Does you drive make any sounds like these? If yes you have a mechanical problem and you should get a specialist to work on it.
If not - try to remove the drive from the enclosure and connect it directly to the computer to recover your files.

I have Memorex Ultra Traveldrive - 160GB USB Hard Drive. I dropped it by accident and now I can't get information stored in it. Please help!!


1 what happens when you plug it in ?

2 can you see it in disk management ?

3 does it make any noises when plugged in ?

Gently tap the hard drive with an opened hand and see if you can get it to spin up one last time.

click start control panel administrative tools computer management disk management if you can see your drive 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

My drive fall form table i was tryed it is not working and not able to read my data that drive needle getting tick tick sound coming what can do?


The continuous "tick tick" normally means low power on the device.
Means: Case board broken or hdd logic board fault.

Possible solutions:
- Try to change usb port and usb cable.
- If you have an usb power adapter try to connect it JUST for some seconds to see if the disk spins.
Warning: you can burn your disk because the classic usb omputer port use a 500mA max power while an USB A/C normally can offer up to 2000mA.
- Buy a cheap 2.5" hdd case and put on it your 160gb hdd because the board of the Apollo could be broken. In this case check before buying if you need a SATA or a PATA interface.

If nothing changes, sorry, your hdd is probably dead.

The cabel seems to have a short. Contacted Toshiba for replacement and said they do not carry or recommend one. I'm looking for same size, 1ft.


Hi,

Generally you cannot find replacements for this type of cord. The simpler solution is to take the drive to your local PC shop and ask the techs there to swap the harddrive into a new enclosure that will come with it's own cords.

Hope this helps FixYa,


Chris
