My verbatim model#53018 1TB does not respond after it is connected to my PC


Go to the Disk management service and check if the drive shows up there. The route will depend on your OS. In Windows 7, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security. Go down to the Administrative Tools and click Create and format hard drive partitions.

Look at the lower half of the window and scroll down to see all identified disks. If your external drive is listed, something got corrupted in the NTFS or FAT record. Use a third-party drive repair tool before reformatting the drive (which will delete any information on the drive). If your external drive isn't listed here, try connecting it to a different USB port. Make sure that your USB ports are providing enough power to the hard drive. (Some USB ports can be disabled for power savings/security.) If you are using a laptop, try plugging in your AC adapter/charger. If you are using a USB hub, try a direct connection to the computer (or use a powered hub).

If you are still not seeing the drive listed, there is a problem with the connections inside the external drive. Either the wiring between the drive and the controller has come loose, the USB connection to the controller is damaged or the drive failed.

If the drive is out of warranty, you can try opening the case and using a different enclosure (2.5" or USB/IDE/SATA adapter). If you have a desktop with a free SATA controller, you could try putting the drive in your system. If the disk works with another controller, the enclosure was bad.

I hope this helps.

Can't start HD, I can hear only biping sound


a biping sound is usually indicative of either a dead drive, or not enough power on the USB bus (for unpowered external drives).
If the drive will take an external power supply, but is not connected to one, try connecting a power supply to it.
If the drive is out of warranty, try removing it from the external enclosure and hook it up internally to the PC. Sometimes the enclosure interface fails. If the drive makes the same noise inside the PC, it's likely dead.

External Harddrive stopped working / isn't recognized anymore by my computers.


If you're lucky, it's just your drive isn't receiving enough current to it (and therefore can't spin - thus those strange sounds) and if you're a bit less lucky it might be an electrical problem of the controller board of the enclosure. I don't imagine you have another power supply for the external enclosure on hand, and I doubt any warranty for your product would include data retrieval, so here's what you can do yourself; Unscrew the hard drive out of the external enclosure and try connecting it directly to your PC (you will need to know which end goes where, beyond that it's pretty straight forward and you need not be a computer wizard to test it - just make sure you don't fiddle with your PC's innards while it's plugged in and as a precautionary measure unplug he power cord off it before even opening it up). Follow up on this topic if you require any additional help with it. If you can manage, then once connected, plug you PC back to the el. grid, turn it on and see if the affected hard drive came back to life. Boot to your OS and make a backup of data you need to retrieve either on your other internal drive or alternatively burn it to recordable optical media. You will need another external enclosure for your drive after it and, may I suggest, you get an actively cooled one instead. If you're unlucky, it's the hard drive itself that's gone bad (in external enclosures it's most typically due to overheating and might be hard drive's PCB board that's burnt). That will require advanced servicing and might cost you an arm and a leg to get your data back, depending on where the problem lies. PCB can be exchanged for a working one also in a DIY fashion, however it requires a bit more know-how and I wouldn't suggest you do it on your own. If the motor gave, then servicing in a "clean room" environment is required and that might get darn expensive. Best of luck, though! Please tell us how it went either case ;)

My Computer suddenly does not read my pqi HDD 551 External drive


Check the following
  • With the drive plugged in on powered on place your hand on it should be able to feel it vibrating (if no its not getting power or dead)
  • If power and vibrating put your ear to the drive (repeating and squealing are bad, crunching sound is generally ok)
  • With the drive plugged in and it sounds ok and it's vibrating[platters are spinning] right click on "Computer"/"My Computer" select manage > Disk Management, locate your drive if it is listed try to initialize it
  1. Right Click drive, properties, hardware tab, select drive, properties, volume tab and click populate
If it wont populate or doesn't show at all in storage manager at all either the drive itself is bad or the control in the external enclosure is bad. You can attempt to remove the drive from the enclosure and plug it in directly into the computer but this tends to void it's warranty. If the drive works however you can simply buy a new enclosure for about $12

When I click the power button on my harddrive the power doesn turn on. I removed all of the plugs and nothing happened


If your not getting any power use a multimeter on the hard drive power cord,, probe orientation doesn't really matter you just get a negative reading if it's reversed. One probe down the middle one of the metal on outside of power adapter. Can't get a probe down middle just stick a paper clip and just probe to that. If it is getting voltage then the dc jack inside the hard drive enclosure could have broken loose take something pointy and gently push the jack on the hard drive if it wiggles it's broken and needs to be re soldered.

My WD external drive is plugged in, and my computer keeps saying that one of the usb devices has malfunction and is not being recognized. I have very important data on this drive. How can I fix this...


The problem may not be with the hard drive itself but with the interface between the drive and the USB port. The drives in most cases are fine if they have not been dropped or abused. The problem with external drives is usually the small circuit board that contains the sata to usb interface. Try purchasing another external hard drive enclosure and remove the drive from the enclosure you now have. There are guides on youtube to show you how to take one of those WD enclosures apart. Just install the hard drive in the new enclosure and load the driver files that come with the new enclosure. You should have a working external drive....as long as the hard drive has not failed.

Samsung sp0802n HDD enclosure. I installed everything. The safe remove program detect the massage storage, but the hard drive icon does not show.


Has the hard drive been formated?
To format the drive, plug the external drive into the USB port - go to the Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Storage - Disk Management. The External drive should be listed as USB drive. On the lower panel, right click on the USB Drive and click on Format, and format it in NTFS.
After formating you will be able to use it as a normal hard drive.
