Did you remove your disk from its enclosure?
WD disks often hardware encryptetd, so that not even the user did notice it.
To have a successful diagnose, you should leave it into its case.
Some infos;

A symptom could be not initialized like your disk is!
Sry for that question but I'd like to exclude anything wrong!

Thanks for respond my Q's Fiona :D

No, i haven't open the enclosure yet.
so, whether it applies only to the external hard drive wd ato any type of hard drive?
now for the future, whether to be reformatted before use, or let it just like that? (This makes me curious as well)

file_pread (5,11, buffer, 158 (0/2/33)) ReadFile The media is write protected.
file_pread (5.2, buffer, 2080 (0/33/2)) ReadFile The media is write protected.
file_pread (5.2, buffer, 51 (0/0/52)) ReadFile The media is write protected.
file_pread (5.2, buffer, 98 (0/1/36)) ReadFile The media is write protected.
file_pread (5.2, buffer, 119 (0/1/57)) ReadFile The media is write protected.

This is part of the log that I got, and btw the log that I get about 1.6 GB n this not 1.6 GB log, i repeat again in few second to get this ... OMG! owh btw my hard drive is NTFS format

tonight I might try to open enclosurenya to be tested to the computer directly
