Hi welcome to Fixya, there are more than one reasons why the hard drive cannot be access. First you should make sure the hard drive is properly connected, if the problem still exist you should take the hard drive out of the computer and put in into another computer that you know is working. If the computer boot that mean it is the connection in your computer is faulty. If is does not boot that mean the hard drive if faulty and should be replace. Thank you

I cant access my external hard drive


Either the hard disk has become corrupt or the OS that was installed is not being recognised now. Try making it slave or secondary and see if the pc is able to detect it then recover the data that you want to save else format it.

Kingston pend drive cant open


If you are using Sandisk USB Drives, it may be that partition is password protected. If you can run the U3 Launchpad, it should prompt you for a password for you to access your "Drive F". Put in your password, and Drive F should be accessible.

HELP! My ps2 cant detect hard drive!


DGR8njct, Get a USB 2.0 to SATA/IDE/2.5/3.5 Hard Drive Adapter Cable . This will allow you to access the Hard Drive from a computer USB port. It doesn't sound good for you. If you do not want to get an adapter like I suggest, you can install the hard drive in a computer as a slave drive, and see if you can access the data. www.playstationclinic.com
