Try to see if there's a way for you to open the enclosure..where the 2.5 inch hard drive is contained. and get an adapter for the interface so you can use the ide interface (instead of the usb interface) and plugged it into a desktop ide cable and possibly be able to access the hard drive..

one thing you need to keep in mind is that if you happent to be trying to open the enclusure (assuming that what you have is in fact a niceh little enclusure) you may end up opening the platter casing of the your hard drive which will damage the hard drive for good.. so make sure you get inside but not much to see the platter... again.. I'm assuming your device is in fact an enclusure for your 2.5 hard drive.

keep in mind that if you get the hard drive out and it still does not get detected after you plugged into a a regular desktop ide cable... you hard drive is the one that may have been damaged all along... and time and money may have been wasted...

good luck

My laptop cannot detect my hard drive. It no longer vibrates and the light doesn't blink anymore.


the drive could be potentially corrupt.
plug in your HDD and run recurrva and try to recover files if you cant do that remove the HDD from the caddy and plug into a PC and test if you can access your files if not reformat by right clicking on the drive in my computer (ntfs is recommended) you will loose all data but you may be able to recover your HDD

I purchased my wd hdd (500 GB) storage device from CANADA It was fell down from table while working ......... so now it is not working ....... though it showing that some removable device is connected...


Connect it to a different computer. If it still is not detected, then there is a hardware problem. Exercise the warranty to get it repaired/replaced.
Note that W.D. has a "Customer Loyalty" program; buy a new disk-drive from the W.D. web-site, at a good discount. Or, search online for a professional "data recovery service". They will repair your disk-drive just long-enough to copy your files to a brand-new disk-drive.

Samsung Pleomax SAM MD-205 driver?


It took me a lot of digging to try and find a driver download. You can try the UHD25-80GB driver (this is for Windows 98, but you can try to see if it fixes the problem): http://www.samsungpleomax.com/sup_03_01.asp?page=2&fcate=Driver+download&scate=Storage+Media&tcate=HDD&scateg=Storage%20Media&tcateg=HDD. Direct link to zip file: http://www.samsungpleomax.com/sup/cs/HDD-driver-2500-80GB%20DRIVER.zip

Also, specs indicate that you need USB 2.0 or 1.1. I had problems connecting via a 4-port hub (that was supposed to support USB 2.0) so ended up connecting directly via my computer USB ("Enhanced" = 2.0) slot, which seemed to work fine.

Philips Mobile Storage Device SPD5300CC/96K Incompatible XP?


After consultation with the shop which sold the drive, they helped me work out the problem. Which was that the drive I was attempting to use in the Philips enclosure, had an OS on it, which was conflicting with the OS on my current HDD. So, that particular drive will need to be connected another way to access the information.
