Dropped my WD portable hard drive and cannot read my files.


You can send it in to WD or a company that specializes in data retrieval from dead hard drives and have them copy off the files for you, but it will cost a furtune to do it.

I have a 320 gb acclaim portable hard drive. My mac doesn't read it, the first time I plugged it the lap asked me if I wished to format it and I said yes. Now it doesn't read it, what can I


You formatted the hard drive on your laptop in NTFS and the MAC cannot read and write to this formatted NTFS hard drive.
THE FIX
Format the hard drive using your laptop BUT this time format it in FAT32.
The MAC can read and write to a FAT32 formatted hard disk, so now you can exchange data between the MAC and the Windows laptop.

My portable drive is not recognised many times


The format of your drive is probably not correct. If data is not stored on your hard-drive, format it to NTFS if on Windows, or Mac OS Extended (Journaled) if on a Mac. If there is data, back it up to a computer that can read it and then format the drive.

Portable hard drive won't save info. Message says drive is read only


While the drive is attached to your system and you can access it, open "Computer" or "My Computer" (depending on your operating system), then Right-Click on the drive and a menu will appear. At the bottom of that menu click on "Properties" and then make sure the drive is not marked as "Read Only". Also, go to the security tab in the "Properties" window and make sure your Administrator account and User account have Write Access to the drive.

If the above does not resolve your issue, make sure there's no write protection switch of some sort on the drive. I've never seen one like that, but it's worth checking.

Also, you could try unplugging the drive, reboot the computer, then plug the drive back into the computer once it boots back into Windows.

I hope this helps!

Best Regards,

James

Hello

Here is something you can try.

Have a good listen if you plug in your drive to hear if the drive spins up, if not, the drive is not getting ant power. This can be a result of a blown circuit board.

If the drive makes a clicking noise when you plug it in, the drive is broken. Have a listen and let me know.

Kind regards
Andrea

Problem with Iomega Portable Hard Drive


Sounds like the drive is dead, even though it powers up the disk might not be spinning or the read heads could be stuck. Depending on the data you have on it and if you have it backed up or not, you could send it out for to have the data pulled off it but I warn you it is not cheap.

I borrowed a MadDog portable hard disc read but Windows won't see


If Windows does not detect the hard-drive, then the electronics on the hard-drive are "dead", and only a professional "Data Recovery Service" should be retained to pull data from the hard-drive.

P.S. Be sure that the jumper on the hard-drive is set to 'MASTER', not to 'SLAVE', not to 'CABLE SELECT'.
