I can't open my buffalo drive


Hello fradymg,
If you are speaking about a hard disk drive built within the last 20 years, then the hard drive is not meant to be opened.
(Way back in 1975 I worked on hard disk drives that could be repaired or adjusted by a qualified technician).
I have three suggestions:
(1) I presume the drive is already out of the computer.
  • Buy a new hard disk from a local computer shop.
  • Install the new one.
  • Connect the data cable.
  • Connect the power cable.
  • Switch on the PC;
  • Insert your Operating system CD and re-install the OP system.
(2) If the data on the drive is *very, very* important:
Take your drive to a good computer shop and they will attempt to recover the data.
Note: this is generally VERY expensive.
(3) Take your computer to the computer shop and have the technician install the new hard disk and also the operating system.
This option will give you a working computer in the shortest delay, at only medium cost.
Hope this helps.

Hi, Maxtor 90645D3 hardrive deletion manual jumpersettings.


Basic jumper settings for Maxtor ATA Hard Drives

Thank you for purchasing your new ATA hard drive from Other World Computing! Please

review these jumper settings prior to installing your new hard drive into your computer.

You may want to review more detailed information about the installation process, or

the location and configuration of your existing internal ATA drive before proceeding.

Your manual that came with your computer can be of assistance in both of these

determinations.

A few notes about installing an ATA hard drive into your existing system:

Your existing drive is normally configured one of two ways, Master (single drive), or

Cable Select. You will want to determine this before installing your new drive, the easiest

way is to remove the existing drive from your system and visually inspect it's hard drive

jumpers. Most hard drives have a schematic either silk screened onto the case of the

drive, or the schematic is on a label near the jumper pins. If you have difficulty locating

this information, visit the hard drive manufacturer's website.

If your existing hard drive is configured as "Master", then set your new hard drive

to "Slave". If your existing drive is set for "Cable Select", then set your new drive to

"Cable Select" also. You can change the existing jumper settings on the original drive

to suit your needs, but we recommend following these instructions first to verify proper

operation of the new hard drive.

Installing jumpers on the new drive is a simple process, follow the schematic to

configure your drive.

Please note the configuration of

the internal ATA cable already

installed in your existing system.

If your internal cable is configured

differently than pictured here,

you may want to replace it before

installing a new hard drive to

achieve maximum performance.

The computer does not recognise the hard drive through USB port.


The "click" is a sign that the disk-drive is malfunctioning.
If it still is under warranty, exercise the warranty, and get it fixed/replaced.

Otherwise, open it up, remove the disk-drive, and take it to a computer-store, and ask them to sell you something compatible.
Install the new drive into your casing.

I have a lacie design by F.A. Porsche 250Gig Hard drive - It has failed and is making a buzzing sound follwed by a beep - is this repairable?


Sounds like the hard drive in the Lacie has fauled.
To test the hard drive, remove it and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If it deosn't detect it as an external drive and you connot open folders and files then it is faulty.
You can install a new hard drive in the Lacie and then format in FAT32.

Drive only makes a clicking sound, computer does not see drive.


A hard drive that makes a clicking noise is definitely faulty. If you want to retrieve data from this hard drive there are companies that can pull apart the drive to recover the data. This is specialized work and it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.
You can buy a new hard drive and install it in the case to have a working USB hard drive again.

sounds like a faulty hard drive mate, if you download this software http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/seatools/ and run it, it will install hard drive test software onto a floppy disk for you to test the drive from boot,

How to install a new seagate hard drive?


I have one thats ide ultra, & my computers see it as a disc drive, like a cd drive when i put it in an external seagate case. but when i put it in as an internal it shows up in cmos w/ 320 g space, & no matter which pin config i use it doesnt show when the os is booted.
