my WD elements drive is not visible in device manager/disk management... but it light remains on (not blinking).

Drive is not showing in My Computer nor in disk management. any suggestions? One of my colleague said that i should change the reader (i think the circuit board or something..i have no idea) to make it work... please help

I had the same problem, and then realized I was using the wrong kind of USB cable. The cable that connects to the WD Elements drive needs to be a "micro B" cable; look on Google images to see what it looks like, kind of a weird 2-pronged thing. I was using just a normal USB micro cable (the familiar type that you probably have 10 of lying around in your house), which would enable the drive to light up and audibly spin, but not be recognized by the computer.
