RX355-u not recognized as drive


With the drive plugged in, right click on Computer, Manage, Disk Management. If you do not see the drive in here. There is a problem with the drive or the enclosure the drive is in. Put your hand on the drive and check if it is spinning (vibrating). You can try buying a new enclosure from your local electronics or online store. Open the enclosure and pull the drive out and put in the new enclosure. If it doesn't work the drive is probably bad and you will need to replace the whole thing.

I need a new board card, where the usb and power adapter plug in, how can I order


Instead, purchase a "generic" drive-enclosure that is "empty" -- just the enclosure and the power-supply, and "transplant" your disk-drive from the "old" enclosure into the "new" enclosure.
Costs about $30.

I have a smart disk JH5504 that has damaged pins. Can I have repaired or hook up another way?


If it is the pins on the exterior of the enclosure that are damaged, you can buy a new "empty" enclosure, and "transplant" your disk-drive from the old enclosure to the new enclosure.
Costs about $30 for the new enclosure.

Hi My Maxtor External Hardrive is connected to my laptop the green light is on but its not recognised by the laptop.


Welcome to fixya,

The main caused of the problem is the enclosure of your Maxtor ext drive you need to change ot replace it to a new one. Take your hadridsk out of the enclosure and buy new enclosure and then put your hardisk back on to the new enclosure.

My Iomaga 500GB will not start up. When I hit the power button on the rear the blue light flashes on very briefly & nothing. I have checked the power supply & that seems fine.


Hello,

Sounds like either your drive enclosure or the drive itself has failed.

If the enclosure has failed and you don't have any crucial files on it that you don't already have elsewhere, contact Iomega for a warranty replacement.

If the enclosure has failed and you DO have important files on it, try having your local PC shop move the hard drive into a new enclosure, if that works you're done, buy the new enclosure.

If the above suggestion fails, your drive is damaged and you will need a pro to help get back your files. If this is the case, reply back with you location(Country, State and City) and I will pass along recommendations for your neck of the woods.

Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris

Hi, I have a Maxtor Personal Storage 3200 and it stop working. The light only dimly flicker. I think this started when i accidentally plug my Acer laptop adapter to the power supply of the drive. Is this...


Hello,

Considering the drives adapter operates at 12 volts and most Acer laptops run at 19.5 volts, I'd guess you fried the circuit board in the enclosure if not the drive itself.

The good news is you can replace the enclosure and test the drive in a new enclosure to verify which is the case. If a new enclosure works, you're done, if not then you will likely need the help of the pros to retrieve any files you need from the damaged drive.

Either head to your local PC shop and have the techs transfer the drive into a new enclosure for testing or click www.aitsavemyfiles.com and they can help you pick one out online if you're in a remote area. Either way if the enclosure works you're done, if it doesn't you've fried the drive itself and will need to see the above company for assistance finding your files.

Thanks for using FixYa,

Cant access files on my harddrive


Hello,

It sounds like either the enclosure or the drive inside has failed.

If the enclosure has failed and you don't have any crucial files on it that you don't already have elsewhere, contact Maxtor(Seagate) for a warranty replacement.

If the enclosure has failed and you DO have important files on it, try having your local PC shop move the hard drive into a new enclosure, if that works you're done, buy the new enclosure.

If the new enclosure fails, your drive is damaged and you will need a pro to help get back your files. If this is the case, reply back with you location(Country, State and City) and I will pass along recommendations for your neck of the woods.

Hope this helps FixYa,
