SOURCE: Hardware Malfunction Error
Hi, This is a common problem with external storage. Please refer to http://www.fixya.com/support/t191153-device_recognized Below is a copy of my response to a similar post. Based on your post/description: 1. Your PC does not recognize the external hard drive via its USB connection - try on a different computer - if it is still a no go, then it's not a PC problem; 2. Try replacing the cable - again if a no go, so it's not an interface/cable problem; 3. That leaves you only with the My Book itself as the possible at fault. An external hardrive would consist of 2 main parts, the electronic board and the hard disk itself. The board seldom (if ever) fails. Its function is to provide conversion/interface from the SATA/IDE connectors of the HD to the out USB/Firewire. The HD more often than not fails. Most external storage uses a standard HD inside the enclosure. Your possible options aside from running manufacturer's diagnostic and/or third party recovery software are: a. Claim warranty/replacement; b. Replace the HD only; c. Physically remove the HD and connect it direct inside a desktop either as IDE or SATA; d. Seek services of professional data recovery firms (if data/files are mission critical); Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
