My son has dropped his Western Digital external hard drive and now his PC can't see it.
I have it now and, when plugged in, the light flashes to say it's on.
When first plugged in my PC automatically downloaded the relevant software, meaning that my machine recognised it.
When I go to 'My Computer' it doesn't show up and yet, when I click on 'Safely Remove Hardware' it shows up, again I'm thinking my machine knows it's there.
I've also noticed a clicking sound coming from the HDD.
Is it toast or is there a way of accessing it?
Oh, can it be opened up so I could look inside ....................... there don't appear to be any screws.
