WD Hard Disk Data Recovery Problems

WD My Passport
I bought a 1 TB WD My Passport on Amazon so I can have a backup storage for my Mac OSX 10.6.7. Upon getting it, the first thing I did was to partition and reformat the drive. Then, I backed up my data using Time Machine for about one month. While doing this, the hard drive un-mounts on my finder window without any warning. Then, I noticed that it still backed up on the un-mounted drive and after some time, stopped Time Machine. The hard drive is very compact. It is just as big as a wallet. I installed Smartware, which is an application that comes with it, to provide password protection. I reckon that this issue started after I installed Smartware so I decided to remove it. I have phoned Apple and Western Digital but they weren’t very responsive of my queries. I have a hard drive but cannot access the data.

Western Digital My Book Live 1TB Network Storage
I own a Western Digital My Book Live 1TB Network Storage and I decided to use it as WD NAS after successfully installing Windows 7 x64 on my computer. The disk worked fine at first but after a few months the computer lost contact with my WD 1TB Book Live when I was trying to copy big chunks of data. When this occurred I restarted my computer and restarted the My Book Live drive but did not work. Now there is a beeping noise coming for the drive.
