I have searched forum after forum only to see the same responses.
First of all i have a 2tb Western Digital Elements external hard drive. With all my family pictures and video footage that i really DO NOT want to lose - I know my bad in not backing them up! School boy error i know.
HDD does not show up in My Computer
HDD Shows up in DM as "Disk 1" - "Unknown" - "Not initialised", i can not right click and make "Online" and whenever i try to initialise it comes up with the error "Virtual Disk Error - Incorrect Function"
It also doesnt allow me to change the filepath, as in the letter before the drive.
Basically i have had this HDD for about a year now and it was working fine, then one day NOTHING. I have tried on differnt computers, different USB cables and different power cables, and power locations (ie not using surge protector).
As you can imagine i am a complete biff with computers, but if you tell me to do something (and i can follow in a logical order) then i will do it - I just want my pictures retrieved.
Gentlemen, your help in this matter is very much appreciated.
