SOURCE: The USB plug on the SeaGate Hard Drive 250GB 7200RPM is broken.

Most companies make external HD's as a means to use up their stocks of the obsoleting ATA (IDE) HD's. My bet is that unless they joyously announce (usually on the box) that it has a "SATA" drive inside, then they must have an IDE (which they don't usually announce so readilly).

Unless it voids your warranty I suggest you just pop open the drive and look.

SOURCE: Windows Vista does not boot with hard drives plugged in

I had the same problem with vista home 32bit. I accessed the bios then went into usb configuration, and disabled the "legacy suppor" for usb, this is an older support for usb 1.0 before 2.0. Once disabled was able to reattach two external hdd, and reboot normally

SOURCE: Travel Drive Broke

It depends on your skill level as to if it can be fixed or not. The data is most likely still safely stored on the flash chip inside the drive casing. However, the USB connector has been just ripped off. If you have any experience soldering it would be as simple as getting a replacement usb plug from an electronics store or cutting a cable you have and then soldering the USB connector back to the flash drive inside the casing. This is something than can be done at home or possible by a repair shop that does any type of soldering work(tv, radios, ect) Most computer repair shops will look at you silly if you ask them to solder a thumb drive back to life. I would not expect more than to be able to mount your drive and copy the data. Odds are after you cut it out of the casing it will never go back in correctly.

Good Luck

SOURCE: I accidentaly broke the input on my toshiba canvio 3.0 portable hard drive

my personal solution to this isnt somthing most people would try ever but i do it all the time for people with broken flashdrives. if its anything like what ive dealt with. just find the seam or skrews keeping it together and take the whole thing apart, if its a normaly a small laptop like hard drive it will most likely have a sata connection and will be easy enough to connect directly as a slave to your computer and you can pull all the information off if it. if it isnt like most other hard drives then you may need to find a connector like it off of ebay. if you dont feel comforable doing this. find someone who is

SOURCE: USB broken

Pop in to your local PC shop. You should be able to buy a new cable relatively cheaply.

What are the parts called - Data connection plug broke off inside freeagent external drive


You can try installing the drive into a new enclosure as long as the internal circuitry of the free agent did not alter the formatting of the hard drive. IE in a buffalo external drive the internal circuitry creates a linux partition on the hard drive that cannot be read by windows directly.

E05A100PBU3XS toshiba hard drive no longer recognized


For internal hard-drive:
There's a possibility that the hard drive is cooked. Try running a hard-drive self test by accessing the BIOS screen of your laptop. If the test fails, the your hard-drive is already broken.
Try re-seating your hard-drive. Take it out then put it back in again. If it doesn't work, the hard-drive is broken. If you have a similar drive available, try replacing the drive that displays the error. If the extra drive works without any problems, the old drive is broken.
Consult a local technician. They should be able to assist you in resolving problems like this. They might also be able to help you retrieve important data from the broken drive.
You can also call your computer's manufacturer for troubleshooting or replacements.
For external drives.
Fixes:
1. Plug the hard-drive into another port. 2. Plug the hard-drive to another computer. If you get the same error, the drive is no longer usable.

Bios setup does not show sata HD windos xp find them


Hi,
I have had problems like this many times with some of my IBM machines. What i find most often the reason the bios will not recognize them is because the hard drive has gone bad.
Troubleshooting 1. Unplug power cable from computer before doing anything inside of the computer. Unplug sata cable from motherboard and hard drive. Unplug power cable from hard drive.
Plug the sata cable back into the motherboard and into the hard drive. Plug the power cable back into the hard drive. Plug the power cable back into the computer.
Boot computer and enter bios(by pressing F8, Enter, Del ect..) Does the hard drive show in there now?
2. If you have another hard drive.
Unplug power cable from computer before doing anything inside of the computer. Unplug sata cable from hard drive. Unplug power cable from hard drive.
Plug the sata cable into the second hard drive. Plug the power cable into the second hard drive. Plug the power cable back into the computer.
Boot up the computer and enter the bios. Does this hard drive show in the bios? If so then i would say that your original hard drive has gone bad.

The drive clicks when plugged in but nothing shows up on the computer.. nor does it seem to light up..


do you have a hard drive and cd in the computer already? if so the drive probably wants to be recognized as either a master or slave in a slot that is already taken by an internal component. you will have to change the jumpers on the internal device or unplug it then turn your computer on and then plug the usb drive in. also are you using a 2.0 usb port? it's not the only kind even though they look alike.

When we turn on dvr it says the hard drive not format we have done all whatit has said in book turning it of at mains ect but nothing is working


Its verylikely that you may need to replavce the harddrive on your unit, what you can do is unplug the hard drive from the unit internally, marking where the plug came from so you plug it back in, if the dvd player starts up ok after removing the hard drive, then the hard drive is your problem. I hope this helps. Good Luck.

My unit is plugged in but dead and cold, no power. Adapter plug is warm. Power outlet is operational. Any thoughts?


Check the output of the adapter plug, it may be warm and functional, but the output connecter may have no output due to an internal break in the wires, usually in the area of the molded strain relief. Some times if you wiggle the wire where the adpater plugs into the device, you will see intermittant operation power. This will indicate either there is a break in the adapter wire or the connector internal to the device is making a poor internal connection. The internal connector may have come loose inside the device as a result of the wear and tear of plugging and unplugging into it. Sometimes these connectors can simply be resoldered and reinforced with a dab of silicone.

try to connect it to other computer, if it doesn't help, hdd is probably broken. If you disassemble, you will find internal hard drive, which you can try to connect to desktop PC to save your data, or look up for some data recovery company
