SOURCE: WD 250 GB external hard drive is not being detected by system

Hi !

First check if your WD is running (spinning), no matter if the blue light is on. Can you hear it close with your ear, or feel vibrations on your hand when it starts.

If it runs, then check/replace the USB cable you are using with another.
Check the Power supply if it gives necessary power.


If you are familliar with disassembling/assembling, then open and remove the HDD from the box and try to connect the disc directly to your PC (using another HDD Data/Power cables).

If it runs, and you can acces it, then something is wrong with the Box.

If it doesn't, then the HDD is broken or damaged.

Please note that if your device is under warranty, DO NOT open the box ! Contact your seller for service/replacement instructions.

Regards.

SOURCE: I have a Lacie 250 GB hard drive. My computer can't find/access.

Hi,

Thanks for all the info, it really helps us help you when we have the full picture.

The Seagate drive you are seeing is the hard drive inside the Lacie Enclosure. The fact it is showing up in disk management is a good sign for getting your files back. The fact that it shows as empty with no format type listed means that either the partition was deleted or damaged. This would be akin to loosing the microfishe in your local library. All the data is likely still on the drive but windows has no way of knowing what is there or where it is.

In either case the data can generally be recovered by a pro with speciallized software. In some cases you can do this yourself with similiar, less expensive software but I always warn Askers that this software requires significant knowledge to operate and you cannot recover the files back to the same drive therefor you must have another drive with at least double the space free of the data on the drive to do it yourself.

Let me know which approach would suit you better, if you choose the do it yourself method I can suggest software for <$100 that you can try but it carries inherent risk of damaging the data if you make any mistakes. f you choose to have a pro do this for you reply with your Country, State and City and I will recommend someone for you. For this type of failure recovery varries but usually runs $150-$500 depending on the volume of data you have.

In either case DO NOT format the drive or attempt to use it for anything in the mean time as every operation that writes to the drive runs the risk of overwriting your data and rendering it unretrievable.

Hope this Helps FixYa,

Chris

Tip

How to speed up your computer's performance?


Information: There are some few guidelines that you can follow to maintain your computer and keep it running smoothly.

Free Up Disk Space
By freeing disk space, you can improve the performance of your computer. The Disk Cleanup tool helps you free up space on your hard disk. The utility identifies files that you can safely delete, and then enables you to choose whether you want to delete some or all of the identified files.
Use Disk Cleanup to:

• Remove temporary Internet files.
• Remove downloaded program files (such as Microsoft ActiveX controls and Java applets).
• Empty the Recycle Bin.
• Remove Windows temporary files.
• Remove optional Windows components that you don't use.
• Remove installed programs that you no longer use.
Tip: Typically, temporary Internet files take the most amount of space because the browser caches each page you visit for faster access later.
To use Disk Cleanup

1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click Disk Cleanup. If several drives are available, you might be prompted to specify which drive you want to clean.
Disk Cleanup calculates the amount of space you will be able to free.
2. In the Disk Cleanup for dialog box, scroll through the content of the Files to delete list.
Choose the files that you want to delete.
3. Clear the check boxes for files that you don't want to delete, and then click OK.
4. When prompted to confirm that you want to delete the specified files, click Yes.
After a few minutes, the process completes and the Disk Cleanup dialog box closes, leaving your computer cleaner and performing better.
Speed Up Access to Data
Disk fragmentation slows the overall performance of your system. When files are fragmented, the computer must search the hard disk when the file is opened to piece it back together. The response time can be significantly longer.
Disk Defragmenter is a Windows utility that consolidates fragmented files and folders on your computer's hard disk so that each occupies a single space on the disk. With your files stored neatly end-to-end, without fragmentation, reading and writing to the disk speeds up.
Run Disk Defragmenter
In addition to running Disk Defragmenter at regular intervals, optimally monthly, certain events warrant running the utility outside of the monthly rule of thumb.
You should run Disk Defragmenter under the following circumstances:
• You add a large number of files.
• Your free disk space nears 15 percent.
• You install new programs or a new version of Windows.

To use Disk Defragmenter:
1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click Disk Defragmenter.
Click Analyze to start the Disk Defragmenter.
2. In the Disk Defragmenter dialog box, click the drives that you want to defragment, and then click the Analyze button.
After the disk is analyzed, a dialog box appears, letting you know whether you should defragment the analyzed drives.
Tip: You should analyze a volume before defragmenting it to get an estimate of how long the defragmentation process will take.
3. To defragment the selected drive or drives, click the Defragment button.
After the defragmentation is complete, Disk Defragmenter displays the results.
4. To display detailed information about the defragmented disk or partition, click View Report.
5. To close the View Report dialog box, click Close.
6. To close the Disk Defragmenter utility, click the Close button on the title bar of the window.
Detect and Repair Disk Errors
In addition to running Disk Cleanup and Disk Defragmenter to optimize the performance of your computer, you can check the integrity of the files stored on your hard disk by running the Error Checking utility.
As you use your hard drive, it can develop bad sectors. Bad sectors slow down hard disk performance and sometimes make data writing (such as file saving) difficult, or even impossible. The Error Checking utility scans the hard drive for bad sectors, and scans for file system errors to see whether certain files or folders are misplaced.
If you use your computer daily, you should try to run this utility weekly to help prevent data loss.
To run the Error Checking utility:
Important: Be sure to close all files before running the Error-Checking utility.
1. Click Start, and then click My Computer.
2. In the My Computer window, right-click the hard disk you want to search for bad sectors, and then click Properties.
3. In the Properties dialog box, click the Tools tab.
4. Click the Check Now button.
5. In the Check Disk dialog box, select the Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors check box, and then click Start.
In most circumstances, select Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors.
6. If bad sectors are found, choose to fix them.
Tip: Only select the Automatically fix file system errors check box if you think that your disk contains bad sectors.

You can recover data from hard drive with data recovery software.Then format the drive toget it fixed.
For data recovery program,here are two of the best Iused.

For Windows: http://www.any-data-recovery.com/index.htm
For Mac: http://www.stellarinfo.com/mac-data-recovery.htm

You can download one of them and scan your hard drive for free to previewwhether your files can be recovered. They will show you the file name, type, dateand of your files and thumbnails for your pictures that it found on yourdrive.

When my laptop boots up it says operating system not found

I power up the computer and get ''operating system not found'' on the screen.


The operating system not found error message is one commonly seen by techs and non-technical people alike. If you run into one, it may not be a problem at all. Here's an example:

If you're installing a new operating system to a hard drive or partition, or have just installed a new mother board, chances are you aren't alone. Most of the occurrences of the operating system not found error occur during these processes. In many cases, this is simply BIOS related, and can be changed very quickly (and remedied) during the Boot process. There are a wide variety of occurrences of this error, so if you have recently been "tinkering" or have installed a new operating system, take heart, there are many computer forums on the subject which may be able to point you to an answer.

Another reason why you may get an operating system not found message, is due to a damaged or incorrectly formatted partition. If your computer can't read the partition, then all data stored within that partition cannot be found. This includes your operating system. To solve the problem, you may need to look into partition recovery.

There are instances, however, when the operating system not found error occurs because of file system error, or worse, hard disk drive failure. If this is the case, you may require professional hard disk drive recovery, especially if you were not changing the system details recently, and were just working as normal.
When To Suspect Hard Disk Drive Failure Certainly, there is an explanation for everything, and the operating system not found error can be explained very easily. First, check your floppy disk drive. Is there a disk in it? In cases where this occurs, simply removing the floppy disk will likely solve your problem. Your computer may have been looking for an operating system on the floppy, and as a result, you were handed an error message. Removing the floppy disk should fix your issue.

If there is no floppy disk in your drive, it may be time to check the boot sequence. You can do this in your BIOS. First of all, does your hard drive get detected as the primary hard drive? If it does not, your hard drive may have in fact failed. If it does, move to the Boot Sequence section of the BIOS. If your hard drive does not show up within the first three boot devices, you probably have a problem. Adjust your BIOS accordingly.

Can't Find Hard Disk Drive Either

If you've done these preliminary checks, and are still receiving the operating system not found error, you could be facing hard disk drive failure. If this is the case, remember : DO NOT PANIC. 99 times out of 100, your hard drive's data can be recovered by a professional firm. So rest easy. Then try this test if you have another computer system available.

First, disconnect your hard disk drive from your system, and connect it to a system you know works as the slave drive.

Second, boot up the system and go into Windows explorer. If you can see the drive, you may not have a problem at all, or have one which can be fixed with simple data recovery software tools (Do a search on Google for data recovery software tools for a selection).

If, on the other hand, you cannot see your drive, you may want to consult a professional hard disk drive recovery shop like Hard Disk Recovery Services. Contact us here for a hard disk drive recovery quote, and we will usually be able to diagnose your problem over the phon
