Question about Computers & Internet
I bought a USB disk on key with capacity 64 Gb. It works as long as it is connected to the computer, but as soon as I disconnect it all the data on it is erased. Will it help if I reformat it?
It won't help to reformat it. The disk is probably defective. Return it to the vendor ans ask for a refund or a replacement

Hey guys. I have an answer on how to fix the Trekstor Datastation "Removable Disk" problem.
I also own a Trekstor Datastation 500GB and had the same problem even though it worked for several months then all of a sudden when I tried to hook it up to another computer, it stopped working. It would recognize the USB connection but you could not read the drive as it would say "Removable Disk".
In "Device Manager" it recognizes the drive as Sundata USB2SATA. But what it really should be is "WDC WD50 00AAVS-32ZTB0 USB Device" or something similar to that. For those that are wondering, yes, the hard drive is a Western Digital Hard Drive. Western Digital Caviar to be exact.
Solution: You need to open the cover to the hard drive and reconnect the hard drive to the connector on the board. It's that simple!
It is very loose and this model is not well designed so it can easily come off if you accidentally knock over your hard drive or move it to another location. The hard drive is held in place by screws on a holder where there is room for the screws to slide if the screws are not tight enough.
You'll need a T10 screwdriver bit to remove the cover and a Phillips screwdriver to adjust the hard drive.
NOTE: Doing this will probably voids your warranty but trust me, it works and it's really easy and quick to do. Took me 15 minutes.

SOURCE: Mac not Reconize my MyBook
load the driver for mac use, the external hard drive comes with cd, the mac driver should be inside, load it to your mac computer. if you donot have the cd go online to western digital and download it. just load the driver and u will be fine, make sure u connect the cable in right places.

Hi, Take the drive to a pc store and ask the techs to move the HDD into a new shell and test it for you. Most likely it's ok and you can just buy a new shell/enclosure for it. If that doesn't work it may need the help of a recovery pro. If that's the case comment back here with your country/state/city and I'll pass on a recommendation for a nearby facility that can assist you in retrieving the files. Chris

Not possible, sorry. The drive controller PCB is not user-replaceable. You can take it to Doctor Disk or similar business near you, they may be able to recover your data, but it will cost...
Thats what backups are for.

Tips for a great answer:
Just load OS CD in to your dvd driver and restart it
*Note to wi-fi users. I recommend you use a wired connection for everything until XP is completely setup. Disable the wi-fi connection on first boot or as soon as you get the drivers installed. To disable the connection Open your Network Connection Properties, go to Start > Run > type control ncpa.cpl exactly as you see here > right-click on the wi-fi connection and choose disable.
Start your computer and insert the XP disk. If your computer supports booting from a CD you may need to change the bios startup options. The key you press to access the bios may differ depending on the make of your computer. Most use the DELETE key, if not then it will be one of the FUNCTION keys (F1, F2, etc.) Save changes and exit. If your computer does not support booting from CD then insert the first Windows XP floppy disk.
As the system boots you will see a message at the bottom of the screen:
"Press F6 if you need to install a 3rd party SCSI or RAID driver." If you do, follow the instructions.
