I have a problem with my LG External HDD HXD5. It's installing on my system (windows) but I unable to access. The computer is asking m to initialize the disk and I wondering to lose all my data

in the past i have used GetDataBack program utility and worked fine. Before that you could also try HDD regenerator to check and fix any error on the disk.

Kindly help me with this problem i have an external lg hdd hxd5 which is visable as F: but can not be accessed and giving this error.

click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or

if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver

sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable

just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,

check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems

if this fails to fix the problem
you might have to install a usb 2 or 3 card they are cheap and easy to install you can buy these on Ebay very cheap
hope this helps

I have a LG external hdd hxd5 500gb, it was working fine and was never dropped, now the PC does not pick up the drive and can not see it in device manager. Its making a scratch like sound, if gears are...

That sound is made by the platters of the disk rubbing on the reading heads - the hard disk is dead , it has destroyed itself. All the data is lost.
Sorry, there is absolutely nothing you or anyone can do about that.

Go back on Device Manager, right-click the HDD and choose 'Uninstall'. Go through this then unplug and plug back in the HDD. Hopefully if the drivers you downloaded are installed it will recognise it first time.

I have an lg HXD5 external hard drive 320 GB. My laptop has windows vista home. When I plug in my external drive 1) it takes almost 5 minutes to load 2) it will not let me copy files Could you help...

I don't know about the slow HDD problem but maybe about the COPY problem......
try this....
In your BIOS menu, check if there is any setting for USB devices...
If there is, then enable it....sometimes these settings are set to disabled and so the USB device becomes locked up(meaning you cannot copy or paste anything out of it or inside it)....
