Plug it into a friend's computer (in the same cables as his main drive) (Turn the system off and pull the plug out first!) Tell us if it works there.

Data loss happens all the time for various reasons. That's why you need to learn how to use a CD burning program to transfer the pictures to CD's. If you don't want to burn often, get yourself a 16GB little flash drive at least.

Replace the cable you are currently using with your printer cable and see if it is the cable if that is not the case I would open the case, and check your connections on the hard drive, there is a chance it might have come loose.

Is it "slow" only on your computer, or also on some other computer?

If it _consistently_ is slow, then it probably has at least a one-year warranty. So, return it to where you bought it, and get it repaired/replaced.

500Gb SimpleTech Ext Drive No Power


Hello.
It sounds like you might have a problem with the power supply.
I have seen MANY external hard drives with failing power supplies. Take it to the store you purchased it from for a check up, it should still be under warrantee if its only 3 months old.
Good Luck!

Seagate 500 external hardrive


It could be that the PCB or the connection within the external casing has a problem.

Try disassembling it and putting the Hard Disk into another external case to see if the disk is okay, if it is then viola! you have your data back.

Hitachi external firewire hard drive crashed


First - In the future, make sure you store your data in *2* places all the time, not only on 1 external drive. Otherwise, you are guaranteed to lose your files at some point.

You will probably have to take the drive in somewhere that does data recovery to retrieve your files.
