Question about Iomega Silver Series 320GB 3.5 External - 7200, 8MB, USB 2.0 320 GB Hard Drive
My iomega external hard drive (250GB) is not being detected by my laptop. I tried another laptop and another wire to connect it with the laptop but it didn't work. The light is on and I can hear voice when I connect it. I searched in the internet I think I need to change the logic board which I don't know what it is. I thought about giving it to the company but I am afraid that I lose my data.
I need the data that is on it , how can I get it?
As you have checked your hard drive connecting in different devices port and it is not detecting.
As we all know that hard disk is very fragile device and it needs extra care. A minor mistake can turn it useless. Please check your hard drive if has physical damage. and make sure it haven't fallen down. Sometimes the internal part gets damaged that we can not see. Don't use hit and try methods, I will suggest you submit your hard drive to the data recovery centre if you want to recover data.

Most hard drives have two parts that you can replace one is the circuit board that controls the read/write head sometimes if you replace this with the exact board with the correct firmware (a few star drive screws) then it might bring the HDD to life.
The sad news is that if the mechanical part of the HDD has failed then it cost you £100's of pounds to recover the data from specialist companies.
Do not despair buy a new one of at least 250GB and you could try the old fridge trick with a zip lock bag overnight I have use this once to get the drive to work for a short time at least then using Windows Commander set it to copy all the folders to the new drive I have recovered about 70% of data from a failed drive this way.
