This is a SERIOUSLY delicate piece of equipment. The most likely cause is that the hard disk itself, inside the drive mechanism, has become displaced. Only a fully competent technician should try to re-position the disk. Was power on at the time? Meanwhile, pray that the heads were locked and that the media (disk) did not get scratched/damaged. Good luck.

How to access my Buffalo HD-PNTU3 external hard drive?


dropping it while turned on is fatal as it usually damages the write heads and/or the platters.
if it hit the floor, changes are it's physically damaged the mechanism.
recovering data from a drive with this damage is not cheap as you will have to send it away to be rebuilt. It's impossible to rebuild it yourself.

Dear Shaji,

I think u used File recover software for recovering the file. Same thing happened to me also. My brother got one HDD from his friend. I will explain u, how to recover or to detect HDD.

I have a suggestion.

I think u r believing in god. So first pray and put the HDD in USB port. After that also, if u are getting same issue means, you can give this HDD to some other great intelligent beautiful people... Like your MACHU (cousin)

Check the usb port function in the computer bios settings and be sure that it is set to yes. Connect properly your external drive. If it has two wire usb connections, use both to obtain the maximum power that will be need by your drive.
