[Resolved]  Western Digital — WD My Passport External HD Failure

Address:Imphal East, Manipur

I have a WD My Passport 0740 500GB external HD that stopped working just 2-3 months after I started using it. And it filled to the brim, too. I tried taking it to the local IT store to recover the data, but no luck. ( PS, they opened the casing, so warranty is void).The light on the HD turns on. The Hard Drive is recognized. But it does not show up on Windows Explorer (windows 7 Ultimate). I've read a number of forum posts regarding the issue and checked that: a) the HD does not show up in that BIOS. b) when I open disk management, the HD does show up as disk1, but with no bar. At this point i've given up on recovering the data. But if the HD proves salvagable in any way, I'd be gratefull.
