do you want to send it to data rescue? I know some very inexpensive data recovery company, probably just less than 150 bucks.

Note: I must fill all of my USB Ports to Hard Drive be recognized like this.
I mean when other USB Ports are empty HDD acts as same mode.

I am still skeptical. In my opinion the HDD inside the enclosure is dead beyond recovery - most possible reason too many bad sectors.

In the Windows Disk Management screenshot you posted, your WD Elements HDD has no drive letter. Shows no file system. Without the drive letter, on which drive are you running the checkdisk ckdsk I: /f /r? Which is drive I:???? Also in the list of WDM it shows Capacity 931.48 GB and Free space 931.48GB. What does it signify? It signifies that the actual HDD inside the enclosure is not being read at all.

However I am just curious. Just fill up all the USB ports including the WD 1TB external as you said and post a full,untruncated screenshot of Windows Disk Management showing all the drives plugged into the USB ports.Let me see all the drives connected in the USB ports in the Windows Disk Management.

Follow the guidelines in this tutorial to post the full, untruncated screenshot of Windows Disk Management Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image In particular you should hide the Console Tree and Action Pane and also adjust the seperators so that no information is lost.

A sample screenshot:

I went to"Change Drive Letter and Paths / Add /" and saw it's "I".

Here you are, a good screenshot.

There is no indication that the drive letter has been taken by it. If taken it should appear as ( I: ) in WDM like it appears as ( G: ) ( H: ) on other drives. ( When you click on "OK" that drive letter should appear on the drive within a second. Looks like it did not happen.)

Please wait for CKWD, the WD man here on the Quick Test error message. ( I have already sent a PM to him)

Show desktop shortcut
Hiya! I'm on Seven right now. I'm pleased with what I see. There is ONE problem though. On Vista and earlier, there was a quick launch bar that had a "Show desktop" button. The button minimizes everything to show the desktop. Now, is there a way to have it on Windows 7's task bar? Thanks...
