Re: Won't Connect

Got an email from acomdata tech, that the drive was going to crash and should remove files before it did; well, did not and now cannot access drive at all. Note: firewire only.

I am going to try to connect it to an old iMac I have in my possession and see if I can get it to be recognized. I hope like hell too or I will have a nice looking paperweight.

Next, will try online software recovery products and maybe Spinrite.

Sorry, I cannot be more helpful than this.

Re: Won't Connect

Well you'll need to be more specific! Does the PC at least pick up the device? Does it come up when you plug it in? Is it in the safely remove hardware list? (Left click on the green arrow by the system clock) Does it show in device manager? Is it a new drive or have you used it before? There could be several reason why the drive is not coming up! regards, babb

Why won't my hard drive show up after I restart my computer?

I'll Suggest you to open the case and connect the hard driver data cable connector to other port in the mother board. Second thing you can do is change the data cable of hard drive and try with other one.
Third thing you can do is check if your SMPS is providing proper Voltage or not.
Try above steps and let me know the results.

External hard drive won't show files

If it behaves like this for multiple computers with multiple operating systems, I would think that the problem is with the hard drive or with how the files were stored. I would recommend trying a free recovery utility:

If this does not work, there are professionals who can do this service for you however it is generally expensive.
As a last ditch effort, boot your computer from a free Ubuntu CD ( and see if it recognizes your files.

I can't access my drive, even though all my tests say it's fine.

Right click on my computer and click manage then click on disk management. Find your drive and give it a drive letter. It probably just needs a drive letter so you can recognize it in my computer,,,Good Luck and let me know if this works...Darren
