Hi. I am facing the same issue. The drive spins normally, but I can't access the drives. In fact, I have two WD drives with the same issue, and so I actually want to find out if cleaning the drives internal parts will solve the issue. Cheers!

both counts. Cheers!

Hi. I am wanting to open up my Western Digital drive to access inside
of it. However, it is covered entirely by two plastic coverings sealed
tightly together with no screws to unscrew as a way to detach them. Is
there a way to open up the plastic covering to maybe clean the drive's
magnetic head and motor? Thanks and cheers!
