This generally means you have a hardware failure in the drive or enclosure. The simplest way to test which is to have a hardware tech move the drive into a new enclosure and see if it works.
This will void your warranty if you do it, so, if the drive is under warranty and there are no files you consider valuable on the drive, call the manufacturer for warranty support.
If you value the data more than the drive is worth then take it to your local hardware vendor and ask them to test the hard drive in a new enclosure. Good odds it will work this way but if not you may need the help of a data recovery specialist.
In North America I use Armor-IT, if you are in a different region and the new enclosure fails to garner results, comment back with your region(Country, State, City) and I will supply you with the closest reputable facility.

my Buffalo external hard disc can be detected by laptop, but my access is denied. When i click on the hard disc icon, it popped out a message box prompting me to reformat my hard disc. Is there any other way to retrieve my files before reformat or
is there any other way to recover my files after reformat?
Is there any other way to troubleshoot my hard disc other than reformatting it?
Please help me, I am desperate to recover all my files because they are too important/precious to lose it.

I think I have the answer, plug your cable in. If windows 7 shows the message unknown device don't remove the usb. instead turn the switch on the back of the external hard drive off for a few seconds then back on. Windows 7 should then for some unknown reason find the correct drivers and your buffalo hard drive will now work. This worked on mine.

It is possible that the hard drive was not initialized and you might need to do it manually.
Try and do this:
Depending on your operating system,
Right-Click on 'My Computer Icon', then select 'Manage'. When you get to Computer Management
page, Click on Disk Management on left hand side, This will display ALL the disks installed on your
system, either partitioned or not partitioned, formatted or not formatted.
Then go to the ones that are hidden, not created, or not displayed, right-click on it, then you'll see
different actions that you can perform.
Also, in some instances, what you just need to do when you get to this page is to assign a new,
distinct, drive letter apart from the ones already in use on the system.
To do this, just select "change drive letters and paths" on the disk management page and give your
new drive a new letter apart from my of the ones being used on the system.
This will automatically bring out the hidden drives.
Hope I have helped you out.
Goodluck and thank you for using Fixya.
