I can,t access to my storejet hard


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.

No access


try other usb port, or other computer and see whether the hdd is detected. If still not, try to go to device manager ( http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000833.htm ), and then assign a drive letter to the hdd. After that, try to access it from Computer, if not able to access it, format it (use quick format) and then use this file recovery software called asoftech data recovery to recover your files.

Seagate freeagent Go 640 gb not being reconised on my computer can't access important files


Try using a different computer to access the hard drive. If another computer cannot access the hard drive, then most likely the hard drive itself is corrupted, and you need to reformat or replace it.

I have the maxtor hard drive, and i want to save alot of my photos on the hard drive but NOT on the computer (but be able to access them everytime i plug in my external hard drive. please help!


The only way you can access that Hard dive on a different computer is to make it a slave.
Look at the jumpers on the rear and set it to either SL or CS (cable select)
I may have misunderstood your question because first you are saying a hard drive ( like an internal Hard drive) then you are saying external hard drive ????

Unable to access files


To access the files off the hard drive another way - remove the hard drive from the case and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and then plug it into a working computer's USB port. If the computer see the hard drive as an external hard drive/storage device and you can open the folders and files then backup your data. This also indicated the hard drive is OK and the Western Digital case/electronics is faulty.
To use this as an external USB hard drive, put the hard drive in an USB adapter case.

Simple tech 500 gb external hard drive


It is not necessarily the hard drive itself that has failed. More likely it is the enclosure and the hardware within in that enables you to access the device. The only way to know for sure, is to connect the hard drive inside your PC and see if you can access it. If it accesses fine when inside your PC, you should be able to buy a new enclosure for your drive and be back up and running with very little effort. If the drive cannot be accessed when hooked up inside your PC, it is unfortunately dead.

Good luck
