Most likely the vacuum and not the ants. The vacuum could have given it a dangerous charge or vibration. You may need to extract the drive from the enclosure. It possible ( hopefully) that the enclosures bridge board failed instead of the drive. When you extract the drive, you will see....its construction is made well, and can stand up to crittters..


keep me posted.

SOURCE: Data recovery from External Usb Hard Disk

Fixya has received a growing number of USB connected Hard disk failures in recent months. It would appear they are a poor backup device, at least over the long term.

A couple of possibilities: First, disassemble the drive enclosure, and check the connections to the drive itself. I've seen one instance where an internal connection was just loose enough to cause a problem.

2. You could try removing the hard disk from the enclosure, and installing it as a second drive in a standard desktop PC. Interfaces must of course match- assuming it is an IDE interface, install it in a desktop with that drive connect system.

Master/slave jumpers must be also set correctly.

After this, using the drive management tool in Computer Management, try mounting the drive.

Beyond this, data recovery could be difficult at best. There are data recovery services available, but such is fairly pricey. You will have to decide just how valuable your missing data is.

To save your data from a bad Wd Ebook you need to download UBUNTU and burn it to a cd. Boot from the cd. Do not install Ubuntu just click try it out. When it loads turn on your Ebook and iit should appear on the desktop. If not click the places tab on top and find it there. Right click the EBook and mount it. Now you have access to all the data on the ebook. Iy yoou have enugh space n your cpu hard drive save it there, if not you will need another surce large enought to copy the data to.. I have used this method to save many hard drives, flash drive and other unreadable media. if the drive is totally toast you are out of luck but this method works moost of the time. Any questions drop me an email.

when you power up the computer press F2 or "del" key to enter in bios then go to usb option and enable usb 2.0 legacy. then save settings .
then check.
some times usb speed make issue so try this.
Also check your usb cable working fine try with other usb cable.
Also check harddisk jumper settings.

SOURCE: usb2.0 hdd external hard disk-unrecognizable device

One or more of the hints below will probably sort out most USB problems with most USB portable / external hard drives and OTHER devices (though not always)

A few things to check but assumes USB and Windows for other interfaces / operating systems (mac/ Linux) similar steps may be adapted to suit.

1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability

2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer. Not all USB cables are equal even though they should be)

3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.

4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.

5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again. This can be especially true if you move a HUB to another port

6. For FLASH DRIVES you should ensure that the device is set for "quick removal" using the drive control panel properties or use the USB "Safely Remove Hardware" option. If you dont do this there is a very strong chance that any files you transfer may not be there when you plug into another computer.
7. It is possible to remove drives from the enclosures in most cases and connect directly inside a PC to fully check it.
You should also do this to cheack the drives connections are not bad inside the enclosure.
 
8. If none of the above steps help look at updating the drivers from the manufacturers web site in the support section.

9. If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues then check your hardware from CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE.
Any exclamation marks by hardware need fixing before you investigate any further
10. ensure that you have set removable drives for "quick removal" or that you use the "Safly Remove Hardware" option often shown on the lower toolbar.It is possible that files my not be fully written to external devices before they are removed. This corrupts the file itself and even on occasion the drive.
SPECIAL NOTES
USB flash drives can fail for no apparent reason.
Sandisk Cruzers are especially bad for this.

USB hard drives should be treated with extreme care.
This is a real hard drive ! and knocks and bumps can quite literally kill them.

Note that if you hear a drive clicking or pinging this could be the worst thing you would hear.
Known as "The Click Of Death"
Hope this gives you the information you need

In a Sony vaio the Fujitsu hdd reports an error and is unable to boot. When I hook the hdd up to a different system the files are accessible and usable. (ex. You can play music that's on it). How can I...


When you connect the Fujitsu to the Sony laptop. use disk management utility to see how the how the sony is characterizing the Fujitsu. If you can access the files on the Fujitsu from another computer, the Fujitsu is not faulty. Your connection with the Sony is the problem. Disk management utility instructions are listed below:

Right click on you "My Computer" Icon

A menu will open

Chose "Manage"

The Computer Management window will open


The Computer Management window is broken down into 3 sections.


The first section on the left side of the window shows a menu. Disk Management is on the lower portion of the menu.


The right side is separated into two sections, top and bottom. The top portion shows a list of active drives on the computer. The lower portion shows all drives connected to the computer. CD or DVD drives that have not disk will not show as active drives on the top section, but can be seen in the lower section.


The lower section will show the drive description, drive size and drive condition (online or off line) in small box on the left side of that section. Disk drives will designate a "Drive" and a number. Drive 0 is usually your internal hard drive. Then it would list drive 1, drive 2, etc, depending on how many internal and external drive sources you have connected to your computer. Then it will list your CD drives and generally show their drive letter assignments.


Next to the smaller section described above, is a larger section which shows the driver letter, size of the driver and condition (if working correctly will show "healthy")

This is the area you can right click and get a menu that will allow you to open, explore, mark the partition as active, change the driver letter, format the drive or delete a partition. (A note of caution here. Changing the driver letter on your main hard drive partition will cause windows to stop functioning. The main hard drive, or hard drive partition, is normally given the letter "C".) A hard drive may show two or more partitions with separate drive letters designated for each partition.


A drive that is having a problem may show that it needs to be formatted (status as Unformatted). This can be done from this window. An external drive, whether it is a hard drive or CD/DVD drive, can have the letter designator change done if you want to organize your external drives. There are times when a drive will not show up because the drive letter that they are programmed to use are taken. Most USB drives are programmed to us the letters "F" or "G". In this area, you can assign the USB drive any drive letter that is not being used and this will make it visible in windows.
I hope that this information is helpful, if so, please rememeber to leave positive feedback.

Thank You,

Brian

Please check if your HDD is visible in storage management. You must be logged on as Administrator or as a member of the Administrators group view and modify most properties and perform most computer-management tasks.

To start and use Computer Management on the local computer:
  1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel. Click Performance and Maintenance, click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Computer Management.

    The Computer Management window for the local computer is displayed. "Computer Management (Local)" is displayed at the root of the console tree.
  2. In the console tree, expand System Tools, Storage
Then check if your USB HDD is visible under one of next options. This is for windows XP.
If it will be presented there try to right click on this drive and format hard drive. Also please recheck your jumper position. This picture might be very useful c33351b.gif

Unless it's windows 98 you don't need a driver. If your computer can't see it, it's probably broken. Try plugging it in to another computer and see if it can see it

Seagate 750GB usb HDD asks to format,when opening by double click


The disk is either damaged or the USB interface is damaged.
1) You could try opening the external case and connect the disk to your computer directly (Using IDE/S-ATA cables)
2) Format the HD and use data recovery software/service.

USB HDD not showing in My Computer


It could be that the USB port on that computer is not delivering enough power.  Will your Drive accept external power?

My external Samsung HM120JC 120 GB Hard Drive not responding


Not sure what could be the problem.
There are many issues here.

- Did this drive worked before?
- If it did, was this your boot drive?
- USB cable and connector problems
- How is this connected to the drive?
- Is it in a package that came with the drive complete, or you had to install it?

My two cents... Samsung and other Japanese drives are not that reliable and if it's new, return it and get a Seagate drive. They have five year warranty and much better drives.
