Walmart? You mean Pricesmart cuz you just say sando. Well carry it back. It must have warranty. What you hurting your head so for. Show them and let them exchange it. Once you haven't tampered with any security screws or something. If it was truly Walmart in USA or Canada they would exchange it without raising an eyebrow.

2nd one was 2 weeks old and stopped, that was a toshiba. i lent someone it, so blammed it on them.
Now the 3rd is a WD and its brand new.
Tried a differnt port, nada. tried 2 other pcs, nada.
Also tried the entering letter in address box.

And you alwys hear people saying they carry their hard drive by someone 2 get all their info off of when something crash or something. any ppl around sando area that you guys can suggest.
stretch wrote:Yes at walmart, doesnt make sense carrying it back for a new one as yet because im sure the same problem will happen again. 3 in a couple months. im pretty sure a 4th will be not recognised.
So when plugged in, you here the windows noise recognising that a device is plugged in.
The hard drive is on top of laptop, and the speaker for it is around same area, will that really be it?
Lights do come on, on hard drive when plugged in.
I have tried in another laptop and desktop, which it worked in yesterday.
It does appear in Device Manager as WD Drive Management Devices. That is the last thing in device manager.
Dont understand what u mean with one enclosure and i guess it has 2 be getting power as it he light is blinking.
