Question about Teac 120GB External USB 2.0 3.5 Retail Kit - HDU120/KIT HD3U-120 120 GB Hard Drive

Open Question

TEAC USB Hard drive stopped working

I have a TEAC HD3U - 120 GB external hard drive. I was using it yesterday copying pictures and organizing them. I got an error that said the drive was unavailable (I don't know hte exact error). Ever since then, I have not been able to access the data on the drive.

When I hook it to my computer, it is recognized and in My Computer, when I click on the drive, it says: "USB drive is not formatted, Do you want to format it now?" Of course, I have not formatted it.

I am running Windows XP. it shows in My Computer, but does not have any data in the size of the drive or amount used. right click -> properties shows Zeroes in Capacity, used and free. I rebooted my computer, and the drive, and tried the drive on a different computer. Got the same results.

Please help. Thanks,

-Brett

No current driver for Smartdisk 120 GB HD, needed for Vista Ultimate 64bit


Any external drive uses a USB connection, and Windows Vista will recognize this "plug-and-play" device, using the built-in device-drivers.

External hard drive won't let me transfer files from my Macbook.


Has it only just stopped working or has it been unable to work from the beginning? Are the files you are trying to transfer to the Hard disk already in use? I would recommend reformatting the hard drive. Formatting will put the hard drive back to it's original state. It will wipe all the data though, so make sure you back it up first. If that doesn't work then I'm not sure. Macs are not usually prone to viruses.
