SOURCE: my iomega 500gb external hard drive has a broken.

My Iomega (33654) 500GB USB isn't working. When I turn it on the blue light comes on for a few seconds. I can hear / feel it working but then the light goes off (it is still whirring inside). The computer isn't recognising it. I think it's still under guarantee but I can't find the paperwork. Do you have any ideas?

My external pc drive stopped working.i under stand the Head is broken, I want to retrive important data from it. External drive is a Ministation {Buffalo} P{lease help,


You should try mounting the hard disk internally since any external HDD is actually a normal HDD in a SATA to USB enclosure. If that doesn't work , you should try finding recovery experts in your area but that might be expensive!

Thank you for your reply. I wneed to retrive material from my hard drive and favorites list. What is the best way to do this?


Remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapterand then plug this adapter into a working computer's USB port. The computer sees this as an USB mass storage device (external hard drive) and youcan open the various folders and files, then you can backup your data.

My Toshiba HDD2171 has stopped working. I have connected it to my Desktop PC with a IDE connector. It fails to be recognised. What can I try to retrive my data.


If you tried to setup the hard drive as a slave drive and it didn't work then you might try this, but I think it you will have much success.
Connect the hard drive to an USB hard drive adapter and then plug this into the USB port of a working computer. If this computer detects it as an external storage device and you can open the folders and files then you are in luck.
If not then there are companies that can recover data from faulty hard drives, BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

I have an external freecom 400gb hard drive


The chances are that you would have burnt the Power IC's, so there might not be any damage to the Hard Disk itself. you culd try buying a cheap External Enclosure at the closest IT store or moun the Hard drive on to a desktop computer. you should be able to retrive the data.

Dropped external hdd 2.0 320gb now doesn't work, is getting power.


Hard Disks are generally VERY fragile, especially the external drives simply because the read/write head inside is a very tiny substance. your case suggests that when it dropped, the read/write head might have got broken, and which means....you might have to get a new one. BUT in a very rare case however..you can do a funny and pretty nice trick, just get another one of the same type (Exactly the same type), then get A Very Good Engineer, and tell him to help you to transfer the read/write head to the former one, just for the purpose of retriving your datas...then return everything back to its normal place. HE HAS TO BE VERY CAREFUL THOUGH!!!, so as not to damage the two hard disks!
(How I wish I could be there to fix it for you, cos I've done it A LOT before...lol).
Hope this solves your problem.

Two questions for ya:

A) When you say USB drive, do you mean an external CDROM, DVDROM, or mechanical HARD DRIVE or do you mean a FLASH DRIVE? (see below)

B) When you say "NOT WORKING" do you mean that when you plug it into ANY USB port, you get an error tone; you don't get any response; you see the drivers being loaded, but no drive appears; you see the drive appear, but no files are listed on the drive; or something else?

From these two questions, we will be much more able to help.

NOTE:
External devices that have mechanical moving parts, like CD and DVD drives often require external power sources in order for the drive to function. Even external hard drives can require a separate power source. This is because the small amount of electricity provided by the USB port is not enough to power the motors inside these external devices.

Another type of external storage medium is called a "Flash Drive". It is like a hard drive in so much as it stores data and appears in your explorer/Finder window like a hard drive. However, there are no moving parts, so it never requires an external power source.
