Buslink UII-250 not recognized any longer after fall

I was copying photos to the drive and during the copying , the drive fell off of the desk and disconnected from the computer. I reconnected but since the occurance, I haven't been able to see the drive on my computer. Hardware manager says it's unrecongizable and no driver is installed. I went to the website and downloaded the driver and executed the executable but still have no success. Any suggestions??

    I have a THREE hundred gb drive and it just went today setting on table. Never been dropped. Yours would have gone anyway. I know someone else who had same problem. It seems to be the BUSLINLK name.

I suggest that your hard drive is comatose, from a severe office concussion. Take it to the emergency computer service dude nearby, and hope, cross your fingers, that the data is recoverable.

COMPUTER NO LONGER RECOGNIZES IT. WHAT IS THE EXTERNAL DC VOLTAGE ? BUSLINK 3 1/2 FLOPPY EXTERNAL DRIVE FDD1 SER.# 1Q3B O6281 PC SAYS DRIVERS ARE OK


Hi there,
I recommend that you upgrade to a newer technology. The flash drives and other usb CD/DVD drives are newer and "plug and play" without much hassles. ....besides they carry more in terms of storage. Slightly more expensive, but less trouble.

Kind Regards

Dropped WD My Book 500GB


Sounds like the end. One thing I've tried, with some limited success, is to put the drive in a freezer for several hours. I've had the drives work for a little while; longer if I wrapped them in ice packs. This worked on drives that were working and stopped; I don't know about one that was dropped. Doesn't cost anything; worth a try. One thing; if it does work, get the files off right away. It never works for long.

MyBook Fell Over, Now Not Showing As A Drive Letter


Well if your drive is 6 months old you might have a warranty of 1 year. You can make an online RMA request and tell them the drive doesn't work anymore. You don't have to say you dropped it. Just say it's heavily used and you can almost not live without.

But on the other hand if you tell the truth and want it fixed they can be reasonable and repair it for free. From my work and my private experience with WD they have good service. We sent alot of hdd's as RMA. For them is also good commercial if you tell other people about their service.

good luck. Just try to make a RMA. Nice drive by the way.
