Question about Seagate 300GB USB 2.0/FireWire Hard Drive (ST3300801CBRK) 300 GB
I have 300 GB USB2.0 external hardrive, i am unable to see any data, it is giving i/o read write error. It shows up that the drive is connected. When i try to explore data nothing shows up and gives an error message. "I/O read/write error". Can you please let me know how to recover the data. My segate 300Gb HDD keeps asking to format it when i recently pluged it into a new computer to transfer data to and it said that the driver didnt install correctly. since then it keeps asking to format it.
I'm assuming that this was functioning at one point. If you are using Windows, Right click on my computer and click "Manage" Then go to disk management? Does it see the drive at all. If so, has a letter been assigned? It is possible that the operating system will show the drive even if it can't read the data. Look to see what file system and how it sees the disk having been partitioned. It is possible that your partition table has been corrupted. This can possibly be fixed using a tool like disk doctor or fdisk.
If, on the other hand, the drive is also making funny noises, you may have a mechanical failure on the drive.
