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 program to recover your files.

Yes,you can easily recover data by using a data recovery program.
Try this one called Tenorshare Data Recovery. It can recover data after deeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost data due to drives crash, physical damage,system sabotage, virus corrupted partitions,ect.
You can get it here: http://www.any-data-recovery.com/

Good day EAHMED
If the drive makes lot of sound , this means mechanical damage and you must fear your data are gone for ever due to the several recovery attempts .
You could still try connecting the device right inside a healthy computer , strait to the motherboard .
You could also try a recovery tool , from here for instance http://www.geckoandfly.com/3163/crashed-hard-drive-hard-disk-data-recovery-software-tools-and-service/
If this still does not work consider taking your device to a recovery office but you need to know if your data are worth the cost price . It's very very expensive .
Best regards .

I connect my wd 1600js hard drive to my computer and it doesn't recognise it at all


Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your "((MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error even something as small as a faulty electrical extension or fan lead can cause this problem

follow the troubleshooting procedure a computer needs all of the data and electrical current to travel through every device and to have an end to be able work properly

a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working hope this helps also it could be a dirty computer clean all of the dust from your computer you could use a vacuum cleaner but whatever you use make absolutely sure there is no moisture gets to anything in your computer

also check the Cmos battery and computer ram make sure they are securely seated

hope this helps

It make tic noise when the hard drive is running


This sound is the heads of the disk hitting. The drive should be backed up immediately to another.
You can put this drive into a drive enclosure to clone it to another.
This drive will stop working and there is no telling how soon that failure will occur.

Running DIAG504fcd.iso says no hard drive detected


It's possible the hard drive disks are not spinning, the power and data cables may need to be reseated. Otherwise, the drive is history.

HP ZD8000 Some questions


When it comes to overheating, its because the laptop is in a dirty environment and what happens is the fan from the cpu is sucking up all the dirt and dust so its getting caught up between the cpu fan vent and the heatsink thus less air flow and components getting hotter.

Just make sure your laptop is in a clean environment and has enough room to breathe when running and everything will be fine.

No as I have the new WD My Book World Edition 1T drive and have no problems mapping it after running the firmware update, but had to pull the power cord before starting the update because it kept saying the drive was in use, but was not.

WHOOPS!!!!!!!!!!!! Bad WD... they do not respond with common sense easy to fix answers. I can only write to the drive sometimes, but cannot delete from the drive at all. Then the next day sometimes all of the data is gone from the drive. It is just insane that a big company like WD cannot pull their Head out there *** and respond to basic BIG Problems like this with their equipment.

Good luck and best wishes to ALL! I will probably return it and try a different brand... I do IT for a living... I do not know it all, but I do know they are out of their tree for not addressing a lot of common issues on their web-site or via tech support.

I have reset, modified security settings, rebooted, etc... but no luck so far.

I have a basic intel motherboard, Q9450 CPU, 4GB of ram, internal raptor drive, Gigabit NIC connected to a Linksys Gigabit Wi-fi router via cat5 cable to the switch, and the Famous Piece Of **** WD My Book World Edition 1T drive connected to the switch via cat5 cable.

O yeah, when I first connected the best transfer was 500Kbps... After the firmware updated it is up to 6MBps... Huge inprovement if I could reliably write the data, delete the data, save files, etc. and know that the data will still be there tomorrow.

Good Luck and Best Wishes to All!
