Question about LaCie External USB 2.0 500GB 7200 RPM 500 GB Hard Drive
This problem may seem obvious because unlike anyone here it seems, my HD is the only one that fell. I had it on top of my tower and a cord was pulled accidentally and it fell off the tower. the tower is only about 1-1.5 feet of the ground. Despite my realization that it may just be broken and thats it, the light still turns on and i still get that little sound it makes when the computer acknoledges its turned on. however the computer doesnt recognize its there as a drive. nothing shows up. I also have to admit the sound it makes is a little more aggravated than a low hum like it used to be. i thought maybe its ust the firewire it uses? let me hear your thoughts.
If the spinning sound is not clean anymore there is damage to the hard drive and I doubt it will be easy to get the data out. If the drive still shows up in the disk management you can try to access it with a tool like ddrescue and then run photorec on the created image. If you want somebody else to do it for
you there is Data Recovery NYC. Also there is good informaation on hard drive repairs on hddguru.com.
