Question about Computers & Internet
My daugher connected my precious Screen Play Iomega 1TB to her dying laptop to try to copy some photos. She didn't manage to do it as the disc started to go on and on and was not recognized. She gave up and now, when I connect it to the TV it says ''HD Fatal Error'' and stops working. The blue light never appeared again. Just some inside growling when I power up and then nothing. Is there a solution for this? Please??
There's really not much to troubleshoot other than reseating all connections and recycling power. Are you connecting this drive via usb cable? It's rare but it's possible for a cable itself to go bad or the usb port on the pc/laptop.
Once you rule out those things, then you can say the hd is bad.
If it's still under warranty, get in touch with the vendor for a replacement. It would cost around $1000 to $2000 for data recovery so if it's worth that to you, I'd recommend either Ontrak or Cherry Systems. Both are good companies.
