Default WD MyPassport 500gb Dead?


I have a WD MyPassport 500gb not working. It's new used only for a couple of times. When connected to computer(win7) you may see it under Devices and Printers (Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Devices and Printers ) and Device Manager but not in My Computer. Also at Disk Management section it is recognized but capacity is detected as 2TB and seems like not initialized disk.

I tried different computers also running ubuntu 10.10

I was transfering files between computers and it stopped working after moving some files.

Could this be because of a virus?
