I have a WD Passport external drive. I can unlock it, but then the light keeps blinking and apparently cannot read anything. It's not listed in Disk Management.

Tried on 2 computers with 2 USB 3 cables

Is it a lost cause?

Thanks.

It is 4 years old. Did nothing obvious to it.

It is now seen in Disk Management as RAW.

EaseUS is finding the files. Is there free data recovery software that would work well in this case? I tried Recuva but it failed.

Any idea what might be the issue?

Thanks.
 


that might not be possible. most WD passport drives have the USB connection integrated on the drive.
