Question about Acomdata (HD250UE5-72) (HD250UE572) 250 GB Hard Drive

External drive crashing (250gb HybridDrive)

I this External Hard Drive (250Gb) and all of a sudden it stopped working. I have my brothers and sister music collection as well as some movies, and two years worth of photos that i really want to recover from it. The weird thing about is that it was working the night before. When I turn it on, it tells me for my password, I enter it, and it tells me to install the NOMAD mobile desktop...which I have already done that as soon as I bought it. when it tries to search for all the files, in that drive, it stops, telling me that their is no more room in the drive and crashes....I go to My Computer, right-click on the drive so that I can delete some stuff, and explorer.exe crashes. that happens every time I try to access the drive.

So I was thinking that maybe the enclosure is messed up. So is it possible to disassemble the drive, pop it in to my desktop and access the info....Or is there some other thing that is messed up....

You may try some photo recovery software to rescue the files on your external drive, here are some for your options.

Photo Video Music Recovery (for Windows)
Photo Video Music Recovery for Mac

Be careful: Before your pictures are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the external drive in case the original files(your pictures, video or music) are overwritten.

Most problems like yours are usually due to the connection not the device. Check your cable, or if you have another one try that first. If that does not solve the problem get back to me.

250gb hard disk not working


Your HD has an obvious problem. If it has power going to it and it isn't working then the HD needs to be replaced. Don't worry in many cases you can have the data retrieved from your old hard drive by using this online company that I highly recommend:

I cannot retrieve my files from the wd 250gb


First instinct is that your drive has failed. I would remove the drive and insert it into a system to test. If it works, then it is the housing from the external drive that failed. If the drive does not work once inside your system, then the drive is bad. Good luck.
