Problem with Hitachi 1TB external 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 laketiko@gmail.com.

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.

you could try replacing the power supply. if it still does not work, you probably fried the processor or motherboard. (or both). just make sure the replacement power supply has the same type of connectors on the power leads to the motherboard, hard drive, etc.

My XP will not boot when my Hitachi 1TB External USB 2.0 drive is connected. It gets as far as showing the Pentium screen and stalls.


Its probably trying to boot from your external drive.

Go into your bios and reset your boot setting to HDD0 as your first boot device, Disk drive 0 second and floppy third, unless you want to boot from an external drive. That being the case select an appropriate order.

If the bios shows your external HDD as HDD0, then you have to work out which is the drive carrying the operating system and set that to your first boot device.

To get into the bios, watch the boot screen for a key to hit to enter setup, normally its the "DEL" key.
