My passport fails initializing

My passport 1TB ran for more than a year under windows 7,8 and actually 8.1, but suddenly stopped. it loads the drivers but doesn't appear in the explorer. when I start the disk management it indicates that the second disk (my passport) must initialize. but it fails.

it appears in the device windows , just doesn't start (or initialize). I even tried the refrigerator trick, nothing

I've also tried several data recover progs, recuva , testdisk, easyus, wondershare WAC, etc, they all fail to see the external drive.

there must be a program that can go through , any ideas?

thanks, Jim

I was able to see the data inside the HDD with a linux version included in the Hiren's 15.2 CD also i could copy some files I needed but with 0 KB no luck yet, still working on it.

This may still be true. Try wiping the drive on a Mac and use the "write zeros" option. Used to be that if the boot blocks on an IBM went bad it was unusable with Windows but can be fixed on a Mac.

there was some data that I would have liked to recover there. but if there's no other way. will try it as a last option. tnxz

@mayer I fear that won't work on a Passport. These are custom amalgamations of a SATA and USB port. The enclosure itself is the drive. You can't even take it out and put it in another enclosure.

The only 2 possible suggestions that may work are:

a) Solder on a new USB port.

b) Find a logic board for the matching drive. Hopefully you can find one with a SATA connection.

If you can get a working SATA port, then recovering may be possible.

Try WD SmatWare Installer. if you can get to where it asks for Password type in 5 wrong answers it will then ask if you want to reformat say yes and you will lose all data on the drive but have the drive initialized and back working.
