SOURCE: exturnal hard drive fell

The fall was probably too much for it. If it was powered up at the time of the fall and the fall caused a substantial shock, it is most likely gone. A running hard drive cannot take much shock.

Before giving up on it, if it was mine, I would remove the hard drive from the portable case and plug it directly into a computer either through a USB adapter, directly to a motherboard or any other available method you may have.

The purpose of that is to bypass the case's electronics and deal directly with the actual hard drive.

If it wont read from it by doing that, you are done.
You could try a warranty claim if it's new enough.
If your data is extremely important, you can send it to a data recovery service but the costs are high. $500 or $1,000 for data recovery isnt that unusual.

Re-post here, let me know how it goes.

I Have a Hitachi Lifestudio hard drive attached to my Apple G5 for 7 months now, and suddenly just dessapear of my desktop or menu the Computer it won't recognize it anymore HELP!!!!!!


ry connecting the external hard drive to another computer to recover/backup your data.
When you have such a large capacity hard drive, it pays to have a second large capacity hard drive to backup your data in the event of the other hard drive dying.Hard drives do fail especially if you accidently drop it.

Why not just pull it out instead of clicking on safely remove hardware? Try it and see if it works. Sounds like your usb drive is not windows 7 compatible. Or windows 7 has some driver issue which is not uncommon.
