The hard drive is bad. The first thing u need to do is back up your data but since u can't boot from hard drive get Linux Slacko Puppy (live cd about 150MB) burn it to a disc and load it to a optical drive and boot from it. If the internal drive managed to be recognized attach external HDD to a USB port and start to back up files (simple copy & paste). Don't use the HDD until all the files are safe and u gonna need that HDD replaced.

Many thanks for your advise. This is the second WD drive that dies on me, after 6 months. The first one lasted about 4-5 years.
I'm on my way to Micro Center.
Thanks: Paul
