External WD Elements not initializing

admin 20 Feb , 2021 0 Comments data recovery

Title. The hard drive isn' t detected in file manager, but is in disk manager and device manager. When I open disk manager, this automatically brings up the initializing menus for the drive, but when choosing possibly MBR or GPT, I obtain a message that says " the request failed due to a fatal equipment error. "

I' ve attempted updating drivers, different cords, different computers, no dice. nothing shows up for the device in cmd when I list the disks in diskpart, and therefore I don' t believe I can do a chkdsk either, due to the fact there' s no drive letter. Properties of the disk list absolutely nothing, and there isn' t a black unallocated space bar on the hard drive in disk manager. Absolutely nothing shows up in EaseUS, either. I have no idea what to do, please help.
