I/O Magic Giga Bank 4GB portable drive crash

I cannot access my I/O Magic Giga Bank 4GB portable drive with my USB 2.0 connection. The blue light blinks and the drive gets very warm and no access or recognition. I have data that I would like to recover. Is there anything I can do to recover the data or do I have to send it out to a specialist in recovery of hard drives? Bgong

Have a Samsung G2 640GB external hard drive, have been using it fine. Just out of the blue when I wanted to access the data on it the PC (XP OS) told me it was not formatted and would I like to format it...

You might try plugging it into another USB port, then go into the control panel / administrative tools / Computer Management. If you see the Disk Name / Drive Letter in there, try right clicking it and selecting Properties from the menu. Click the Tools tab and press the button for check disk for errors. Make sure the check box is selected that says Automatically Fix File System Errors. Press ok and let it do its magic. If it finds any errors that could cause the drive to become unusable, it will attempt to fix it.
If you can't get that far, you might try plugging it into another computer if you have one. If that still doesn't work, you may have a failed device. It may be possible to recover the data on it but at a premium price with less then 40% chance of success. (It all depends if its a main board crash, head crash or physical damage to the platters)

My computer will not read my io magic giga bank 6 gb

Was your computer ever able to recognize your GigaBank, or is it new?

The most common problem people have with a new drive not showing up in My Computer are:

1) The drive is not formatted

2) The drive letter is mapped incorrectly

You can check both of these things in Disk Management by right-clicking on My Computer and choosing Manage, then clicking on Disk Management on the left hand side.

If your drive doesn't show up in Disk Management, and you are also unable to see the drive on multiple computers, then you may be experiencing a hardware malfunction.

If you are still within your warranty period and you are experiencing a hardware malfunction, we will be happy to replace your unit for you. Specific warranty and replacement information is available at, by clicking on Support.

Have a nice day,
