SOURCE: Replacement hdd for a Toshiba MK4026GAX (ATA)

Any brand-new ATA hard-drive (you probably won't find any new hard-drive smaller than 80GB) will be compatible. Pay a few extra dollars for a 7200 RPM drive (rather than 4200 or 5400 RPM).

My WD elements 1.3 TB external hardisk. It gives a buzz when connected and is not recognised by windows


It sounds like the HDD inside is dead. The USB interface may have an issue but usually clicking or buzzing is HDD failure. If you have a desktop you can try removing the hard drive from the external case and connecting it directly to the computer using a SATA cable.

I dropped my book essential 1tb 2.0 hard drive and now it wont let me open without formating and say Data error (cycle redudency)


Since your disk is showing up with a drive letter, hopefully, check disk (chkdsk) can help:
http://www.wikihow.com/Fix-a-Cyclic-Redundancy-Check-Error
(this if for Windows XP) Google "checkdisk windows [your version]" if it doesn't translate well.

Falls are a huge cause in external hdd failure, though, so I wouldn't be surprised at all if the disk is beyond help. Try connecting to another computer (to see if the problem still occurrs) or another operating system (you can boot to a linux live cd) or, at least, use another USB drive on the computer you are connecting to.

Next step would be to *cross fingers* hope the external enclosure suffered damage, but that the actual drive did not. If you are comfortable doing it (likely voiding your warranty), disassemble your external enclosure and remove your SATA hdd. You can open your PC and connect it to your motherboard assuming you have an available SATA connection, SATA cable, and available SATA power hookup. Alternately, you can buy a 'kit' to connect a hdd to your pc via usb, which prevents you from having to open your PC. It is much more convenient if you can diagnose without purchasing 1-time use hardware, though.
(Google "sata to usb" -- i buy from NewEgg usually, cheapest with 4 stars)

You can try data recovery software, but they haven't been very helpful to me in the case of physical trauma to drive.

Data recovery outfits (expensive) may help if the information is not otherwise recoverable.

Good luck!

My Toshiba 1Tb External Hard drive Light Isn't coming on!


It sounds like the usb port on the drive itself is shot. You can actually take apart the case and pull just the harddrive out and use a hotswap usb harddrive reader and get to your files again

How to recover data from a broken Western Digital My Book Essential


Remove the HDD inside the case,If the HDD inside is working, remove data with a usb to IDE/SATA Adapter. If the HDD is damaged, which is likely, It ,most likely, can be read, but I don't think you are going to like the bill for that service.

Shows up as "Initio Combo Device Class" not a "Disk Drive"


RESOLVED the ISSUE...!!

Hi, Yesterday I get into similar problem of having my USB Drive ( WD passport Elite 320gb ) not being detected by my PC and as soon as I connect to it, Initio Combo device class drivers gets loaded and Drive do not show up in the device list...!!
I tried several options.1. Freezed my hard drive for 12 hrs in the freezer. It did not help me today.2. I have opened the USB drive shell ( becareful, I have damaged it.. see the instructions before you try t ). You can find the 2.5' HDD inside and there will be SATA to USB bridge adapter. I was having doubt on this bridge unit as I read through several blogs.3. luckily I have a unused 2.5' Laptop HDD. So I have removed this bridge unit carefully and tried to connect to my HDD. If the bridge is good, my HDD must be detected right away..But it is the same problem.. It did not work.. Hence I have confirmed that it is the bridge problem..
4. I bought a Rs. 250/- ( 5$ ) 2.5 SATA casing that is available in the market to use the 2.5' SATA HDD through USB. ( actually I do not know where I can buy only the bridge..hence bought the entire unit..which is still cheaper )
5. From the new unit, I have the USB to SATA bridge, which I have connected to my WD HDD SATA USB hard drive... Bingo.........It is detected by OS and I have started copying my important data immediately...
6. This Unit comes with a casing ..hence you may continue using this case... But some units may not fit well..still the bridge is usable..!!



I GOT all my data..with just Rs.250/- ( $5 ) ..I am happy to try this on my own..!!


Good luck with your drive..!!

What type or brand of hard drive do I have to get to install in Acer AM5641 Desktop ? I want to upgrade to a 1 tb hd.


You currently have a 320GB 7200-rpm SATA II hard drive, with 8MB cache install on a base package of your make and model of computer. I would recommend a hard drive like Samsung Spinpoint F4EG 2 TB Internal hard drive. You can find it roughly for $70.00 - $90.00 at online stores like amazon, new egg, etc.

I hope this helps.

Want to replace 80Gb HDD with a bigger one. How? Do I have to copy everything from the original one to the new one before actually replacing it? how?


Hi there,
Before you change the 80 GB Hard Drive you can take the backup of your hard drive to the External Hard Drive or if you have any sata case so you put your new hard Drive in the sata case and make 2-3 partitions in the new drive and copy your data in the new hard drive except in first partition which will be primary C Drive for your laptop and will replace data when you install windows in it. after the windows is installed and your data is verified in your new hard drive you can clear your old hard Drive or use it as an External Hard Drive (as you like )
2nd thing which is more safer and reliable is that you make backup CD/DVDs for your data before proceed to formatting or even changing hard drives, it will be very useful and helpful for any unforeseen data loss
if you require more assistance regarding this feel free to reply to this post
