western digital. All of their drives come with an
automatic 3 year warranty. Usually the turn around time is about 1-2 weeks.
Sorry if I couldn't help any further.
