Question about Western Digital My Book Pro Edition II WDG2TP10000 1 TB FireWire 400 (1394a) Hard Drive

1 Answer

Unrecognized Drive, Unusable Files

When my drive connects to the computer, it has unusable file-retrieval times (plus videos tend to break up constantly). That's when it connects. Most of the time, it either sits there, noiseless, and unrecognized, or it starts to whir up the normal soft way it likes, but then it clicks a few times, the soft whir dies, and the crazy heavy-usage load whir that I don't particularly like blazes up for about 10 seconds, then dies down as the soft whir kicks up again and the cycle repeats. What is happening to my beloved Dark Star? She's such a good friend, I can't bear to lose her.

Some MP3 files play, other don't.


could be an issue with the format of the file .. or could be that there is a virus on the computer attaching itself to the mp3 hence the player is not able to read them .. but the system is able to play them anyway.

try downloading a new file and see if that works. if that file is working fine . .then there could be issues on the computer causing the files to be unusable.

Unusable recovered photos


You probably recovered the thumbnails of the picture, as Windows often does that to speed up picture loading. Look for other picture files.

Well, you can run a check disk on unit - it will identify bad sectors and try to move contents to another good sector. The bad sector is marked as such and will be unusable in future. But if unsuccessful in reading contents, the program that the files belonged to may become unusable unless you reload it. If they were OS files the computer may become unbootable.

If errors are excessive the program will bail out and not complete the exercise. Generally, when you get bad sectors that is the beginning of the end - you just do not know when unit will die. It might last a long time, might die next day. So you gotta be prepared with backups for the eventuality.

I was copying a big folder from My Passport Essential to my HDD (Windows 7) and I cancel the operation. After this the Drive become unusable and Windows continuing asking me to format it. I think this is...


> the Drive become unusable and Windows continuing asking me to format it.

Either the blocks on the disk normally occupied by the "Table Of Contents" for the files on the disk has been accidentally overwritten by "random" bytes, or those blocks have become unreadable.

Say 'yes' to allow Windows to reformat the disk, and write a new (but "empty") "Table Of Contents" file onto the disk.

Computer won't recognize hard drive anymore


The clicking sounds and lack of response makes this sound like a dying hard drive to me, sorry to say.

I would try it on another computer if possible.

There are data retrieval experts but they tend to be expensive, files need to be quite important to make this worthwhile.

Try it another computer.

If it still fails, there are alot of online companies that will be able to retrieve the data for you- although Im guessing the drive its self will be unusable.

Problem open up my maxtor one touch 500gb to retieve photos


first, recover your files. You will need to use hard drive deleted photo recovery program like Asoftech Photo Recovery, you can follow this video to recover deleted photo

I've had to use it many times in the past but in this case you need to plug that drive into another system as an external drive or slave drive and run the software from there. It will rebuild the drive and hopefully recover the files.

After you get back your files, you can then format the drive and reinstall your system.
