Question about Fantom Drives 120 GB Hard Drive
I have owned my fantom drive for about 1 yr. Recently, when I turn on my fantom drive, my PC did not recoginze the drive anymore. When I click on properties, it does show on the description that I have data stored in the drive, but when I click on the drive, it only shows a blank page. I called the fantom drive company and a tech support staff told me to buy software so I purchased a "recover lost data" software (40 bucks down the drain). When I tried the software, it did not solve the problem since I never deleted the information, my PC decided one day not to allow me to see my data anymore. I have also used the disk defragment and the check for errors programs on my PC with no luck in sight. I have windows XP on my PC. The fantom drive appears to work fine since the LED light turns on. Can anyone shed some light on this matter, I don't want to take it into a shop since I'll only get charged an arm and a leg and can't afford it, Thanks.
If you know the files are there and the drive cannot be read then there must be a read error, the only other thing to try is a different usb or firewire port as the port itself may not be reading the drive. Try it first by putting in a different port while the pc is on then plugging in and then restarting if the device is not recognised. You may also try the drive in a friends pc to see if it is port trouble and not the drive
