I have had a 1TB Western Digital Ultra external hard drive for nearly year. Out of nowhere it will not show in disk utility but it does show in system profiler. I have a Macbook pro mid 2012 running Yosemite 10.10.1 I have of course tried searching myself but found no clear answers. I tried verifying the main disk and found nothing wrong. Other external drives work fine with this port and cable. Could it be a hard ware failure? Thanks for the support guys I'm just trying to identify possible causes.
Details given by system profiler:
