SOURCE: drive is connected, blue light

The click of death - the hard disk inside has suffered a terminal mechanical fault. Sorry, nothing can be done to fix it, it's dead, just junk it and buy a new one.

SOURCE: Cannot access HD-PNTU3 External Hard Drive in Windows 7

Windows 7

First, please disconnect all USB devices and then perform the following steps:


Click "Start" button, type "devmgmt.msc" (without quotation marks) in the "Search" bar and press "Enter". Click "Continue" if necessary.



In Device Manager, double click to expand "Universal Serial Bus controllers", right click on the Host Controller, click "Uninstall" and click "OK".



Repeat the step 2 to uninstall all items under "Universal Serial Bus controllers".



Then, restart your computer and Windows 7 will reinstall all USB controllers automatically.


If the hard drive that has failed is the same one that you are trying to recover from might the reason that you are getting this error.


This could be an issue where the part of the hard drive you are trying to access is corrupt and not accessible which would explain the reason that it would let you access the other partition.


Now I have seen cases where Malware can break the link of a Hard Drive.

So let's try a couple of steps.


Let's go back in to "Disk Management"

Lets right click on the partition that you are not able to access and select "Change Drive Letter and Paths"



Now try selecting a new Drive Letter.

This will restore the path if it has been broken.


There are also Data Recovery programs that might be very helpful to recover your important information.

hope this helps

How to access my Buffalo HD-PNTU3 external hard drive?


dropping it while turned on is fatal as it usually damages the write heads and/or the platters.
if it hit the floor, changes are it's physically damaged the mechanism.
recovering data from a drive with this damage is not cheap as you will have to send it away to be rebuilt. It's impossible to rebuild it yourself.

Driver for HD-PNTU3


This drive showing as not supported for Linux as you mentioned.
Usually this is due to the board inside the enclosure.
You could crack open the case and mount the drive internally which would resolve this issue.
Otherwise you are down to trying to find a driver (not made for this model) that will be recognized by your system.
