You're best bet is to extract the hard drive from the enclosure. Get a SATA to USB adapter (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA1PU0ME3070). Connect that to your PC. If the problem is not with the HDD you should be able to extract any data without any issues.

Sounds like hard drive failure to me.. if your computer doesn't detect the drive then it will be very difficult to retrieve the data back if its still under warranty I would try sending it back and see if they can recover the data if not if the data is important there are company's that will recover data but it comes at a price...

It was working fine and then I went to turn it on


If you're connecting a known-good power supply to the MyBook, and it's not turning on... I suspect that the MyBook has died. You should replace it or have it serviced. If the data on it is very important, it might be worth taking the drive apart and removing the hard drive inside and trying to recover data. If the data isn't important, I would say the MyBook is dead. Sorry.

External Hard Drive not Accessible after Windows Vista Update


Assuming that the external hdd is physically working fine, everything is pointing to a damaged boot sector.

You can get back most (if not all) your data stored in your external drive with the help of an application called: Pc Inspector File recovery.
Its a freeware.
Here is the link: http://pcinspector.de/Sites/file_recovery/download.htm?language=1#

Simply install it on your C:\ drive, and follow the prompts.
Please let us know the outcome.

Power connection, but no Data (Mac)


The first and simple thing to do is to try a different data cable and see if it works. If it doesn't work then may be it has crashed and you can probably recover it using a recover tool like Recoversoft Data data rescue Pc. Th trial version will let you determine whether you can recover or not. If the differnt cable thing wont work then let me know and i will walk you thru the data recovery process using Recoversoft Data data rescue Pc.

Drive Installation


Yes, you can just install your software and the drive but its best that you register immeidiately. They have decent customer service where they will replace you broken drive with a new one, if it dies...that happened to my first My Book Pro Edition drive...so be careful...if you are rich and can afford 1000 to have your lost data recovered, then fine. Im not rich and cant afford that so i lost ALL my data (500 gb) on my first drive. Because I registered it, I got a free drive four or five days later, if you have a credit card. Then i shipped them my old drive. Unfortunately, my new drive was fine for a year and died yesterday, again, ive lost ALL my data...consider making an additional backup of things you really NEED. Spending a 100 dollars just for that kind of back up is much cheaper than 1000 to recover the entire drive. Hope that helps. CJ Plourde

Cannot Access my data, even if my laptop detects the drive when plugged


you can try some data recovery software. You can see
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Asoftech-Data-Recovery/290956907592436?sk=info
It tells the steps how to perform data recovery.

If above does not work, you may have to format the hard drive (use quick format), and then use above mentioned software to scan again the hard drive and recover your files.
