Been a while since we heard from you. Have you solved your problem? An update on your Topic would be appreciated.

I will let you know what happens. I went for the cheapest shipping so probably 2-3 weeks. Hopefully this will work as I understand if this doesn’t work the drive is dead?

Ok I found an L shaped extention in the box I missed before and was able to connect. I attached it along with the power for it. Didn't work sadly. It installed and said the device is ready for use. Whe I clicked on computer I can only see my C:, D: (Recovery), F: (my new WD I was going to move everything to), and E: (CD drive).
I can see from my taskbar the safely remove hardware icon. It has the UBS connection for it on there but I'm guessing that is just for the adapter itself not the harddrive.

Can you feel if the drive is spinning up? Is there any access to the drive when you power it up?

I beleive that it is showing. Is it one of those WD? I have I new WD external hard drive I just bought to replace the damaged one, it is currently connected along with the broken one. Not sure what that USB Device is. The only other thing I have plugged in the USB ports is my mouse.
The disk that came with it is a mini disk and I can't use it.

I would disconnect the new disk, to make things clearer and see what you see.

If you have unplugged your new external HDD and if WDC WD3200BEVT is showing, you might well be right that the drive is damaged, or you
is showing, you might well be right that the drive is damaged, or you
a package not containing a 1TB drive.
