CAUM37500 CAVALRY HARD DRIVE NOT GETTING DETECTED

Hi, My hard drive fell down from my bed when we are using it via my laptop. The power card got disconnected. When i tried to reconnect it, the hard drive is not getting detected by the PC. i tried it on some other pc but its not getting detected. I can see that the power is getting on but i am not sure why its not getting detected. It used to be automatically detected when i connect to any PC. Please help us in this regard. Its a new hard drive bought 1 month back.

Regards,
Satya.

Head crashed is the most likely reason.
drive has lost its directory and boot segment address.
you have lost your drive functionality.
the drive would need to be much larger than average to bother fixing, but if you need the data, then you can send it in for repair. expect 500 to 2500 for data recovery/repair.
sorry for the news.

Hard Disk not found


If it fell down, you changed hard disk and still get message "Herd Disk Not Found", probably you've got a problem in your Motherboard.. Take it ro a repair technician
Hope you still have old hard disk. Check it as external disk on some other computer, maybe it's good!.

External hard disk not opened,how i can open?


Opening the drive on the computer or physically opening the drive enclosure box? 500GB is so small it's not worth spending too much time on getting it working.

1. This could be due to several things.
a. The power supply for the external drive is not working properly
b. A broken power supply connector.
c. The USB drive was disconnected improperly > that is not disconnected safely in Windows
d. The external drive controller in the USB case is defective. A new case is needed.

External hard drive will not power on


The adapter case could be faulty but the hard drive may be OK.
Remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter. Then plug the adapter into a working computer's USB port and if this computer sees it as an external hard drive and you can open the folders and files, then the hard drive is OK and you only need to buy a new USB hard drive adapter case.
If the hard drive is faulty, and the data is very important to you, there are companies that can retrieve data from faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

My Cavalry hard disk fell off from a couple of feet and now when i connect to the sys and power it on, it starts giving a wierd sound ..but the computer wont recognise the device.. is there a way to...


It does sound like you have the "click of death"

You could try remove the drive from its enclosure and connect it direct to a computer. If however it still clicks ticks or whines badly the it is probably toast.

You can however buy just a drive and put it in the enclosure. then maybe use crazy glue to hold it down.

A far as recovery goes then if it does not work on your computer directly then the other options is very expensive data recovery services

Maxtor Basics external portable hard drive not getting detected


Right Click on My Computer, click on Manage, go to Disk Managment, if the drive is available you will see it there. Check to see if it has a drive letter assigned to it, if not right click on it and choose Change Drive letters. Make sure you are on the external drive though, you don't want to change your C drive accidentally. It should pop up in My Computer.

Hard Drive not visible on my laptop


Did you mean power chord , or power SUPPLY , if you ment power supply that answers the question
because a different power supply could cause dammage if it doesn't meet the exact power requirements.

and also would explain why your drive is now not recognised.
