Sure, you can recover your data. but you have to rely on some data recovery program. You can try Card Data Recovery. Justinstall this program on your computer and use the function "allrecovery", after a while your deleted files will be back soon.

Control Panel, Computer Management, Disk Management. Check that your Samsung disk is present. If it is present, does it have a drive letter assigned? If not Right Click and Assign Drive Letter.

If drive not present you should check power and data connections.

I bought a 3.5 External hard drive enclosure for a 1TB hard drive. The PC recognizes it but not under the removable drives


right click on "My Computer" and select "Manage". Then go to "disk management" once loaded you will see your drive. You probably have to initialize the drive and assign it a drive letter. all that can be done from right there.

Good Day Daniellevion!

Have you seen a hard disk inside your computer? That is exactly what is inside in an external drive.

You mentioned that you dropped the external drive once, and that could be the reason why your computer was unable to recognized it as external drive.

Danielle! The connectors of the hard disk inside the Samsung External Drive (or other term is hard disk enclosure) might be loosened.

If you can open the enclosure and expose the two connectors, disconnect them and reseat properly.

That might fix it!

Hello there! I've got problem with my MP0603H Samsung hard drive. It is not visible in my computer but in programs like testdisk or getmydataback ntfs data are visible and I back up them. Last...


Wow - Have you tried beating it with a kitchen sink?
The first problem is - Not visible in windows.. Sometimes windows will try to assign an existing drive letter to a new device, because that new device was previously that same drive letter. A common problem with usb drives. Not really heard of it with hard drives, or is this a USB HD?

Go into Drive manager again, and locate the drive by its name, in the lower window. Right click on the drive and choose change drive letter. Assign it a drive letter you know is unused. It should now show up in the windows explorer with the drive letter you assigned. Now you can right click the drive and choose format. If you have trouble with format, then the drive might be locked by special backup software or hard drive password. I cannot cover that here and now. Others may help if you repost with further problems.

I would like to know if I help you. Good luck.

Windows cannot recognize my western digital external hard drive. I am getting an error msg: "Windows cannot recognize this device". I need to retrieve my files! Help!


The device has suffered a major failure. If you're lucky it's in the electronics of the case so take it apart, extract the hard disk inside, put it in another external case (or directly inside a desktop) and access it this way. If even then the disk isn't recognized then the hard disk itself has died and all the data on it is lost.

I have a WD external hard drive USB 2.0 750 GB. It was working just fine for many months, and suddenly, my laptop won't "read" it -- it's not listed/detected in "my computer." I thought there was something...


If the device is recognized and not listed as a driver in the Explorer, then the disk is not recognized as having been partitioned and formatted. You can use the Disk Manager to see if there is anything listed on the disk.
Start - > right-click My Computer -> Properties
In the management console, go to disk management and check your disks. The external disk should be there and then you can see the partitions and drives assigned to it.
If there is nothing on it, your MBR could be damaged, which needs to be restored.

Alternatively you could partition and format it, but then you'd loose the data on it, so that is a last resort.

I think a program called Acronis Disk Director Suite can restore MBR's. Have a look at this external hard disk troubleshooting article.

External hard disk problem


control panel, computer management, storage section, disk management. you may have to download the administrative tools for windows xp/2000/vista to find this. if you have multiple memory card readers, the drive letter assignments to these drives are conflicting with the drive letter that is being assigned to your external hard drive. assign the partition of your hard drive a letter not used down in the alphabet (such as x:) for e*X*ternal.
