The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable


You unplugged it when data was still written on it so it was corrupted. Some files are still recoverable so use

You may want to open the drive and check the internal connections first to make sure none came loose after you have powered it down.

I devised these simple steps that tend to remedy quite a few issues with most USB portable / external hard drives and devices (though not always)

A few things to check but assumes USB and Windows for other interfaces / operating systems (mac/ Linux) similar steps may be adapted to suit.

1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability

2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer. Not all USB cables are equal even though they should be)

3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.

4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.

5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again. This can be especially true if you move a HUB to another port

If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues then check your hardware from CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE.

Any exclamation marks by hardware need fixing before you investigate any further
USB flash drives can fail for no apparent reason.
Sandisk Cruzers are especially bad for this.

USB hard drives should be treated with extreme care. this is a real hard drive and knocks and bumps can quite literally kill them.

If a drive is CLICKING after an accident there is a very strong possibility that it is dead or dying. This is known as the "click of death".

Dog knocked over drive while on, now it does not work.


Sorry but its dead.When a hardisk falls down and it gives  scrathing noises and is not recognized there isn't anything you can do anymore.I know there are companies specializing in data recovery but there not cheap.Usely they rebuild the harddisk.

Seagate 250GB FreeAgent USB 2.0 Ext Hard Drive with laptop


Whether your computer is a laptop or desktop does not inherently decide if the drive will work or not. If it can't see the connection, there must be another problem with the drive. I would suggest reporting what you have done to try and make it work and anything you notice out of the ordinary (how lights on the drive are acting, noises the drive is making, alerts you see when you plug it into your laptop, etc). That will allow us to better help you find a solution to the problem.
