If the drive only uses USB to power-up then most likely the internal power board has failed. If it has a external power supply, then you would want to test that using a multimeter to see if it is still outputting power. Alternatively the hard drive itself could have gone bad (when you plug it in to the computer can you hear the hard making repeating clicks - usually in a pattern). If the hard is still good it can extracted from the enclosure and put into a new aftermarket one such as this: 2.5" sata enclosure

When I connect it to my laptop (or ANY other computer/laptop) the blue light on the external hardrive turns on and I can feel that it is working, but it simply doesnt get read, the computers dont recognise...


Open the enclosure.
Separate the disk-drive from the USB-to-disk-drive adapter.
Connect the disk-drive as a 'slave' disk-drive in a desktop computer, and see if you can read the files.

If not, search online for a professional 'data recovery service' -- for a FEE, they can repair a disk-drive just long-enough to copy your files onto a new disk-drive.

I think you will find that the card works fine but your computer doesnt recognise the card reader properly. Windows 98 does not properly recognise most usb devices but Windows 98SE does although I am not sure if it will recognise usb2 properly.

Drive not recognised


Try re-mounting your drive after a fresh re-boot of your computer. If the drive came with the manufacture's software to allow it to communicate with your computer, then try removing this software from your system and re-installing it again. This will repair a corrupt driver or I/O program. Try using the drive with a new or different firewire cable. Other users have reported this drive working again after replacing the cable.
