My WD Elements 1TB External HD suddenly stopped working. It still appears in Device Manager, and I can still safely remove it. But any attempt on opening, clicking, or reading the drive results in "Not responding". I tried reinstalling the driver. I tried reading it through Disk Management, Diskpart, etc., but they all stopped responding. This doesn't happen only in my Laptop, it happens on all PC/laptops I tried.
