1 Answer

Data recovery I have a 40GB external hard disc which i connect via usb port to my toshiba laptop.The external hard disc developed a problem,it was not mounting, but with the use of getdata back software i was able to retrieve data from it and then copy the data to my laptop,after which i formatted the external hard disc and started saving entirely new data in it. Unfortunately due to a fire outbreak, my laptop was burnt to a useless state.This tragedy caused me to buy a new HP laptop of 250GB hard disk ,2G RAM and 1.87GHz processor speed.My external hard disk however was not lost in the fire.The external hard disk also works well with my new laptop.My problem now is ';how possible is it to retrieve the information that was initially in the external hard disk before i formatted and saved new information on it?';Is there any software or technique that can be used?I am referring to the information that was on the external hard disk when it had a problem, that is the info i was able to save to my laptop using get data back software .I tried using getdata back software again but it only displays the info that is on the hard disc after formatting.I will be overjoyed if a solution to this is been posted to me ,considering the importance of this data.I can be reached via my email at binbuba@yahoo.com.Thank u. Still need a solution for this problem

Hello, What cable or adaptor do I need to transfer all data from the hard disk of my Toshiba Satellite Pro A200 to my new laptop via USB port? Thanks.


You won't be able to transfer hard drive data by plugging one computer into another via USB. In order to transfer data, you will need to remove the hard drive from the Toshiba Satellite Pro, use an external hard drive enclosure, and attach that to your new computer with any USB cable.
The hard drive can be taken out by removing screws on the bottom of your laptop. The drive can be found in the bottom left of this picture: http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-a205/big/toshiba-satellite-a200-a205-02.jpg

I cannot connect my external hard drive through the sata port


Install the external hard drive into an USB hard drive adapter case. You can then connect this into the Toshiba's USB port. The Toshiba will see this as an external storage device.

Hi! i have an external hard disc Toshiba PX1396E-3T01. i've connected the divice to my pc but the red light doesn't turn blue but instead keeps on blinking blue. what's wrong?


An external storage-device has four major components:

* the USB cable

* the power-adapter

* the disk-drive inside the enclosure

* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter inside the enclosure.

One of these components has failed.

Try a different USB cable.

Try connecting to a different USB port on your computer.

Try connecting to a USB port on a different computer.

Take a "multi-meter" and measure both the voltage and amperage output from the AC adapter, and compare with the specifications on the label on the adapter.

Open the enclosure, and remove the disk-drive, and then connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, to see if it works at all.

Purchase a new, compatible, disk-drive, and install it in the enclosure, to "revive" your external storage device.

Get the part-number and serial-number from the label on your disk-drive, and access the manufacturer's web-site, and use "check warranty status", to see if they will replace the device, at minimal cost to you.

There exist commercial "data recovery" services that can try to repair your device, just long-enough to rescue and copy your files. For example, see: https://services.seagate.com/index.aspx?lng=en-US for a "no data - no charge" guarantee.

Sony Vaio laptop could not access 1TB external hard drive


try other usb port, or other computer and see whether the hdd is detected. If still not, try to go to device manager ( http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000833.htm ), and then assign a drive letter to the hdd. After that, try to access it from Computer, if not able to access it, format it (use quick format) and then use this data recovery program to recover your files.

Usb 2.0 error


did you connect directly to your laptop or you connected via external USB Hub?? Your notebook model should support USB 2.0 ...so it should not face the problem you post..unless you're not connecting it directly.
takecare.
