I've got a samsung m3 portable that has suddenly stopped being recognised


it is not uncommon for external hard drive enclosures to fail. If its not working on multiple computers, this is probably the case. try it in 1 more computer and if it still doesn't work, I would do the following:
1. Open the enclosure to expose the actual Hard Drive and obtain the model number and note the size. if its a laptop hdd, its 2.5". if its a full size hdd like in a desktop pc, its 3.5". the enclosure may be screwed together but likely snaps together.
2. Google the model # to determine the interface and speed (likely SATA 3.0gb/s but could be SATA 6.0gb/s
3. Go to Newegg.com or Amazon.com and buy a new external hard drive enclosure ($5-$35) with the same interface, speed, and size as your hdd (use the filters on the left to narrow your search)

4. Put your hdd in the new enclosure and check if its working.

you have to "stop" external drives under "safely remove hardware" or they can possibly be damaged. if the data is very important, it *may" ber possible to take the hard drive out of the case, and install it in a new hard drive case. this might work, depending upon the type of hard drive. they doi sell external hard drive kitxs in stores, but you have to know if it is a PATA or SATA hard drive. SATA is the newest, and likely any external drive from the past 2 years will be SATA.

Hi there My external WD hard drive has been working iintermittently for the last year but now I can't even turn it on. I got it turned on yesterday but my pc won't recognise it Any solutions? John


One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
hope this helps

My hard disk is western digital 500GB sata blue caviar 16MB 7200RPM .... it stopped working toady with no reason, it was working fine yesterday night, when i wake up today i found its not working any more...


> stopped working toady (froggy? today?)

It "died" -- either the electronic circuit-board "under" the "spinning" part of the disk-drive has short-circuited, or the motor that spins the recording surfaces has quit.

You've tried it on another computer -- so you've done all that you can.

Any 500GB disk-drive is likely to still be under the W.D. warranty.
Open the enclosure, and get the model-number and serial-number from the label on the disk-drive.
Then, access the W.D. web-site, and click "check warranty status", and enter that information.
If the warranty is valid, W.D. will replace the device, at minimal cost to you.

If the warranty has expired, W.D. has a "Customer Loyalty" program -- purchase a new W.D. device from the W.D. web-site, and you qualify for a good discount on your purchase.

Or, remove the disk-drive from the enclosure, buy a replacement, compatible, disk-drive, and "transplant" it into the enclosure, to create a working external storage device.

Had a power outage yesterday and today the vostro turns on but when it attempts to read the hard drive it just shuts down. Have replaced the battery no luck have swapped the harddrive to another vostro...


Well it sounds like the IDE or SATA controller got fried. This means most like the board is now no good. Laptop boards are around $285 not worth replacing because the labor runs around the same.

Usb devise not recognised


You probably damaged the drive from sudden disconnection of the signal line. I would suggest trying it on one other computer before considering it trashed.

Trekstor Storage device


I have an answer on how to fix the Trekstor Datastation "Removable Disk" problem.

I also own a Trekstor Datastation 500GB and had the same problem even though it worked for several months then all of a sudden when I tried to hook it up to another computer, it stopped working. It would recognize the USB connection but you could not read the drive as it would say "Removable Disk".

In "Device Manager" it recognizes the drive as Sundata USB2SATA. But what it really should be is "WDC WD50 00AAVS-32ZTB0 USB Device" or something similar to that. For those that are wondering, yes, the hard drive is a Western Digital Hard Drive. Western Digital Caviar to be exact.

Solution: You need to open the cover to the hard drive and reconnect the hard drive to the connector on the board. It's that simple!

It is very loose and this model is not well designed so it can easily come off if you accidentally knock over your hard drive or move it to another location. The hard drive is held in place by screws on a holder where there is room for the screws to slide if the screws are not tight enough.

You'll need a T10 screwdriver bit to remove the cover and a Phillips screwdriver to adjust the hard drive.

NOTE: Doing this will probably voids your warranty but trust me, it works and it's really easy and quick to do. Took me 15 minutes.

Computer fails to recognise my external hard drive


I would suggest the external casing of the harddisk that contains its power supply is busted, so you need to change the casing or remive the harddisk from the casing and connect in inside
