WD External Drive shows as unformatted

If the external HD was working fine but now the drive letter showed up in “my computer”,  and Windoze wants you to format it (Shows up in device manager as healthy/active).  Probably the Boot Sector or Partition information has been damaged.

Download TestDisk and repair the Boot Sector:
