Re: kerupe

Sure first I need a few questions that have to be answered! This is an easy one! I need to know if we are working with Laptop or desktop? That makes a world of difference, as long as the drive works you can get the data, it is when the drive does not respond you cannot get the info, this procedure is costly.

But if you have a desktop or even a laptop it can be done you may just have to purchase a few things if it is a laptop because a laptop only has room for one HD, a desktop has room for to which will allow you to slave out the drive. When you slave out the hard drive it allows the CPU to be bypassed, it will read the drive as storage only. A few things need to be done in order to have this occur! You must pull the jumper off of the old drive the one you are trying to transfer information. This will keep conflict from the new one reading or trying to be the master.
Try placing the new HD into your PC removing the plasic cap off of the back of the HD. Place the HD into the desktop the same way the new one is. You should have a power connection and a peripheral cable that connects the HD. Once your remove that black plastic cap off of the old drive and place it into your machine with everything powered off and uplugged of course. When booted up it will recognize the drive as a slave drive. You can then extract any photos or files from that drive, by dragging them into any folder you wish! If you need a walkthrough just drop me a line. It is pretty simple. Most places do not like doing the work because it is time consuming. It is very simple, he could have burned your files to a CD or DVD. Would have been less the headache!

Whenever i open my laptop it says failure predicated on hard drive hitachi 541612j9sa00(s1).what should i do now?

You should take the computer to a computer repair shop and they might be able to backup any important data from it if you have not backed up. If you have backed up then you may want to purchase a new hard drive, again your local computer repair shop can help you with this and replace your old drive and reinstall your operating system and then your backup data(if applicable).
Good Luck.

I have a hard drive with all my pictures on it and my computer not reading the hard drive when it plug in how can i send it in to get it fix it a smartdisk 160gb

Always try the simple first- connect the drive to a different computer, then if that does not work, try a new cable to the old computer then to the different computer. If still No Go, many local big box retail stores like Best Buy have a computer repair desk. Be prepared for $$ charge, however.

WD portable HD light is on when plug in to USB port. Computer fails to recognize the device. Serial Number: WXE507155627 Model Number: WDXMS1600TN


There are a few reasons this would happen, The options are a faulty driver in your PC, a failed circuit board in the enclosure or a failed circuit in the drive itself.

First try the drive on a different PC and see if it works. If it does reply back and we can look into the failed driver. If it doesn't then take it to your local PC shop and have the technicians move the hard drive into a new enclosure.

If it works in the new enclosure buy the enclosure and your on the way. If it doesn't, then the hard drive itself is the problem. If that is the case you will need the help of a data recovery pro to retrieve your data. If this is the case reply with your location(Country, State and City) and I will assist you in finding a reputable pro to assist you.

Hope this helps FixYa,

My laptop is broken and i need to retrieve my photo albums. how can i do this

You will need to have someone pull the hard drive out of the laptop and extract the data from it. Chances are the data is still fine and can be retrieved. Your best bet is to find a local mom and pop type shop that can do this for you.

USB IOGEAR not recognise

Most portable HDDs show up without drivers being required, so, assuming other drives or USB devices show up the general assumption is that either the circuit board in the enclosure has failed or the HDD has failed.

Assuming it doesn't work on other PCs and that other USB devices do, take the external drive to your local computer shop and ask to have the drive tested and moved into a new enclosure. If the drive is OK then the people at the computer store can simply transfer the drive into a new enclosure and it will work. If it fails testing you will likely need to send the drive to a Pro, I would recommend Armor-IT Data Recovery(listed in the FixYa directory).

You can swap the enclosures yourself if you have basic hand tools and are feeling handy but it might be nice to have the techs at the local shop test the drive.

If you need any further instructions add a comment on this post and included the make and model# of the failed external drive and I will offer further assistance.

Hope this Helps FixYa,

Flashing LED light but not working

Unfortuntly, this caused the drives power source to be exceded and damage the drive or circut board. If you know someone that knows computer well, have them or yourself take the hard drive out and manually connect the driver to a computer and extract your data, if the drive is not damage that is, there is know way to know for sure until you try to connect to a PC directly. Or, purchas another USB external housing.

Try checking your power cord adapter.
I found the same problem was with the cord.
Luckily, I had another Acomdata HD cord to check the problem.
