USB connector Hard Disk faulty


Usually you wont be able to change the USB-connector (problem 1: where to get an identical connector; problem 2: how to solder it without damaging something else). :-((
If you have important data on it, the best would be to take the hard drive out of the case and buy a USB-adapter for it (PATA or SATA as needed). With that you can access your data and copy them to something else - maybe a new external hard-drive.

My external hard drive was damaged i wont recovery from hard drive.


Depending on the severity of the damage you have a couple of options.

1) Put the HDD inside a airtight bag and place in a freezer for at least 4 hours. Remove the HDD from freezer and see if it works. If it does start to work you will have a limited amount of time to recover the data.

2) Pay Data recovery company to recover the data

My external hard drive quit working. The light on


Its is normally tough to make external hard drive work after they stop working. Mostly you wont be able to retrieve the data. You might need to go to a specialist for that and it would cost you some bucks.

I restored my computer and i saved all my data in my one touch 4 mini hard drive. Now my computer wont read one touch 4 mini 250gb. can some one please help me i lost everything?


No, you haven't lost anything. When you restored your software, you only restored the factory stuff. You'll need to reinstall the driver for the external hard drive. After you do that, your external drive and data should be accessible.

Hi i got a buffalo tb external hardrive and the pc wont recognise it now after i transfered alot of data when the pc froze and i had to turn pc off mid transfer . please can you help


It is probable that since the transfer did not complete, the data on the external drive will be corrupt.

Uninstall the external drive then reinstall and format the ext drive.

You should then be able to begin the data transfer process again.

It just sounds like bad luck that your pc froze mid transfer.
When you try again, do not use the pc for any other uses until the transfer has completed.

Regards and let me know if this works for you.

My digital western external hardrive wont switch on..please help!


warrenty will be void if you open the casing
but warrenty for hdd will remain .. so if under warrenty get it replaced, as it is, if data required the warrenty should not be concidered and data recovered, probably the hard drive may not have got damaged , so dont get fooled if some one says data recovery . if you cannot do it hire an expert guru for data recovery.
