Generally speaking the cable is a regular connection that goes to the computer and a USB micro connection that goes to the hard drive. This would apply to enclosures using a 2.5" laptop drive.
It would be a regular USB connection and a USB 'B' connector if the enclosure uses a 3.5" full size hard drive.

An external storage-device has four major components:

* the USB cable

* the power-adapter

* the disk-drive inside the enclosure

* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.

One of these components has failed.

Try a different USB cable.

Try connecting to a different USB port on your computer.

Try connecting to a USB port on a different computer.

Take a "multi-meter" and measure both the voltage and amperage output from the AC adapter, and compare with the specifications on the label on the adapter.

Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and then connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if it works at all.

Purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

Get the part-number and serial-number from the label on your disk-drive, and access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status", to see if they will replace the device, at minimal cost to you.

Note that W.D. has a "Customer Loyalty" program -- you can buy a new W.D. device, through the W.D. web-site, at a significant discount.

There exist commercial "data recovery" services that can try to repair your device, just long-enough to rescue and copy your files. For example, see: https://services.seagate.com/index.aspx?lng=en-US for a "no data - no charge" guarantee.

What kind of usb cable do i need for my x5650 printer. i just bought it and it didnt come with the usb cable. so what kind do i need and where can i purchase it from


The connector type on one end is the standard USB Type A while the other end is the USB Type B. It's probably available at electronic shops around your area. But, if you like, you can contact Lexmark Technical Support and request for that. They can send you one for free. You just need to provide them some info about your printer like the serial number and your personal info for documentation purposes. Hope this helps. If you need more assistance, leave a comment and I'll get back to it. Thanks.

WD WD1200B008-RNN not recognized by laptop/desktop


I had a similar problem with some other brand of external drive. I disconnected it without being stopped and then nothing would recognize it. It was new when this happened, I contacted the manufacturer and they sent me a files with software and instructions to recover it. It was not that easy since I'm no computer geek, it took quite a while but finally the drive worked again. Info was lost since I had to formated it, can't remember exactly is low level formatting but alive again.
Also try to go to my computer icon on the desktop and right click, go to "manage" there you'll see an option for disk management, there you might be lucky and make it work again.
Hope this helps, regards.

Connect the external disk-drive to another computer.
If it still is not recognized, then you have a problem:
* the USB-to-disk-drive interface inside the case is faulty,
* the disk-drive inside the case is faulty.

If the former, disassemble the casing, and extract the disk-drive,
and temporarily connect it as an "internal" and "slave" disk-drive to your desktop, and see if you can read the files.
