I believe this has something to do with the windows updates around February 9th. My Western Digital 1TB drive suddenly stopped being recognized after the updates I installed on that day. Had the same issue, works fine on an XP machine. So basically, all I am in the process of doing, using the XP machine to transfer the files from the WD drive to a different one, and when I am done, I am going to try to reformat the WD and see if it gets recognized now. I suspect MS did something odd to the drivers with one of those Feb 9 updates. If you don't have a way to transfer the data, try uninstalling the Feb 9th updates, and see if that helps.
