Question about Maxtor Personal Storage 3200 (U01E200) 200 GB Hard Drive
Help! have I done my dash for good? Can he get it fixed? School starts on Monday and he has that 'last minute' assignment to complete. Can I open it and give it a shake? It vibrates and makes a little noise. I don't know what it usually sounds like.
If the hard drive itself is damaged, recovery of any data on it may only be possible by sending it to a business specializing in such. I'd suggest opening the case of the unit, and you should find that the drive in it is what is in a desktop or laptop computer, with the appropriate electronics to adapt it to USB. There will be at least one cable connection to the drive- make sure it is properly seated. I've seen an instance where the only problem was a partially disconnected cable. Another possibility, is, if it is a standard drive, to let a tech savvy person take the drive itself, and connect it to a standard computer, and see if it is then readable. If so, data can be recovered.
