Well do you have the receipt of the Hard Drive? and does it cover the warranty period? if it does, go send the device back to the store where you've purchased it and have a replacement or refund.

I have one hitachi deskstar 1 tb hdd it has important data, and its not detecting is there any way i can get back those data. please hepl

There are some tests that can help you determine the gravity of the problem, or at least the cost of getting the data back.

- First, try on an other computer where you are sure that the USB ports are correctly working.
- An other option is to try on the same computer but with an other USB disk.

If nothing happen, this is likely that either
1. The USB adapter or the power supply from the external drive is dead.
2. The electronic part of the disk is dead.
3. The mechanical part of the disk is dead.

To eliminate the reason 1 from being the problem, remove the disk from the box, this is probably an SATA disk or eventually an IDE disk. You can connect the disk directly in your computer, or if you're not comfortable with that, you can buy an external adapter like this one :

You can also check if you hear the disk spinning up when you power the box in a silent room. This is likely to eliminate the reason nr 3.

If only the reason nr 2 remains, you can try to find on ebay or other online reseller the EXACT same model of disk by looking the product nr and/or model nr on the disk itself, and replace the electronic board. ( there are some small torx screws and connectors... should be easy.) This should cost you between 100€ and 200€.

The very last chance, also the most expensive, is to contact a specialized hard disk recovery service. This is the easiest as they will do the same procedure as described, but they will go far more in detail, and could go up to replace mechanical parts.. You must count between 400€ and 800€ to get back your data.

Hope it's clear.

It beeps and computer does not reconise it

Check the warranty-status. If the warranty still is valid, then Hitachi will replace the disk-drive, at minimal cost to you.

If not, then disassemble the enclosure, remove the old disk-drive, buy a new compatible disk-drive, and connect it, to "reconstitute" your external storage-device.

Hitachi 80 GB. USB HDD problam.

If you plug it in and it does not appear, it may be choosing the wrong drive letter.
If that drive letter is already in use it will not appear.

Open the start menu, right click on my computer, then choose manage.
Select (on the left) Disk Management.

If it appears in there.
Find the thumbdrive in the list and right-click and choose 'Assign a new drive letter' . Make it like M or somthing far down in the alphabet.

If that does not appear under the disk management then the disk might be physically damaged.

An urban myth (which does sometimes work) includes putting the drive in the freezer for a day or so.

Also remember it might be somthing as simple as a bad cable or port on the computer. Try to access it with a new cable from a diffrent computer.
