I bought one of these 1TB refurbs from the WD eBay store a couple of weeks ago and unfortunately received a bad drive. The computer would beep when I plugged it in so it recognized the USB connection, but the drive wouldn't pop up in Windows Explorer. "Disk Management" would never populate any drives with the refurb plugged in, and command line "diskpart" would never finish scanning drives, so I couldn't do anything with partitions or formatting. Unplugging the drive made both of those tools work. I tried a couple of different computers and USB cables but no joy. Sent it back, got a quick refund, haven't ordered a replacement.

Whats the difference between the various models (not the 1tb vs 2tb), elements, passport, and easystore?
