I had similar problem. See FAQs on this site. My 300 GB One Touch II drive was not found in the XP machine either as USB or IEEE. When I remounted the drive in an external cabinet from Deltaco ( MAP-KC) is is running since. The Maxtor chassi was the trouble not the 3,5 " drive. All data is recovered. // Regards AH2FOTO

Can I retrieve data from a non-working hard drive?


There are people who can retrieve data from dead hard drives but it can be costly so get quotes first-- look in the phone book
other than that the data is long gone

I CAN NOT RETRIEVE DATA MY COMPUTER WILL NOT


try other usb port, or other computer and see whether the hdd is detected. If still not, try to go to device manager ( http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000833.htm ), and then assign a drive letter to the hdd. After that, try to access it from Computer, if not able to access it, format it (use quick format) and then use this hard drive data recovery program to recover your files.

I VE GOT A TRANSCEND 500GB EXTERNAL HARD DISK ITS NEITHER DETECTING NOR DATA IS BEING RETRIEVABLE.I VE GOT MANY CONFIDENTIONAL DATA IN THAT WHICH NEEDS TO B RETRIEVED AT ANY COST.I M READY TO PAY A GOOD...


First, try and connecting the transcend 120Gb USB drive to another computer, if this computer can detect it as an external storage device and you can open the folders and files, then back up your data.
If this fails then there are companies that specializes in retrieving data from fault hard drives BUT be aware they charge a lot of money for their services. I suggest you do a Google search for these companies in your area.
There is a lesson here - NEVER have only one copy of your important data, important data should be backed up daily and at least on two sources.
You should consider fault redundant data storage. for details on such systems, please click on this link for more details :-

We understand that your problem is:
hello i was using my buffalo ministation 320 gb external hard drive about a week ago, it was working fine but I left it on my bed when I was done. About 2 days later I went to change my bed sheets and the external hard drive feel on the floor. Now when I connect it to my computer it makes a connected sound but it does not show up on my computer but it is recognized when I safely disconnect it from my computer. I tried it on my laptop, it installs but its the same, it is not detected under my computer so therefore I am not able to access my files. Please tell me what I can do to retrieve my data.

Maxtor Basics external portable hard drive not getting detected


I have a Western digital model wd2500b007-rnn
and I cannot get either my PC or my laptop to recognize the drive. I isolated the drive to another computer with the same error. It says USB device not reognized. I also tried a different port. I have not tried different cables. Can I retrieve the old data on the drive?

Did you find a resolution for this? I am having the same problem. None of my PCs can recognize the drive. Formatting seems to be the only choice but I need to recover my old data first.
