Help - Western Digital My book external hdd

    Will not show up in My Computer, however both my desktop and laptop register it is there with a noise.

    Have googled it and:

    1. it is plugged into the mains directly
    2. ive tried tweak ui but all drives were selected already
    3. tried going into disk management but the option to assign a letter doesnt come up

    anyone got any ideas?
