If it is a matter of just the power supply failing, you can get a replacement. It is possible to remove the HD and place it in a new case with a new power supply, as well. However, if you suddenly smell something burning after that, you are on the trail to adventure. That might be a burnt out diode, easy enough for a PC repair shop to replace. Or, it might be something more serious and you would need an expensive data recover shop to get back your loss. You could call Western Digital customer service and see what they have to offer in terms of a power supply or make use of the following link:

Don't be panic. you can try some data recovery software. You can see
It tells the steps how to perform data recovery.

If above does not work, you may have to format the external hard drive (use quick format), and then use above mentioned software to scan again the external hard drive and recover your files.

Try going to Disk Management and see if they show up there.

  1. Click Start
  2. Right Click My Computer
  3. Click Manage
  4. Click Disk Management
If your computer is recognizing a mass storage device they should show up in disk management and you can just assign them a drive letter.

Not recommended to open the case of an external hard drive. If you damage some small connector you might loose the right to replace it.

If it's the power adapter then a simple search of the internet should show you where to go to find one. The other problem is that the HDD may be bad. You'd have to open the case, remove the HDD then connect it to your computer. I'm sure this would void the warrenty. However if it is the HDD then you saved yourselp the cost of a power supply.

The pcb controller needs the info transferred from the original pcb otherwise the drive will remain inaccessible or destroy the data on the drive. Take it to a professional.
