Question about Seagate USB 2.0 External Enclosure + 400GB ST3400832A UATA 8MB 7200RPM HDD (NEWITEM31875736) Drive Case

Open Question

My seagate 250GB hard drive suddenly stopped working today. i have work and other personal files on there which i carry around. I do leave it in my bag which i take to school, but i don't drop it. I plugged it into the crappy school computers which i am currently using. When i plug the HDD into the computers it makes a bleeping sound. 2 bleeps per second and isn't booting up. I looked around and found it doesnt work with USB 1.0 usb's, but i have used my HDD on these computers before. I am seeking immediate assistance. Thanks

No, the disk doesn't appears in My Computer because the file system on it is completely corrupted - all the data is lost. To see if the hard disk itself is recoverable download, install and run this free program (select the correct disk for testing)

Hi Welcome to Fixyah,
Try to disconnect that and then check if the surface is hot then it will not take to work in a longer time. Suggest for that is try to put some heat sink and then try to connect also using other USB port. But sometimes the real problem is the enclosure and not the hardisk.

Drive not being recognised by any computer.


USB drives do pack it in. You have answered your own question, I think. Three computers cannot recognize it, must be the drive.
A fall can happen and not leave a mark. A fall to the floor is like a bomb going off for a hard drive. It sounds as if the motor is jammed.

It sounds like your hard drive is messed up. Don't worry you can have the data retrieved from your hard drive by using this online company that I highly recommend:

Seagate 250Gb external USB hard data read/write error


Well, in your case I think you can try some so-called data recovery software. It's pretty much cheaper then data recovery services.

First of ALL - Connect your external hard drive to your personal computer. And install this software Wondershare Data Recovery on the computer in order to perform data recovery. Get the program from its site.
data recovery (for Windows OS)
Mac data recovery (for Mac OS X)

Good luck. I hope that my reply has shed some light on the problem! Remember - Always make Backups of your precious data!
