Question about Hitachi 1TB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive
Hello,I bought a hitachi 1 tb external hard drive (110 volts) and accidentally plugged it into a 220 volt outlet.
When plugged into 110 volts again, it cant be detected through the USB port.
Is the any chance I can still recover the data stored in this drive? Is it just the adaptor that was damaged or is it the hard drive itself?
Kindly email me for answers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you very much!
Most likely you just burnt up the adaptor. You can order another one from Hitachi.
The data is probably still intact on the drive itself.
You can connect it to your computer with an adapter that plugs into the drive itself and the usb port on your computer. It then shows up as a drive letter as normal.
You can buy these sata to usb adapters at most computer stores for around $25. Tiger has a nice selection:
I would pick one with an external power supply. It also connects to your hd. The ends are keyed so you can't miss-plug them.
Or find a local computer tech (most have this cable in our toolkit) and he probably will copy your data in a few minutes for you.
