I have had just had this issue with one of my clients external drives. In most cases it will either be the outer shell/usb headers that are faulty or the hard disk itself is faulty.

The power light coming on, the drive spinning up, light blinking etc are good signs but by no means an indication the drive is in anyway working.

It is quite likely your drive has failed. To check this I would extract the drive from the external USB shell/caddie and connect the inner hard disk through other methods. For example another USB caddie. If you find the drives detects, installs and operates ok you can safely assume the previous shell/caddie was at fault. If you find the drive still does not work I would run a test with Seatools:
SeaTools Seagate

If the drive fails Seatools diagnostics or simply does not get detected by the system I would say the drive had failed and needs replacing.

You may want to recover your data if drive failure is the conclusion of testing, this free tool may be helpful to you in that case:

Alternatively data recovery specialists could be helpful to you, below is a link to a company I can recommend:

SOURCE: Dropped StoreJet 2.5

Drives are very delicate. If it has been dropped, I'd copy everything off and bin it. You could buy a new drive itself and put it in the Transcend case - saves money :-) It sounds like the drive heads would have been damaged by the drop.

SOURCE: hello, my storejet 160gb hard disk

There are 2 solutions for your problem, but both of them request advanced knowledge in hard drives arhitecture and computer operating. First solution works under windows and is called Victoria 4.3 for windows. It's a tools for diagnostic and repair at low level for hdd and you can find it free on the internet, for these method you can use your hdd conected to usb, second it'a also free and it's called MHDD and you can find it at www.hddguru.com, for these method you must remove hdd from the enclosure and connnect it directly to your computer motherboard and boot from the cd created with MHDD, but be very carefull, you can destroy your hdd permanently if you don't now what to do, and you can lose all your data, so if you have an IT specialist ask him to do it.

Hi my Transcend 320 GB harddisk is not getting detected. Storejet 320Gb


hello

connect the USB external hard disk to usb port by the way disconnect other working harddisks
available on the system, boot the system with bootable cd/floppy go to command prompt and run
chkdsk on this drive

Also download "mbrfix" connect all working harddisks along with the nondetecting harddisk and run mbrfix for the USB defective harddisk

Try using different USB data transfer cable, if power source adapter is used check for rated power output in multimeter for this adapter, if found defective replace it with new/good adapter with same
specifications

Bad luck if harddisk controller has failed you have to go in for new harddisk

GOOD LUCK ooo

Hard disk no open


Hello, may b your other harddisk mite hav sum errors in it. Hope its detected in windows, bt not accesable.

Try booting with any linux live CD (google "puppy linux", its just 90MB approx) and connect the harddisk. Now access ur harddisk from linux. If u still cant access it, then u should format it.
if it works in linux, then backup all ur improtant data and format it wit NTFS. Ur prob shud b solved!!

Hard drive problem


It's possible that your computer's motherboard is "old", and it only supports a maximum of 32GB per disk-drive.

Buy a new 80GB or 160GB disk-drive, and copy all your files from the "old" disk to the "new" disk.

Hard disk space not found


The 19 missing gigabytes is probably being used by the operating system.
System restore will eat a lot of space after a while.
Also 160GB, all register as 149GB.
