I/O device error


Hard drives are easily damaged beyond repair by dropping them on the floor.
There is no way of fixing this hard drive, if you need to recover your data, then there are companies that can recover data off faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

Hello my wife accidentally tripped over the cord of my WD My Book Essential Edition external harddrive and now it no longer works. I could understand if it fell from an elevated posistion but It was...


It could be that the data cable separated somewhere not visible, however, it is much more likely that the hard drive its self is damaged. The platters inside the drive spin at very high speeds, the read/write heads pass between the moving platters( very close, but not touching). If a read head does come in to contact with any of the platters while they are spinning, the usual result is a ruined hard drive. Laptop hard drives have systems built in to enable them to survive a certain amount of shock while they are on, but drives meant for use with desktop machines normally have no protection. So, unfortunately even small shocks, like being kicked over while sitting on the floor, can cause a ruined drive.

My Seagate portable 320gb external hard drive fell on the floor now my computer and laptop don't see it( won't let me get in to the hard drive) , how do I fix this , Important files on it Help please


Since this external hard drive is USB powered and felt on the floor, you could have a broken USB connector or interface card, both located inside hard disk case, you should contact Seagate technical support or repair service, or if you have electronics skills, you could open and check hardware by yourself.

Hard Disk Repair


ummmm. the hard disk drive (aka harddrive) doesnt burn disc, and doesnt have a disc slot, i think your talking about the cd drive, it that case, the easiest thing to do is find a old harddrive and take its drive, repairing the drive takes to long,



BUT.... what you can try which sometimes works for me is remove the cover of the drive and try it then, sometime the cover can get bent and it puts pressure against the disk and stops it from spining



BUT IF YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT THE HARD DRIVE then something isnt right, try ordering a ubuntu cd from www.ubuntu.com (there free) install it through windows and then boot into it and setup your software sources and go to add/remove and check the option on the list that says "all open source" or whatever and search gnome, find gnome baker, install it, and try burning a disc then


WHAT I AM TRYING TO SAY IS

it may not be a hardware problem at all, it may just be a software issue.



hope i helped at least a little

Toshiba external Hard drive not working


I suggest to connect the harddrive straight to the computer as a slave disk, coz i think the casing power has been damaged. make sure u set its jumper as slave, the harddrive in the machine which contaoins windows should be the master.
