Why is my drive not showing up on my desktop?

I have a WD Ultra Passport.

It's not showing up on my desktop.

2015 MacPro

Sierra OS 10.12.16

• I've tried different USB ports

• I've tried a different laptop

• I've tried another USB cable.

• The LED light blinks or is solid.

• I hear it whirling inside.

• It shows up on my disk utility. However the device itself is grayed out.

• It also show up in my system report/hardware/USB

Any suggestions would be most welcomed.

The first thing I would do is run a live gparted disk on the system and examine the partition information to see if something has been altered. I don't have a drive like yours so you will have to research how the drive was originally partitioned to be able to tell if something has changed. I think most such drives come with NTFS partitions these days but you really should check for your WD drive and not make such an assumption.

Then I found this:

Note to self... never buy WD jump drives as they contain proprietary nonsense that inhibits full use of the hardware apparently. If you don't want to face a lot of googling and potentially fatal mistakes you may want to find a data recovery specialist to look at your drive if it won't work on your Mac or on a current Windows system.
