SERT’s WD hard drive data recovery service recovers data from these devices on a daily basis offering flat rates, free shipping, and a no data no pay policy.


Western Digital is a leader in hard drive manufacturing, but some of their external hard drives are notorious when it comes to needing data recovery for a few reasons.


One specific hurdle lies within the Passport line where the PCB for the external hard drive  was designed with a USB 3.0 connection, instead of the traditional SATA port. It requires advanced recovery tools to gain access to this particular drive, even to just get an image of it.

SERT has the tools to overcome every obstacle and get your data back quickly and safely.

The Best Western Digital Recovery Services Around

Most Western Digital data recovery problems are due to improper cooling. Quite a few of these failures can as well be due to read-write head malfunctions or corruption of the service track.

When there are micro-code issues, the WD drive will usually make a clicking sound. You might also see a wrong drive set displayed at POST. For example, you might see “Caviar SE WD – 400J.B 40GB I.D.E Ultra ATA 100” instead of “Caviar SE WD – 1600J.B 160GB I.D.E Ultra ATA 100.”

wd-passport-hard-diskThis is a straightforward sign that the microcode or heads have failed, but are still in a recoverable state in most circumstances. If the drive is still clicking, you are advised to switch it off. Continuing to run the drive will cause more damage to the platter.

Don’t Try To Do Western Digital Recovery Yourself

Keep in mind that Western Digital drives are delicate devices. Like any other crucial device, if they’re not handled properly, you will experience irrecoverable failure.

Note that WD hard drives are sensitive to heat and temperature changes, power surges, static electricity and physical shock. You’re therefore advised to seek an expert opinion on how to handle your failing Western Media drive.
