The Code 43 error is one of several Device Manager error codes. The Code 43 error will almost always display in the following way:
"Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)"
Details on Device Manager error codes like Code 43 are available in the Device Status area in the device's properties
rror Code 43 Troubleshooting
Restart your computer if you haven't done so already.
There is always the chance that the error Code 43 you're seeing on a device was caused by some temporary problem with the hardware. If so, a restart of your computer might fix the Code 43 error.
Note: Some users have also reported that powering off their computer completely (not just a reset) and then turning it back on has corrected their Code 43 issue, especially if it exists on a USB device. In the case of a laptop, turn it off and remove the battery, wait a few minutes, and then put the battery back in and start the computer.
Did you install a device or make a change in Device Manager just before the Code 43 error appeared? If so, it's very possible that the change you made caused the Code 43 error.
Undo the change if you can, restart your PC, and then check again for the Code 43 error.
Many people say that they have major hard disk Read ERRORS, and sometimes loose data, That is to die for, even some attempt suicide. :)
Any how There are few steps to be followed up in order to get your peak hard disk performance 1. ALWAYS CHECK YOUR POWER SUPPLY for right power that is giving to your hard disk , cause in some countries power failure or load shedding or power cuts are even more then developed countries so in those countries power supply can damage the hard disk , but according to my own personal experience Disk Read Error are found to be in SATA drives much greater then the old IDE hard drives
2. Always give the C drive volume less then other drive (c drive is in which windows is to be installed) like for instance you have a 80 GB hard drive and you have 4 drives C: D: E: F: then give
10 GB to C: 20 GB to D: 20 GB to E: 30 GB to F: it can be done when you are installing any OS , cause in this situation you have to create partition for these drives . in that case due to windows files in contact to 10 GB the hard disk will be optimized.
3. Always De-fragment your DRIVES from time to time especially DRIVE C: here is an image how can you perform that
4. Perform data recovery scans & automatically fix errors when ever you get a read error go to any file follow steps (i) My Computer > drive c( or whatever your drive gets read error ) >properties
(ii) in tools tab click error checking (check now) button , then in sub menu check for check the automatically fix file system error and also check attempt of bad sectors then press start ......
it will take some time cause it completes 5 phases,,, ( i recommend this when you are free and not using any drive )cause even sometimes it takes a restart .
If the hard drive is damaged then it is near impossible to recover your data without expert help. There are companies that can recover data from faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services. Check the Internet for companies near you that can service hard drives.
have you dropped it? it could be any number of disc errors, two of the most common errors are caused by viruses and dropping. try putting the hard drive in the freezer for a day or so in a moisture and static resistant bag. just a possibly remedy, if that doesn't work, try removing the casing on the hd and setting it as a secondary drive after you plug it inside a desktop computer.
ok when you say it doesn't copy completely you mean the only folders that are need for back up copied ? the only folder that ever is copied for back up is your documents folder , one other folder that should be copied as well is the folder that contains your executable programs , everything else on the computer belongs to Windows your OS and can not be copied , everything that runs through the OS registry can not be copied as it was already copied when you installed your OS . allot of external HDD enclosures have a one button back up I suggest not using it and manually back up what is needed software is required to run an automated one touch back up and this software's firmware is always out dated , and external HDDs should always be turned off except when entering backed data , they should never have operating systems installed on them and sometimes if they are on while the computer is booting errors can be applied from the C: drive which will contaminate the static HDD (external) and cause it to malfunction
The inpage error is generally the sign of a failing drive and usually the one you are clicking on when it pops up. It is indicative of recent or pending failure of the drive. This means it may not be accessible through normal means, however they can sometimes be repaired(cases such as having been powered down without ejecting).
If your's was unplugged while copying or before using the windows eject function, this is likely the case. If the drive letter is X open your start menu then:
XP/2000 Click Run, then type CHKDSK X: /F then click OK, restart the computer and let it run the consistency check.
Vista: Click into the searchbar and type CMD then hit enter, when the black and white command prompt window comes up type in CHKDSK X: /F then hit enter. Type EXIT then hit enter. Restart the computer and let it run the consistency check.
Either way, if it works and the drive is back copy the important files onto the computer as you should always have them in 2 places. If it does not work you will likely need the help of a pro getting the files back.
Remember, Backup drives are for keeping backups, in the future always keep everything in at east two places. Although I love my friendly neighborhood data recovery specialists, life is cheaper and less frustrating when we don't need their help.
Smart errors are telling you the drive you are inserting will fail soon. It has recorded errors that indicate that drive is no longer usable. The drive still may work right now. But there is no telling when it will bite the dust. It could be 2 hours, it could be 2 months. I would trash the drive with smart errors.
This problem suggests either a problem with the enclosure electronics or your drive is having electrical/physical problems.
First thing I would do is:
If running Win2K, WinXP or Vista, check the System event log for errors relating to the "Disk".
If no errors, try another USB port or another computer. See what happens.
The Blue light is power, the red light is activity, a constant red light means interface problems (as noted above).
There are more troubleshooting procedures after the above, but for now they are a bit premature (and lengthy).
Let me know what happens.
