There are a few steps that you can attempt. Such as using diskpart to try and reformat the drive. Or trying to remove the hard disk carefully from the enclosure then putting the actual drive in a desktop computer and seeing if it is recognized and able to be formatted.

Most of the time when I have dealt with this issue. Sadly the only solution has been to RMA the device becuase there is nothing you can do to fix this issue this internal issue.

The only way to now retieve your data is to seek a data recovery service which will most likely be expensive. Especially if the data recovery service is a real data recovery service. Make sure to ask about the recovery process and how they specifically retrieve the data. If the company says that they actually remove the HDD platters from the old drive to recover the data, you are probably talking to a real recovery team. Rather than a company that will only try connecting a cable and running some software.

Risk of losing data by re-booting CD-ROM recovery disk


Copy off your data to another computer before recovering. A recovery usually restores to factory settings and loses all data.
You could boot to Ubuntu or Linux and copy your stuff that way, then when restored, copy it back.

Unable to open Hard disk drive


try running a check disk to check for errors. In windows command prompt type chkdsk C (substitute C for the letter of the drive).

Has anything happened to these drives such as dropping that would cause it to not be readable? What format is the disk FAT or NTFS?

Error sc 870


One possibility:
Address book data stored on the hard
disk was detected as abnormal when it
was accessed from either the
operation panel or the network.
?? Initialize the address book
data (SP5-846-050).
?? Initialize the user information
(SP5-832-006).
?? Replace the HDD.HDD defective

Secondly:
When the machine reaches the Ready condition after boot-up, the operator turns OFF the Main Power
Switch without first pressing the Operation Switch. As a result, the flash memory on the controller board is
damaged, triggering the SC.
SOLUTION:
1. Please be aware of the following:
Before turning off the machine's main power, always make sure that the Operation Switch LED is not
lit or blinking. By turning the Main Power OFF while the LED is still lit or blinking, may cause damage to
the machine's hard disk or memory.

Hard disk is unable to read.


try other usb port, or other computer and see whether the hdd is detected. If still not, try to go to device manager ( http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000833.htm ), and then assign a drive letter to the hdd. After that, try to access it from Computer, if not able to access it, format it (use quick format) and then use this hard drive recovery program called asoftech data recvoery to recover your files.

Lg external hdd drivers


If you have an external hard drive, the Windows O/S should have no problem seeing it as just what it is. Now if it hasn't been formatted, you will have to right-click on "my computer" and chose "manage." Then click on the disk storage (left side of the window) and see just what the computer thinks the hard drive is. You may have to initialize the disk. You right-click on the unknown disk and choose to initialize it. var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_53b6b40ed16348b49cdf9315f99f6bd0(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); } var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_c816bf7540af44a6b5615e5055f74f6c(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); }

I need to replace hard drive for a ricoh copier 1045. How can I get the software for the hardrive, and what is the maximum size of the hard drive?


No need for software. The standard hard drive size is 10GB. I don't remember the exact limit but the machine will only recongnize a certain amount so it will do you any good to buy a larger capacity drive. Just get the smallest/cheapest one and you'll be fine. These take the smaller "laptop" size drive in case you did not know. Other than that just install the new drive and let the machine do the setup. If your old drive failed then keep in mind you will have lost any document server files, scan destination or fax destination info and will have to re-enter that info.
Good Luck
