Try connecting it to a different computer.
It that does not work, you need to Google-search for a "Data Recovery Service" -- for a _large_ fee, they will repair the external unit, just long enough to "rescue" your data files, and burn CDs/DVDs containing your data.

Portable hard drive says its write protected


Have you set the "Ownership" or "File Permission" of your portable hard drive? Most of the time, this approach should work for you.

You might also need to tweak your registry. Link below will allow you to Enable Read-Write access to your USB storage devices.

Download and import this registry file, then restart your computer for it to take effect.
USB_Enable_Read-Write.reg

The usb connecter on my 500gb portable hard drive has snapped off the board. Can this be repaired or is there another way to recover my data that was stored on the hard drive?


unless you can access your 500gb portable hard drive you wont be able to recover any data you have on it
is the connector on the hard drive or the motherboard
if you have more than one usb out put you might be able to connect your portable hard drive
if you have any spare sockets on your motherboard
or you could get usb 2 or 3 card they are cheap and easy to install you can buy these on Ebay very cheap

if you need more help with this or if i have misunderstood the problem post a reply
hope this helps

If some of the files came from music services like iTunes or a Windows Media store, they will be in formats other than MP3 and will not be visible on an MP3 playing device.

Are they surely all MP3 files?

Sounds like a driver issue with your hard drive. If you have the software that came with the hard drive you may be able to reinstall the drivers. Or, alternatively, look up the hard drive online and download the drivers from Samsung's website.

I'm trying to install MAC OS 10.6.6, but it keeps on failing. It says it can't install. The new internal harddrive is a Samsung Hm500jj 500gb,harddrive. Please help?


Be sure to use the OS installation disks that came with your system initially.
  1. You want to insert the CD or DVD that came with your computer
  2. When you get to the first screen, look for the Utility dropdown menu at the top
  3. Select erase and target the new Hard Drive
  4. Select HFS+ as the file system and check the box for OS 9 drivers if you need them
  5. Wait for a few seconds while the new drive is formatted
  6. Then select this disk for installation in the wizard and install the Operating System

Why i cant format my seagate 500gb potable hard drive, when format it in quick format its show an error that the hard drive not successfully formatted. what should i do? please help me, i need it asap....


The disk-drive inside the enclosure is "dying".
If the warranty still is valid, exercise the warranty to get it replaced, at minimal cost to you.
If the warranty has expired, open the enclosure, remove the disk-drive, and take the disk-drive to a computer-store. Buy a new, compatible, drive, and then "transplant" it into the enclosure, to "revive" your external file-storage appliance.
