I've a Samsung G2 Portable HX-MU050DC/GW 500GB. - I was using it fine on PC1 when a Scan Disk Message Window (bad sector) popped out. I did a scan disk, nothing happened and continue copying and pasting...


when you see "bad sector" you need to not only run scandisk, you need to tell it to "automatically repair bad sectors" if you didn't do this, then you have written to the bad sectors and that data can not be retrieved. As for the MAC issue, you didin't say what format your HDD was, if it was FAT32 it should mount on MAC, but not if it is NTSC as MAC can't read it. If I were you I would copy all the files from your HDD to a wiindows machine and then run scandisk again, only this time make sure to auto repair, these sectors will now be gone, and its not a great loss and does happen quite ofter unfortunately. The data you have written to the bad sectors "CAN NOT" be recovered, you might get part of it, but most likely not. Good Luck

My WD 1TB hard disk drive shows me loaded with 300GB capacity of folders but when they are not seen on my pc


1) Open any folder on your your computer and go to: Tools > Folder options > View tab > check "Show hidden files and folders" and uncheck "Hide protected operating system files". 2) Look at your hard disk again, if you still can't see any files on it, there must be an error of your disk. To solve it, go to: My Computer (or Win+E keyboard shortcut) > Right click on the drive representing the 1TB hard disk > Properties > Tools > Check Now... > Check both boxes to fix errors.

Can not remove folder from HD


Try checking the hard drive with check disk (Run the command chkdsk /f, from the run command). This is mostly due to some cross-linked files and folders on the hard drive.

This may also happen due to some virus, so update your antivirus and run a complete disk check.

Hope that helps,

Xp did not give drive a letter


Go into Disk Management...Look for your drive and either it has not been formatted and assigned or just not assigned you can right click on the disk and assign to a drive letter.

Hard drive connects and then disconnects quickly


Sounds like a bad solder joint or break on the circuit board. If the data on it is important, you may need to use a data retrieval service.
