Question about Western Digital My Book Essential Edition (WDG1U5000N) 500 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Thank you sir

Thanks so much, i posted and you replied so quickly. I was wondering what type of place i should look for. There's a best buy with a geek squad but i've seen them mis diagnose a couple of friends' pieces of technology and i'm not sure if that's the greatest place. Any suggestions?

You need a place that can repair a hard drive. Geek Squad doesn't do that. You could Google something like:

Hard drive repair in Seattle.

Replacing Seattle for wherever you live.

Hope that helps you out.

ERROR FLASH DISK : used space 0 free space 0 "read data is 0 , the data not explorer' Please fix the problem, Thanks


click start control panel administrative tools computer management disk management right click on your drive select properties click tools you should see click check now click start two boxes

automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors place then a tick in both boxes then select check now start

you might tick one box then return after its finished the first repair then return and tick the second box you should not do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage this drive

I found that you get best results by ticking one box then returning after it has finished then tick the other box

If you need more help with this post a reply

hope this helps you

Dear Sir,

Here is the Procedure for Connecting External Drives to Computer.Several brands of computer does not recognise external drives when connected to USB expansion slots,and Slots of front panel,So connect your Ext HDD to back side onboard Slots.Because there is a lack off USB power surge voltage to detect a large capacity exteral drives.Some time it is does not recognise by many computers,when USB power surge voltage is low.

Hi Francoise,

Sorry I didn't notice your new question, you can add comments to the existing ones and I will be alerted much quicker.

As for your location, I would think your best options would be Armor-IT in Saskatchewan, Canada, or CBL Data Recovery in New York State.

If it turns out to be a Basic recovery, Armor-IT is cheaper and usually faster, however if it requires a clean room you will need to have them transfer it to a facility like CBL for the higher end services.

Armor-IT operates through email contact: armor-it @ shaw.ca or by phone 3 0 6 2 2 2 1 6 8 3.

If you choose CBL let me know and I will get a case # opened for you and reply back with it.

Talk to you soon,


Chris

Harddrive has no Total size and Free space on my windows explorer


yes, probably this can be solved.

does the harddrive still have a letter assigned?

if so. go into command prompt (start->run->type"cmd")
when the black window pops up write:

chkdsk x: /r (where x is the letter assigned to your 120gb disk)


please reply if your harddrive doesnt have a letter assigned.

Hdd c: problem


Quick format only marks the disc as empty.
Try performing a CHKDSK /F /X /R C:
also do a full format next time, you may want to replace the hard drive, or you could try a program like HDD REGENERATOR or SPINRITE to fix it. These programs may not fix the hard drive as if it is too damaged but they may help in some problems.

External hard drive will not turn on


Try a new enclosure, the case is just that. A hard drive cannot actually repaired. You cant open it and fix it. It's either reliable and functioning or not. Purchase a new enclosure and test the old drive. Data recovery should be the last option..most places charge a down payment on a car, and most of the time ( in my 12 years ) its the cheap enclosure.

Keep me posted.
