Question about Western Digital 500GB My Book Pro-External 500 GB Hard Drive
It slipped off my table, a few cm's to the ground. It has stopped buzzing now but it still will not read that I have a hard drive plugged in.
I am on a Mac, are there any possible solutions to getting the information off?
Ok so there are a few things you can try. firstly simply remove the case and see if anything internal is damaged, DO NOT go and start prodding a pulling anything that seems broken, as odds are you will make it work. If there are any internal damage odds are you wont be able to restore any data unless you get it fixed by a professional.
My solution is to take the Hard drive from its housing and put it into your computers dvd drive, inserting all necessary cables eg power supply and the reader cable. dont do this when pc or hard drive are switched on. this has happened to me before and i was able to recover all of my data.
hope this helped.
