Question about Toshiba 120GB USB 2.0 Portable External 120 GB Hard Drive
I bought my external Toshiba hard drive (160 GB) a few months ago, and it has been working fine until recently. I started receiving error messages saying "delayed writing error, windows could not save the files on this hard drive". I opened my drive from 'my computer' and found all my data deleted. I restarted my computer and after restarting, my computer is refusing to detect my hard drive, saying "unknown device". Is there any way to fix this problem?
if the datas aleady deleted, then you have nothing to lose. Right ?
What you need is a 2.5 to 3.5 inch IDE ribbon cable connector.
this will enable you to put the drive into an IDE slot on the PC internal motherboard ( primary/secondary )
Unless it,s already 3.5"
boot the computer, see if it recognises the drive. And format it.
then you may be able, to re-fit back into the external casing, and use as an external again.
