Hi there,

This is because there is a connection problem between the external drive and the computer. If you have changed cables to no avail, you can open the casing of the external drive where you will find the hard disk inside. Unplug the two cables connected to the harddisk and replug it after a minute. Then try again. If it still does not work, then you need to buy just a usb enclosure and plug the harddisk there to be able to use it again.

Hope this helps. Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi. Thanks for your question.

  • Here's what else you can do.
  1. Check the USB cable. Make sure it's connected securely. to make sure test with other device or computer to determine that cable is OK.
  2. Once you know you are using good cable you need to make sure that Hard Drive isn't at fault. Trying to use it in other PC is the best method of making sure that everything is OK with it.

Do not hesitate to come back and ask more if none of these solutions helped you. I am sure one of FixYa expert's will be able to help you.

Thank You for using FixYa.

SOURCE: Toshiba MK6025GAS HDD (External) not recognized

from what you have written it seems that the Hard Drive is dead and doesn't have the ability to read the drive.
You will need a new hard drive this one is not recoverable.

I/O Error Device means that the pc cannot communicate with your external HDD - either the USB cable is broken (replace it) or its control board has failed. If it's the latter then the Buffalo is dead, get a new one.

MyBook WD external HDD Code 10 error


If you have tried the device in 5 different computers and it has the same problem the the problem is with the device. You might want to try and dis-assemble the hard drive case and try installing it directly into the computer to make sure the drive is working properly and to recover you files. If the drive is working then the problem is with the device interface that is built into the case or the built-in power supply.
