SOURCE: How to open Hitachi LS-1000-EMEA 1TB external

Get a couple of guitar picks. With the unit upside down, you will see a curved ridge above the power and USB sockets, use your thumb to apply pressure upwards to this ridge. This will allow you to push a guitar pick between the dull plastic lid and the shiny plastic case, this is so the lid can slide clear of the case. Next go to the front of the unit and wrestle the other pick into the curved leading edge between the lid and the case. When it's in, you should find the lid will rise up a couple of millimeters. Now PUSH the pick towards the back of the unit. For me, the lid flew off undamaged and I could now access the circuit board and drive.

The 'RECYCLER' folder is the Windows "Recycle Bin".

Only a computer-virus would put a copy of itself into that folder.

So, your only way to solve your problem is to reinstall Windows.
Choose "Advanced Install" and choose to install to 'C:\WINDOWS2',
definitely not to 'C:\WINDOWS'. Then, you'll be able to access all your documents
from the "original" installation of Windows.

I need a new circuit board for 1.0TB Hitachi external hard drive. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement


The cheapest way will be to buy the same drive again. Spare parts are very scarce and for that reason very expensive. When you want yo save the data on your drive, and you think the board is defect, think this will be the cheapest option.

My Hitachi LS-1000-EMEA-SE is powered. I have 12V DC and correct polarity. It does not communicate with my PC


this is a USB external drive.
it must have 12v power pack, at full amperage, using the wrong power pack , will cause the drive to fail to start up, they need 2 amps to start.
next you listen to drive , is it spinning? (ear to case)
yes, good, no, then its dead. end of story. (wires fell off inside?)
next , when you plug it in, (windows. OS? what version, windoz 98? or w8)
windows goes Ding dong, telling you the USB device was just pugged in. did it? if not try another USB port. , you said PC
what PC? name it.? laptop.,netbook, desktop, what>?
if USB cant find it, then the drive is not reporting in,
if USB sees it, then use disk manager, does it see the drive>?

Some PC"s the USB ports can be off, turn them on. in the BIOS.

Hitachi LS-1000-emea 1.0TB usb pushed into drive


Sometimes if you tip it upside down and shake it in the general direction, it could slide back down.

If not, you will have to take off most of the screws, remove all the parts and find out why it happened in the first place. (It shouldn't happen)

I dropped Hitachi external drive...


If you have no backup and your drive is damaged, that is it, no data.
Plug the usb in with your drive, leave your computer looking for the drive. If windows, it may take some time. If Mac it won't be long. If neither can see it, the TOC is damaged and it will need a computer engineer to try and recover the drive.

I'd be willing to bet that your drive is formatted in FAT32, which has a single-file cap of 4GB. Reformat the drive in NTFS or EXFAT and you should not have any more problems.

Locked


We found out after the Geeksquad screwed up on a harddrive recovery that the Maxtor one touch is auto formated for the PC. And if you have an Apple you can see the data but it is all locked. In order to unlock you have to save a copy of the data elsewhere, wipe the drive clean, and reformat it.

That might be your problem as well?
