Hi jaggy48,
I hope you are doing well. Based on your post there might be a few reasons why it's not detected in your PC.
1) Check all the connections properly, sometimes loose connections can cause this.
2) Try to replace the cable sometimes the cables can be failing or not supportive.

I have found an article from the WD website which looks useful and similar to your issue. You may visit the link below for more detailed description.

I hope it will help you.
Thanks LINCON_WD for help. I changed the SATA cable and now hdd is accessible. Thanx again

HDD issue

Hello, Hi, I have a 500GB external hard drive that unfortunately has no File system. The drive registers under Device Manager, but not My Computer。 Does anyone know how to load FAT32 onto this disk?
