Calvary 1TB USB 2Bay external hard drive problem

I bought this and used it for months with no problems. Now, no matter what computer USB access I used (I have tried several from computers we own) it does not show up under My Computer to be accessed. It is running, the fan is blowing and the light is blue. Anyone have any idea what to do. I have data on this that I need to get to. Thanks.

The problem could be the enclosure, not the drive.
I would take the drive out of the Calvary enclosure and install it in another one. Hopefully it will come up and you can access your data.

Many MP3 players will not go to the menu when connected to the computer. You have to access them from the media player. It should not matter if you plug the MP3 into the USB ports on the front or back of your computer.

What kind of problem are you having with loading tracks from your media player? What media player are you using?

Hi and welcome cj4man1 !
Extract the Hdd out of your old computer . Place it in a external usb box and connect the box to your new pc . You will be able to access and transfer your data .
The issue about your old computer is another matter an could have several reasons , such as power supply , damaged Hdd , defective memory , damaged motherboard ...etc ...

Try using a different USB cable. Try a different USB port of that computer. If you have another computer, try using it with this hard drive.

It kinda sounds like it may be that USB hard drive too, getting flaky (going bad).

Trying different cable, USB port and another computer should help aid in debugging this. If it works with different items (cable, different USB port or computer) then you know it's your computer causing issues or it's operating system. If it's all the same outcome with different items tried then it's the hard drive causing issues. Not much to do but get another drive.

It should not matter if your computer's BIOS is set up for USB 1 or 2 support. The drive should still be seen with all files/folders in it, without slowdown or issues you've described.

Externals can be a pain. Mainly because of their casings that can cause failures to happen for no apparent reason. If your warranty will be expired and/or the drive is not showing in "Computer Management - Disk Management" I would suggest removing the casing from the external and plugging the hard drive you've extracted from the case into a desktop.

If the drive is still not recognized after being installed into a desktop I would look into data recovery. My personal favorite data recovery software is Knoppix which is an OS(linux) booted from disk.

Probably not the right answer for your problem. Mine is an external 1 TB Simple Drive. Mine wouldn't respond at all. I unplugged the power cable from the back of the hard drive and replugged it in and instantly it worked (with the computer and hard drive plugged in). I had tried rebooting the computer, plugging/unplugging over and over into the computer and that didn't work.

Sandisk Cruzer no longer prompting for password


I think the problem is corrosion on the contacts. Shut the computer off. Gently insert and remove the USB drive several times to try and clean the contacts. Turn the computer ON and when Windows has set up properly, insert the USB drive and see if you can read it. Many of the new drives and reader ports do not use gold contacts (too expensive) but use copper or aluminium which corrode easier an easiest.

Can not get pictures from camera to a computer folder


Hello and welcome to FixYa

Please go to a electronics store and buy a USB card reader. I bought one last week and it cost $0.5 so its cheap as dirt. Then simply remove the card from your camera , pop it into the reader and the pictures will appear on a drive like a flashdrive in your my computer folder.

This is a much better option than using the camera's cable as it is faster , safer , saves on your camera battery and you don't need to install any software or drivers.


The card reader will most likely also still be compatible with any new camera you buy in future.

Kind Regards
Andrea

Computer will not recognize keychain


I'm not too sure from your question what your problem is. Do you mean a USB flash drive/key? Most modern ones don't even require driver installation. Neither do they have a button on, so I must be off point. Without more specific information, the only thing I can suggest is to connect the key directly to a USB port on your computer, and not via a USB hub if you're using one. Sometimes computers can take up to a minute to recognise the drive, after which time to can access by clicking on My Computer.
