I had all my data informations in this HDD but I cannot open it now. It always shows when it access a mass storage drive in USB but I cannot access it.


Hello and thank you for using Fixya's services.

You can take the actual hard drive out of the casing and slave it to a working desktop. You can then retrieve your information and use the computer to reformat the HDD. After this put the HDD back in the casing and try to attach to computer. If it doesn't read, then more than likely the USB connection or casing is messed up. You can always keep it slaved to desktop and continue to use, except now it will be internal and not removeable.

Hope this helps!

Connect external hard disk IBM travel star 80GB USB port 2


Unless it's windows 98 you don't need a driver. If your computer can't see it, it's probably broken. Try plugging it in to another computer and see if it can see it

You can buy an adaptor that will connect your hard drive to a pc.
Ribbon cable from your secondary drive on pc goes into the adapator. Adaptor also coonects to laptop harddrive.
You also need to change from being a master driveto be a slave drive . see linkbelow.

Ibm Travelstar usb 2.0


I assume you can't see it in Windows? When you connect it can you hear the drive spin up? If not then there is a hardware problem - motor failure, jammed platter. If you hear it clicking or clunking then it is likely to be a stuck head or actuator. If so sometimes you can give the drive a sharp **** to and fro to try and spin the platter - don't do to long though. If this doesn't work then you would need the data removed by a data retrieval company.
If the drive does spin freely you may be able to fix by doing in order:
running check disk (properties of drive then tools)
using a data recovery program of which there are a few
using commercial data retrieval company.
Hope this helps
