Question about Trekstor (21329) 250 GB USB Hard Drive

Hi there, I bought the Trekstor External Hard Drive for almost 3 years. Lately i have the problem with it. The symptom is when i turn it on, it makes a sound like motor starting, and ends of the sound like something stuck with 3 times tick, tick, tick. It happens then over and over again, if i do not turn it off. Would you mind telling what this problem is, and can i fix it or i must get a new one? Thanks for your help, and much appreciated!!!!

I have an answer on how to fix the Trekstor Datastation "Removable Disk" problem.

I also own a Trekstor Datastation 500GB and had the same problem even though it worked for several months then all of a sudden when I tried to hook it up to another computer, it stopped working. It would recognize the USB connection but you could not read the drive as it would say "Removable Disk".

In "Device Manager" it recognizes the drive as Sundata USB2SATA. But what it really should be is "WDC WD50 00AAVS-32ZTB0 USB Device" or something similar to that. For those that are wondering, yes, the hard drive is a Western Digital Hard Drive. Western Digital Caviar to be exact.

Solution: You need to open the cover to the hard drive and reconnect the hard drive to the connector on the board. It's that simple!

It is very loose and this model is not well designed so it can easily come off if you accidentally knock over your hard drive or move it to another location. The hard drive is held in place by screws on a holder where there is room for the screws to slide if the screws are not tight enough.

You'll need a T10 screwdriver bit to remove the cover and a Phillips screwdriver to adjust the hard drive.

NOTE: Doing this will probably voids your warranty but trust me, it works and it's really easy and quick to do. Took me 15 minutes.

Is your drive external or internal? If it's external, see what happens when you plug it into another computer. If it is internal, see if you can reformat it using the operating system's reformatting program by paying close attention the information the computer is trying to tell you.

Mechanical damage. Last possibility to retrieve the data on it: open the case, extract the hard disk, put it in a desktop and try to access it in there. If even this fails then it's dead, junk it.

Good day, I cannot access my TrekStor external hard drive. Is there a way I can get it to work without formatting it and losing the data? I am running Windows 7. Kind Regards, Dries


Hi AHPretorius:
Do you have access to a Windows XP machine that you can try to use the drive with? Maybe a friend's computer? I would try using it with such a system and run chkdsk on the drive to make sure that the partition is healthy; otherwise, you might want to buy the DiskInternals program that may be able to help you revive the partition.

At the least, the device is "unreliable", and it would be wise to replace it, either by exercising the warranty (if the warranty still is valid), or by opening the enclosure, removing the disk-drive, buying a new (and compatible) disk-drive, inserting the new disk-drive, and closing-up the enclosure, to create a "new" external storage-device.

This is probably a bad sector on your hard disk. Connect it up and try this:
1. Start > Run > type in cmd then click OK to get a command prompt.
2. Type in chkdsk e: /r (replace e: with the drive letter of your external hard drive).
