Re: Western Digital Elements Drive not spinning
You're going to have to yank that drive out and plug it into your system normally instead of using the casing. Most likely the disk itself is busted to be honest, but that doesn't mean you can't recover data from it. I recently had to do the same with another WD Elements drive for a friend. I can't remember the software I used for it, but I think it was something that was paid.
Best case scenario, the enclosure is messed up, but it's a slim chance. Hate to be the bearer of bad news on that one.
Could always talk to WD and see if they could replace it...is there any physical damage to the casing?
