I've read a couple of threads from the board but nothing seems to work for my situation, hope u guys can help me out.
I'm running windows 7 ultimate on my PC
My external hard drive is a WD Passport Ultra
I was trying to copy some files from my friends laptop, it was working fine then. The second time I inserted the HDD (because i needed to retrieve some files) it cannot be detected. I was thinking maybe it was the laptop that was the problem. But when I inserted my drive to my PC still it cannot be detected.
It can't be detected in windows explorer but it seems that it can be detected in "device and printers" from the control panel and also can be detected in "disc manager".. I was thinking it was a virus or malware or i might be wrong.
-run ESET NOD32 on my PC no virus detected, can't run custom scan on external HDD since it cant be detected.
-run malwarebytes,, had 24 detected, fixed it, restarted my pc, tried running the HDD still cant detect,
-run panda USB vaccine . vaccined my PC but since it cant detect USB i was not able to vaccine the HDD
-i wanted to run a BIOS i read it from the forum, but not sure on running it. i don't want my files to be erased, as much as possible.
