System not detecting my external hard disk

I have a MAXTOR 1 TB harddisk. last night i backed up some of my files and turned off my laptop(i dint use the 'remove hard drive' option since i was shutting down my system). I connected my hard disk again today but my system is not detecting anything. I tried connecting it to another system but even that dint detect anything. The hard disk is externally powered and the power led is illuminated and i can also hear the the disk running.

The external hard drive (1 TB) started making a noise last night. It was still working. Today it is still noisy and will not show up on explore at all.


Your hard disk is damaged. The data you have on the hard disk could have been recovered when it started making noise. Looks like crashed heads of the disk. If it is under warantee, take it to the manufacturer for replacement.

Maxtor DiamondMax 11 is a SATA Hardisk and you need SATA External Case. After adding the Harddisk, all you have to do is connect it to the system via the cable of the external case. There is no need for additional drivers/ CD as all the external harddisks are 'plug and play'and the Operating System detects them automatically.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

Hi there i hav ea maxtor onetouch 4 mini 120 gb.


Remove the hard drive from the Maxtor case, purchase an USB hard drive adapter case, and install the hard drive inside this case. Then you can connect this to the computer's USB port and if the hard drive is OK then this computer will detect it as an external USB hard drive, then you can open the folders and files and back them up.

Hard disk not detected


You can't do very much, the damage is already done. The only thing you can do is to remove the hard disk from the case, put it in a pc and try to access it from there - most likely you will have to use a recovery soft to get some of your files back. Once that's done test the disk for faults using HDTune, the free version. If it reports errors, even small ones, then it's dying (or already dead) - junk it and buy a new one.

OK the only shot you got is to geta USB to SATA/IDE converter dongle, connect to another PC's USB port. Hopefully, you will be able to read it. Otherwise still plugged in you may be able to use recovery software and get you DATA back. Recover my files is one,

Maxtor external harddisk recognition problem by pc


Hi Maxtarm,

It sounds like either the drive or enclosure is failing rather quickly.

The first and cheaper solution is to take the drive to your local computer shop and have the techs there move the harddrive into a new enclosure and test it. If it works in the new enclosure, you're done, but please take my advise and never rely on a single copy of your files. Always keep your important files in 2 or more places, on your computers hard drive, external drive and a backup to CD's or DVD's you can store in a firesafe or friends home is a good idea.

Now assuming that change of enclosures doesn't work, you will need the help of a recovery pro to get your files back. If that is the case comment back here with your location (Country, state, city) and I will advise you on a reputable recovery provider in your location.

Hope this helps Fixya,


Chris
