Question about Buffalo Technology 1TB DriveStation TurboUSB (2x500) External Hard Drive
Yes it will. Try it on another unit and see if you can get access to your files. If not , then your only recourse is to use file recovery freeware.

SOURCE: my buffalo external hard disk
it is a PNP (PlugNplay) device. Try using a different cable to connect to your pc. Should the problem remain, hook it up to a different computer and if it doesn't see the drive, it will be an electronic circuit failure inside the box. The data is still on the hhd but you will have to obtain a new circuit to bring the hhd back online for use.

SOURCE: WHEN I PLUG MY EXTERNAL
An external storage-device has four major components:
* the USB cable
* the power-adapter
* the disk-drive inside the enclosure
* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.
One of these components has failed.
Try a different USB cable.
Try connecting to a different USB port on your computer.
Try connecting to a USB port on a different computer.
Take a "multi-meter" and measure both the voltage and amperage output from the AC adapter, and compare with the specifications on the label on the adapter.
Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and then connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if it works at all.
Purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.
Get the part-number and serial-number from the label on your disk-drive, and access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status", to see if they will replace the device, at minimal cost to you.

SOURCE: I have the Buffalo HD-CX2
If it shows up in 'My Computer' as a drive letter(like E: drive) but you can't access it,I would first try to recover the data on it with a data recovery program to avoid losing them.
I have succeed with Tenorshare Data Recovery. It can recover data after deeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost data due to drives crash.You can get it here: http://www.any-data-recovery.com/index.htm
Next,you can format it to check out whether it can be fixed.
If the hard drive can't be detected,you can try this way.Put the hdd in a zip-lock bag and put it in the freezer overnight. Then while it's still cold plug it into the computer and you may be able to view it in 'my computer'.
If it fails, you will have to go to a recovery office but let's hope not because it will cost you a lot of money and whether they can recover the data or not is not guarantee.
This article will help.
