So one night I finished editing a video and I was so excited that I got up and realised the hard disk was still connected to my Macbook Air. When I stood up, the hard disk was hanging on the Macbook Air for one second. When I realised the hard disk was hanging, I quickly sat down and moved the hard disk to an appropriate position. The hard disk was working for 10 mins and then I accidentally put my hand and applied a bit of pressure on top of the hard disk and heard a crackling noise. Since then,it just stopped working. So I force quit all my programs and when I tried to connect to my hard disk to my Macbook Air, an error pop up saying "hard disk not readable.". I tried to connect the hard disk with a different USB cable but the problem was still not solved. I believe I may have corrupted my hard disk and I hope I'm able to repair it and get my files back. I read online that many people are also experiencing this issue with WD's hard disk. I also tried to use 3rd party recovery softwares but it won't solve the problem just yet because I can't even connect my hard disk to my MacBook. I also tried connecting my hard disk to my Windows laptop, no luck. I also rebooted my MacBook air, no luck. My hard disk is a WD 1311B.
I hope someone can help me.
I tried to reformat my hard disk but wasn't able to do so.
