write zeros - drive no longer works or accessable on computer
i bought a Western Digital elements 2A2 5 1 TB external hard drive - when I uploaded files (movies) onto it and plugged into my Samsung TV it kept saying no files - yet on the computer it would show files ( I ensured files were AVI ) as I have numerous other drives that all work no problems.
I contacted the company who sent me a program ( date lifeguard diagnostic for windows) to check the drive was working correctly which when i ran it , it said no problems it passed
it had a section called write zeros which i thought was the same as formatting the drive so i used it on the drive
However now the drive is inaccessible the light shows on the drive but it will not show on my computer at all I plug it is and the computer wont even reconize the drive is there
Please help Ive just paid £50 for an item I cant use any longer
Is this a good question?
