Hello,
I just bought a new drive WD40EFAX WD RED 4TB and after connecting it to the pc is unrecognizable and it makes a weird noise on boot, I also have this error pic. Another drive on these same sata cables works fine. Any suggestions?

Your HDD has failed I am sorry. It's the problem with the head.
You could try to replace the head but I don't recommend it unless you are a professional.
Send it to data recovery or just get a new one. This is one of the reasons why you must backup.
