I need help. I have a MacBook Pro and thought I had my Western Digital My Passport

Ok, the words "Western Digital My Passport" should strike fear into any user.

These are cheap drives and they will fail.

I've read that these are the internal drives that are rejected in the quality check process, so they put them in a case and sell them cheap to get rid of them. In fact most external drives are in the same bracket of awfulness, but WD have excelled at it.

I have two dead ones here, and friend has two dead ones (all WD My Passports). These products have an incredibly bad reputation. The WD internal drives that are sourced as internals are wonderful, which is just strange, I'll happily buy WD Reds all day long.

And the internal drives are nearly impossible to resurrect when they die.

Have a read up on the internet about them.
