You can try to open the enclosure and fit the drive into a pc, or buy a new enclosure to fit it in, they are quite cheap.
You can buy a caddy that you just push the bare drive into.

Usb external hard drive not detected


If you can hear the hard drive spinning you have a chance of recovering the data. The only program I have known to recover the data is `Easy Recovery Professional` Once the data is recovered you may be able to format the drive.

Asus pro31f series duoT2350 notebook does not boot up. Potential motherboard failure? How do I recover data?


A) Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.
B) Remove the Harddrive;

According to specifications it is a 100GB SATA harddrive.

Harddrives are measured across their width.
A laptop harddrive is 2.5 Inches across in width. (2 -1/2 inches)
Desktop harddrives are 3.5

Install the Asus Pro 31F harddrive in a 2.5 SATA external enclosure.
The external enclosure has a USB cable. Turns your laptop harddrive into an external harddrive.

One example of a 2.5 SATA external enclosure,

C) I believe what may be going on, is you have a failed Power MOSFET, or Power MOSFET's.

?O_O?

MOSFET,

Power MOSFET,

D2PAK surface mount,

(Requires using a clip heatsink on each lead when soldering.
After all, this uses Transistors )

Motherboard problem, yes I believe you may be correct.
Repairable? Yes.
Find a tech that can perform this? Isn't easy.
Most just want to replace motherboards.
Why? More $$$$$$$$.

(Ahem, I'm telling you about it, so I am not one of these noobs! Lol!)

My Lacie external drive clicks but won't spin up. It is about a year old, maybe less. It was working fine and just stopped working. It has not been dropped. In fact it hasn't been moved.


Your harddrive is bad, the motor bearing that spins your cylinder heads is damaged, even though the harddrive hasn't been dropped, or removed, this is a result of faulty and cheap product. Theres nothing you can do to replace the motor bearing, you will need to just get a new harddrive and install into the external hd enclosure or get a new external drive. If you decide you want to recover your files, you will need to take this harddrive out and maybe take it to bestbuy/ office depot where they will have to send your harddrive out to a data recovery center. They might be able to recover some data, or all, or none. It is a pricey move to take this step.

Data disappeared overnight


I've seen a lot of flack about these puppies lately. It's usually due to the external enclosure, the harddrive is in, and not the harddrive itself.

It is for this reason, that I suggest that you take the harddrive out of this enclosure, and install it into a decent, affordable, new external enclosure.
External enclosures are relatively cheap!

The harddrive inside the Maxtor One Touch II is a desktop size harddrive. It's a 3.5 inch one.
(3 and a half inches across in width)
It is a Sata harddrive.

These are examples of external enclosures for a Sata 3.5 inch harddrive,

(My recommendation would be the Vantec NexStar 3 NST-360 Su-BL)

This external enclosure has instructions, is easy to install the harddrive, and uses a USB cable just like your old one.
