Hi , i have a 500gb hardrive i bought a few months ago, full of family memorys and although it powers up the computer has stopped or failed to regonise the hard drive , pleaser can you help .im desperate

Replace the cable you are currently using with your printer cable and see if it is the cable if that is not the case I would open the case, and check your connections on the hard drive, there is a chance it might have come loose.

Have you configured the two disk-drives to "mirror" each other, i.e., write every block of data to both disk-drives? If so, then one of the two disk-drives has "failed" -- it is not recording the data,
and all your data is _only_ available from the _one_ disk-drive. So, you need to identify which of the two disk-drives has failed, and you need to buy a replacement disk-drive. Then, use the "mirroring" software to copy everything from the "good" disk-drive to the "new" disk-drive, to re-establish the "mirroring". Do this before your _second_ disk-drive _also_ fails!

My computer will not recognize the external hard drive. i have connected to the laptop using a usb cable and fire wire cable with the same results.

There are a couple of issues that are common with all external drives.

1) Check if the drive has been listed in the disk manager. It could have lost the partition table (formating and other data) information (do not attempt to repartition or reformat until additional tests are done if you have data on it) For Windows OS versions, open the Control Panel, choose System and Security (Win7), then Administrative Tools, Computer Managment and the Disk Management under Storage. If it has lost the critical information, use data recovery software to reclaim your data.

2) The cables have come loose inside the enclosure. If it is out of warranty, open the enclosure and check. These connect the board of the enclosure to the drive. (There are both power and data cables if the drive is a 3.5" drive (IDE or SATA), 2.5" IDE drives combine both.)

3) The enclosure's hardware has failed. Remove the drive and try to connect it in another enclosure (match for disc size and type of data connector), a USB/IDE/SATA bare drive connector, a hard drive dock (SATA) or by putting it into a desktop with an available IDE or SATA connection. Make sure to use it as a slave drive for IDE. Can you read the drive? Then the enclosure is bad.

4) If not, then the drive itself has failed. For a do-it-yourself attempt to get the data off the drive, wrap it well in plastic and place in the freezer for a few days. Try one of the steps in 3 to read the drive and, if the computer reads the drive, copy the data to another drive or optical media. Professional data recovery sites can do more if your data is critical.

Please note that if the drive is under warranty, warranty repairs will not include preserving your data. Opening the enclosure to get the data may void the warranty.

I hope this helps.

Says no hard drive devices found

Is it a "new" drive, or a drive that you have been using for a long time, i.e., it could have failed.

Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power-cord.
Check that the "data" cable between the SATA drive and the motherboard is tightly connected at both ends.
Check that the "power" cable into the SATA drive is tightly connected.
Restart your computer, and enter BIOS SETUP.
Be sure that the BIOS-search for SATA devices is "enabled".

ServerRAID-6i Logical drv =1, Others=0 Firmware7.12.13,Status OK Warning:1 Logical drive(s) Offline Warning:1 Online drive(s) defunct

HI, It appears you may have a failed "physical" drive in your Raid set on the server. The system will run fine with one failed drive, but it is recommended to have the drive replaced by it's vendor, or vendor representative. If the 2nd drive in your raid set fails. You will loose your logical drive and all your data on this drive.
You may wish to confirm you have successful, recent backups, just in case another disk fails before your failed drive has been replaced.

My 1 terrabyte Mybook drive says it needs the raid installed. It doesn't have a raid. It's not working and It's been my disk for my mac time machine backup. Can you get it working again? Here's the...

It sounds like this drive is configured with two drives running RAID 1 (mirroring). If one of the drives inside the case has been removed or has failed, it needs to be replaced with an identical drive so it can resume mirroring.

Raid 1 requires two had drives. Both drives are kept absolutely identical so that if one fails, the other continues to serve your files, but you will get a message like the one you have reported to let you know that a drive is missing or has failed.

If you look in the case and there is only one drive, but a place for a second, then someone has removed the drive.

If you look in the case and there are two drives, then the drive identified as Drive B has failed or has become disconnected, try re-seating the drive and check any cables or power connections. If it begins to work then, you may have solved the problem, otherwise you will need to get an identical drive and put it into the case. The raid controller will automatically identify that a new drive has been installed, then it will partition and format that drive automatically and resume the mirroring process.

RAID 0 Array disappeared after reboot

I would try the hard drive on another sata controller/port to verify that the bad drive is in fact bad. If it is really bad, then no there is nothing you can do but replace the drive and recreate the array (losing all data!).

You can not 'recover' a failed RAID-0 array because there is no parity or mirror data on an extra disk like there is with the other RAID modes. This is why people recommend against using RAID-0 for important data (unless you take frequent backups): RAID-0 actually increases your likelihood of losing your data. Statistically speaking, you are multiply the failure rates of each individual drive together.
