Question about Maxtor OneTouch 4 500GB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive
External hard drive please helpmalfunctioned when last used,now when it is connected to my p.c it is not recognised, can you
Well if the Ext. HDD is making any kind of noise like spinning up
and spinning down , or a clicking sound the unit may possibly
never run again , if the unit does boot but is not recognized by
your computer try troubleshooting start first with the power outlet
then the power cord then the data cord , make sure its running
when your computer is turned on , there is only one connection
from an Ext. HDD to the computer and that's its data cord , if its
a 3.5 HDD install it into a PC as a slave to try to recover the data
and never for any circumstances place an OS on your static Ext.
HDD , if your HDD never turns on again there are many services
online who specialize in HDD data recovery , if you attempt it
yourself you'll need a pretty close match HDD , a very clean
room a pair of non-powder latex gloves and some tiny Torx
head drivers , a clicking sound is the pick up heads , a spinning
up and down sound is the motor , if the unit needs to be formatted again you will loose the data that is stored on it
sorry I can only help so much , and troubleshooting is always
the best bet , try taking the enclosure case apart and make sure
everything is connected .
