My samsung G2 cant read, it ask to be formatted but it cant be completed n propreties shows 0 used space, 0 free space


Most likely the hd is bad. If you want to know for sure purchase a usb enclosure, break open your drive case and put the hd in the enclosure. That will tell you if it's the hd or the circuitry of your case.

I have a Western Digital external hard drive. It just sits there and suddenly I cannot find it in Windows Explorer. It does show up under Device Manager, and I have uninstalled/reinstalled the drivers,...


Welcome to Fixya

Try to plug it in to a different computer. If you are getting the same thing using a different computer then its gonna be the enclosure or the HD is having the problem. One way to check is to use an extra HD and put it inside the enclosure. If the enclosure was able to detect the new HD then its gonna be you HD that is having the problem. If enclosure still cant detect the HD then the problem is the enclosure.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Fixya!

When i plug it in to usb drive blue light flashes only once but it is not shown on my list of devices on my pc and i cant veiw photos on it


The power supply on the drive has failed. What you can do is take it out of the enclosure and put it in a new hard drive enclosure. I had the same exact problem one time. I took the drive out of the enclosure and intalled it in my computer tower.

Why i cant format my seagate 500gb potable hard drive, when format it in quick format its show an error that the hard drive not successfully formatted. what should i do? please help me, i need it asap....


The disk-drive inside the enclosure is "dying".
If the warranty still is valid, exercise the warranty to get it replaced, at minimal cost to you.
If the warranty has expired, open the enclosure, remove the disk-drive, and take the disk-drive to a computer-store. Buy a new, compatible, drive, and then "transplant" it into the enclosure, to "revive" your external file-storage appliance.

Cant access files on my harddrive


Hello,

It sounds like either the enclosure or the drive inside has failed.

If the enclosure has failed and you don't have any crucial files on it that you don't already have elsewhere, contact Maxtor(Seagate) for a warranty replacement.

If the enclosure has failed and you DO have important files on it, try having your local PC shop move the hard drive into a new enclosure, if that works you're done, buy the new enclosure.

If the new enclosure fails, your drive is damaged and you will need a pro to help get back your files. If this is the case, reply back with you location(Country, State and City) and I will pass along recommendations for your neck of the woods.

Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris

Vista stops recognizing external hard drive


This doesn't sound like an OS issue. This appears to be more an issue of the connection to the hard drive. The USB cable likely isn't the culprit, nor the laptop USB inputs. If the drive was ever dropped or the cable gets removed and reattached often to the actual enclosure, you might be looking at a bad port on the enclosure. This isnt a lost cause. You can always buy a hard drive enclosure from newegg and move the drive from the IOMEGA to the new enclosure. You can get a new enclosure for $15. Just because the USB port is bad, it doesnt mean the data is gone and the hard drive cant be used.

Driver software for3.5inch IDE , Black by Eforcity (POTHIDEX3501) IDE / EIDE HDD Encolsure


No drivers should be required for standard enclosures.

You should check that you are only using the cable that came with it to connect to the computer (not one that fits the same)
It MUST be plugged into a usb 2.0 port NOT a usb1.x
You should not plug it into a usb hub
It must have it's own power supply for any 3.5" enclosure

Also make sure your motherboard drivers are up to date and that there are no exclamation marks by any hardware in the hardware tab from system.

Where


There are a variety of things that can malfunction on your external hard drive:
1) The USB cable - Have you tried switching the USB cable?
2) The external hard drive casing
3)  The hard drive itself
If your hard drive casing has malfunctioned, then retrieving your data is as simple as putting the hard drive inside another hard drive enclosure.  Hard drive enclosures are available at any local computer store, and also available by going to our website at www.iomagic.com and clicking on Drive Enclosure.  Make sure to get the right size enclosure.  The I250HD35 has a 3.5" Hard Drive inside it, which is a standard desktop hard drive.

If you put your hard drive in another enclosure and it still won't show up on any of your computers, then your best bet at retrieving your data is to contact a data recovery specialist.   After you have retrieved your data, we will replace your unit if you are still within your warranty period. For specific warranty and replacement information, go to www.iomagic.com and click on Support.
Have a nice day,

Western Digital 120 GB Hard Drive


Well usually external hard drives are just a regular hard drive in an encolsure! You can try to mount the hard drive to a regular pc using the ide/sata connector(Im not real sure which interface your drive will use). From there you can tell wether its the actual drive that is giving trouble or just the USB enclosure! Most of the times with those name brand external drives its a lil complicated to figure out how to take it apart to take out the hard drive. What you can also do is try(if you get it open) to see if you can unplug the hard drive from the enclosure then power on the enclosure and see if the lights come up green(or whatever color it uses to indicate ready)! if it does then power off the enclosure then re-connect the drive to the enclosure and power on again! Maybe that works! Removing the drive might void your warranty, proceed at your own risk! Good Luck regards, babb
