Question about Buffalo Technology (HD-HB250U2) 250 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Failure to start up

I have a Buffalo HD-HB250U2-WR and have never had problems before. After turning on the system, it starts up and tries to connect, but then it seems like it resets because it clicks and then the whirring noise starts over. After doing this for a couple of minutes, the system shuts down automatically. Is there anything I can do to fix this or retrieve the data I have saved on it?

If the drive clicks and whirs and repeats, then I'm afraid it is dead. The only way to get any data off it will be to contact one of those expensive data recovery companies. Sorry!

Unfortunately I formated my BUFFALO Ext HDD (HD-PE160U2). While restoring the data, I stopped the scanning inbetween. After that its not detecting from any system or laptop. Can u pls suggest me any...


Dear Shaji,

I think u used File recover software for recovering the file. Same thing happened to me also. My brother got one HDD from his friend. I will explain u, how to recover or to detect HDD.

I have a suggestion.

I think u r believing in god. So first pray and put the HDD in USB port. After that also, if u are getting same issue means, you can give this HDD to some other great intelligent beautiful people... Like your MACHU (cousin)

Power turns off


Hi,

1. pls check buy plugging in some other pen drive or other usb device and check same power off happens after ten mins. If it is so, then the problem is with ur usb drive. Servicing might be needed.

2. If the above device works fine even after 10 mins, then the problem is with ur hard drive controller. You have to reach out to a service station or replace the controller.

3. If you are sure that the problem is not because of the above 2 scenarios, pls reply back

Thanks.

My hard drive keeps asking me for administrator


Most probably you are logged on as a user that doesn't have local administrator rights, which may be needed to install hardware.

My PC frozen when I connect Buffalo Technology 250 GB HD


Hi,

This generally means you have a hardware failure in the drive or enclosure. The simplest way to test which is to have a hardware tech move the drive into a new enclosure and see if it works.

This will void your warranty if you do it, so, if the drive is under warranty and there are no files you consider valuable on the drive, call the manufacturer for warranty support.

If you value the data more than the drive is worth then take it to your local hardware vendor and ask them to test the hard drive in a new enclosure. Good odds it will work this way but if not you may need the help of a data recovery specialist.

In North America I use Armor-IT, if you are in a different region and the new enclosure fails to garner results, comment back with your region(Country, State, City) and I will supply you with the closest reputable facility.

HDD is not dedected.


the first thing that pops up in my mind is a power problem. check if the hard disk starts making a 'spinning' noise when you plug in the power chord and turn the disk on. when you hear a ticking noise instead, it means the disk is broken. be sure it only makes the spinning noise. if it does, connect the usb-cable between the disk and the computer. if the disk is not recognised, replace the cable. if still not ok, post what you did as a comment, and please be as accurate as possible, because this problem may have several causes.

Hi i got a buffalo tb external hardrive and the pc wont recognise it now after i transfered alot of data when the pc froze and i had to turn pc off mid transfer . please can you help


It is probable that since the transfer did not complete, the data on the external drive will be corrupt.

Uninstall the external drive then reinstall and format the ext drive.

You should then be able to begin the data transfer process again.

It just sounds like bad luck that your pc froze mid transfer.
When you try again, do not use the pc for any other uses until the transfer has completed.

Regards and let me know if this works for you.

Windows will not boot


Your PC will be set to boot from USB first. Go into the BIOS and set the PC to boot from hard disk first. Respond here if you need to know how to do this.
