SOURCE: drive not detected in windows,

Did you set the jumpers on the hard drive to what you are using the drive for like master or slave or cable select. If you are putting it on the same cable as another hard drive you have to pick weather it is the master or the slave.

Crashed external HDD Verbatim


Hard drives are easily damaged by dropping them.
When a hard disk makes a clicking sound and the computer does not detect it then the hard disk is faulty. This is commonly known as "The click of death".
There is no way of fixing this hard drive, if you need to recover your data, then there are companies that can recover data off faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

Depending on what kind of files you need to recover, Recover My Files is an excellent product for recovering the most common file types. If you want to do full data recovery, try Get Data Back for NTFS or FAT32. It is an amazing piece of software.

Hope this helps!

Hard Disk Drive Not Detected


Does your hard drive get detected in the BIOS? If yes then you can recover data by plugging that hard drive as secondary and running a recovery application like Recover My Files.
