Verbatim 1tb Hi. One day I suddenly couldn't access the files on my verbatim 1tb hard drive. I've tried with different computers, but the problem's still there. The computers all find the hard drive, but they say I have to formate the hard drive before I can reach the files.... What can I do to save my files? Thanks

option 01. try the unit on another windows pc. if its the same. i am afraid you might have an issue with the device.

option 2 . you could remover the **** from the enclosure & fix it directly to the pc so that you can retrive the data. however this will have an impact on your warranty

Ouch!
If the installation disk that came with the drive has any sort of troubleshooting or recovery tool, try that first. If not, try the trial version of System Mechanic from Iolo. It's a really good piece of software that could help recover the data if possible.

As a last resort, the Verbatim website suggests Norton Disk Doctor or Data Rescue X. They may have free trials. You'll have to check their website.

Beyond this, you're probably looking at a professional data recovery company. That can be expensive!

Good luck! Remember to rate the solutions!

SOURCE: how to avoid formatting drive

What did you format to,fat,fat32,NTFS,

I am not sure if your saying you had it on a desktop pc and now you plugged it into a laptop, or its always been on the same computer
and it just wants to format.

Either way, a computer should not want to format, usually you have to tell it to format, and the only reason to format a hard drive whether internal
or external ,is to change the file system from one to another,

example; FAT to NTFS , or your going to install a operating system to the hard drive.

Its sounds like you had it in a computer whether the same one or a different one, and you did not use the safely remove hardware, or you unplugged it while it was writing data back and forth.

Turn both off, the computer and external hard drive, plug the hard drive
into a different USB port, or firewire, how ever it connects.

Now turn on the external hard drive, wait a few minutes, now start the computer, once in windows if you see this I want to format you hard drive, tell it no, go to control panel and open devise MGR, and look for a yellow shield, under Universal serial bus controllers , the one that has a yellow mark, right click on it and choose properties, read what it says
in the open box, if it says disabled, enable it, if it says no driver,
click on driver tab, and click update driver.

How do i fix a verbatim 53032 1 tb external hard drive to recover files? suddenly it turned to raw drive recognized by the pc but the blue light is on


Hello,
Computer external hard drive could become RAW file system due to a series of reasons, including virus attack, drive unformatted error, and drive corruption and more.
And no matte which one yours is, always remember not to format this RAW USB hard drive before you do take left drive data back with success.
Hence, from now on, stop writing this RAW drive and perform data recovery processes there to see whether all your original drive files are still recoverable.

Verbatim 1tb external hard drive turning on


Make sure the appropriate drivers are up to date:
http://www.verbatim.com/index/support.php?lang_id=1&cat=9&section=
Try different ports on your machine, reboot your machine, try connecting it to a different computer if possible.

Type in diskmgmt.msc into the search bar, and see if the drive shows up here at all. If it shows up, but doesn't have a drive letter right click and use the assign drive letter option.
Contact verbatim for a replacement cable.

My new verbatim 53018 1Tb harddisc is not working, my computer does not see it.


Im not sure what computer you have, but whenever I use an external hard drive on my computer, an icon either shows up on the toolbar, I dont think in your case thats happening or you would have obviously seen it, however if you have a start or home button on your toolbar on your regular desktop location then you can click to open your computer menu e.i. control panel, word, games,...etc.. look for your "computer" file, click to open, then look for "Hard Drives" or "Devices and Storage" also check and see if anywhere in those menus if there is a "Removable Devices and Storage" tab, if you find these menus and verbatim 53018 doesnt show up in any of your menu tabs then try creating a file on your computer and saving it to your hard drive in the "Save" file location, if its connected properly then you should see a message screen that asks you which location would you like to save your file, it should list all possible storage locations and hopefully Verbatim 53018 is listed.

Hope this helps you out.

My Verbatim model #47512 1tb makes this beeping sound every time i connect it to my computer why?


That beeping signals a failure to communicate between the disk and the motherboard of the pc - the disk is defective. You have a slim chance of recovering what's on it by removing the actual disk from the external case and plugging it in the a desktop.

It got formatted to NTFS and I lost everything...Can I get back to original Fat32 and restore files?


The is a very good program called Filescavenger which will recover files from your disk. I know I have used it and on a verbatim 1TB. The problem I have is that my Verbatim 1TB Model53018 keeps losing its visibility in windows and I have to recover all the files and transfering to another disk!!! Its just bollocks and I won't be buying another one of these **** things. Pay more and get a reliable disk. If Verbatim want to send me a fix... feel free and I might take down this comment. steve@bar-telly.com

Verbatim hard drive wont turn on


I have the same problem with my verbatim 1 TB HDD, the only one difference is that i accidentally ejected the USB cable from the hard drive (not from the laptop) and after that the connection was lost of course and the small green light on the front side of the hdd was out. i reconnected the hdd but it never turned on again. the same thing happened to my samsung hdd around a year ago. i will never no more trust in these things they're a kind of ****.

Lacie 1tb external hard drive into ps3 is not regconised


I have the same issue, however with my verbatim 500g its ok. i believe it is because the lacie is a desktop external and therefore is compatable with windows xp and 7 alone.
Verbatim is a "portable" external hard drive which makes it compatible with several different systems. I would suggest returning it, I just formatted my old verbatim harddrive and set up mediaasharing. Through my router. You can actually route the lacie harddrive by going to my computer and right click the icon. Next go to share with; advanced settings and allow all. Then when you turn your ps3 on search for media servers... I would suggest to google media server for ps3 to get it all seet up. GOOD LUCK
