    Hello
    I have been using a wd passport usb drive for the past 6 months, no problem. I plugged it into my Dell desktop today and it seems to run, blue light comes on etc. However I cannot access the drive, even through my computer. It used to be my f:/, it is not listed anymore.

    I tried the Diskmgmt.msc but the drive does not come up in the listing

    Any help on this would be appreciated as I have 5 years of digital images stored on it

    Thanks

    Paul

    Is this the computer you've used it for before?

    Yes, this it is connected to the same computer. In the past when I connected it, no problem, it was recognised and I could find F:\ in my computer!

    Very frustrating
