    My Maxtor external hard drive worked fine yesterday. Today my computer keeps saying that I have to reformat because it cannot read the drive. What can I do to avoid losing everything on the drive? Is it even able to be fixed?

    There is no tool option when I right click the drive. It shows up on disk management, but only gives me a few tabs in properties.

    only half answered the problem
    if you cant access the drive you cant format it

    make sure the lead/s that attach to your hard drive are securely seated
    if your computer came with a motherboard disc the drivers could be on it

    click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
    right click to reinstall drivers or

    if you can see your usb but its not working
    ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
    hope this helps

    if you can see your usb but its not working
    ports(com&lpt)right click update driver

    sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable

    just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,
    check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems

    if this fails to fix the problem
    you might have to install a usb 2 or 3 card they are cheap and easy to install you can buy these on Ebay very cheap

Can you see the drive ? if yes

click start control panel administrative tools computer management disk management right click on your drive select properties click tools you should see click check now click start two boxes


automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors place then a tick in both boxes then select check now start

you might tick one box then return after its finished the first repair then return and tick the second box you should not do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage this drive

I found that you get best results by ticking one box then returning after it has finished then tick the other box

If you need more help with this post a reply

hope this helps you

My book hard drive won't read


1. First try to use another usb cable. If it still won't work.
2. Try plugging it into another computer. If it still won't work.
3. Try removing the hard drive from your BOOK HARD DRIVE, and plugging it directly to your computers desktop SATA socket using a SATA cable. If it works, backup all the data of your BOOK HARD DRIVE and then delete the partition and make a new partition and then format it.

Why won't my dell laptop cannot read the primary internal harddrive?


First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

Go download EASEUS Partition Master 5.8.1 Home Edition (free). I've found it very useful to check and often repair drives that won't mount.

I have a 500gb roco toshiba external drive. the light is on but it won't read. i tried to change it's cable but still it won't work. how can i fix it?


try and listen to the drive when plugged in, if you hear a faint skipping noise. i suspect it is a fault internally on the reader.
if you have a reciept usually the manufacturer will exchange this. as a repair is very tricky!

My PC recognizes my hard drive but it's making a ticking sound & it won't re-format. I'm running Win7 & have tried both reformat settings-NTFS and exFAT but there is not action at all....


I'm sorry to hear that your hard drive is having trouble. Based on your description of the "ticking sound" and the fact that the drive was dropped, the drive is probably physically damaged. Unfortunately, this means that your drive is failing in a way that isn't fixable; it will have to be replaced.
