    There is no message.It's an external hard drive which now only makes the odd whirring noise when switched on, but is no longer being recognised by the pc.

Since I uploaded some movies onto my hard drive the to no longer recognises it


Always make sure you use good cables. Don't forget to power up the HD. Be aware if the power for the 2,5 " drives has to come over the USB cable, that the computer has enough output power on its USB sockets. Could be one or two sockets don't have power or not enough to power up a HD.
Just try another cable and another USB socket on your PC.
Or when you have an external USB hub, make sure you connect the power supply that came with the hub. Without one, your drive will not het any power.

Hard drive no longer recognised


for more Do not format your hard drive. We will evaluate your drive, and if the problem is only a logical recovery issue, we will recover your data for $150 per 250GB disk capacity. You would need to provide media for us to recover to, and we would send the recovered data back to you. If the problem requires physical recovery, we could get you a quote for the deeper level recovery service. Come see us at http://htcilabs.com/services/data-recovery-services/ for more information.

I have a maxtor 250GB black usb 2.0 hard drive that is no longer recognised by my PC. The usb port works OK with other USB appliances. Its not a high speed 2.0 port but thats not been a problem in the...


Try connecting this drive to another PC/laptop. If the hard disk does not get recognised, you may have to seek help from Maxtor / authorised service personnel to diagonse the issue with the hard drive. Given that there is circuitry in between the actual physical disk and its USB port connector, chances are that the data on the hard disk would be safe and the intermediate circuitry may have suffered a brown-out. Good luck!
