If it is the USB adapter that is part of the enclosure, (not the disk itself) you can transfer the HDD that is inside this enclosure into a generic external HDD enclosure. either that or you can use an external HDD adapter to access the data on a disk (like Magic Bridge), this is and adapter without the enclosure, and is fairly handy if you need to get data from HDD in this way.. or to Clone disks

Driver verloren

Mathieu, Let op dat je geen enkele schrijf actie naar de drive uitvoert.

Als jouw drive niet meer herkend wordt, moet je voor het operating systeem even de drivers installeren die te maken hebben met externe, USB drives.

Maar om zeker te gaan dat het aan de computer ligt, kun je modekijk bij een bekende de drive een keer aansluiten. Als blijkt dat de schijf wel herkend wordt, maar je kunt geen bestanden meer lezen, moet je een herstel programma gebruiken, zoiets als van Ontrack of soms kun je van firma\'s die geheugen kaartjes verkoken recover programma\'s ophalen.

Als blijkt dat je op een andere computer gewoon de schijf kunt benaderen, kun je met het (her)installeren van de drivers op jouw eigen PC verder gaan. Houd er rekening mee dat ook externe drives geen eeuwig leven hebben, Maak tijdig op een andere schijf ook een backup.

Een backup is geen backup. Zorg ervoor dat je tenminste naast de originele nog twee backups heb, liefst op twee verschillende media.

b.v. op externe drive en op DVD (blue ray) en of in de cloud.

Due to short circuit the board on my hitachi HD got burned.Can i still make hard disk work?

If the PCB board is burned, there is a possibility that your data is still in the drive and that the drive can still work. However, at the very least you will need a new PCB board from Hitachi.

Either that, or put the harddrive in a 3.5 SATA external enclosure,

If it is of the style where the Harddrive plugs into an interface, and the interface is mounted to the small circuit board. the board may be damaged beyond simple soldering techniques. (Circuit trace damage)

However, not what you asked,

I burned out my external hard drives PCB board and I am unable to find a new one

The Printed Circuit Board ON THE Harddrive inside the Seagate FreeAgent, or the small PCB inside the Seagate FreeAgent's external enclosure? (Case)

If you are referring to the small PCB that the Harddrive connects to, and has the USB cable coming from it, just buy an external enclosure, and install the Harddrive into it.

If your Seagate is like the one in the link above, it has a laptop size Harddrive in it, and it is a SATA unit.

2.5 inches across in width. (2 and a half inches)

This is an example of a 2.5 SATA external enclosure,

IF you are referring to the PCB on the Harddrive itself, good luck.

One method would be to buy another harddrive like the one in the Seagate FreeAgent, and use it's PCB so that you can retrieve your information.

Then reinstall the PCB on the new harddrive.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Hi guys, my seagate barracuda 7200.8 300 gb hard disk notworking. power is not coming to external harddisk, so i open the case connect it to lap by using some wires(dont know given by my friend), stil...

I have the same problem like yours right now. The on-board circuit of my Seagate Barracuda burned and I'm planning to buy new Seagate Barracuda with the same specifications, same model.. I will try to disassemble the circuit of the new one and connect it to the old hard drive to take a chance if it will work and retrieve my files. If it doesnt work, at least I try and I still have a new hard dist to store my new files.. If you want to do the same, you must be careful in handling the circuit board. It is very sensitive and can be damaged with just touching the components.. I recommend you to discharge static electricity of your hands by touching anything that is made of steel.. The steel will discharge static electricity, but still, to make sure you wont damage the circuit, just touch the circuit board on its sides.. Never touch any components, it will damage your circuit board.

I need a new internal power supply for my 2tb external its an Iomega prestige. I just want the part number for it so i can order a new one.

There is no internal power supply. The unit gets it's power from the computer. A USB port has 5 Volts DC.

Inside that external enclosure of the IOmega external harddrive is just an ordinary harddrive as used in a desktop computer. A SATA harddrive.

The harddrive plugs into a small circuit board with an interface on it, or there are cables, (wires), which come from the circuit board, and plug into the back of the harddrive.

It is this small circuit board that is usually the problem.
The solution to this problem is to simply just buy an economical external enclosure, and install the harddrive out of the IOmega into it.

Just one example from a quick search for an economical SATA 3.5 external enclosure,
A laptop harddrive is 2.5 inches across in width. 2 and 1/2 inches.
A desktop harddrive is 3.5),

Have additional questions or need clarification to what I have stated, please post in a Comment.
