Question about Magic GigaBank (IUSB12HD10) 12 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive
My IO Magic GigaBank 12 GB USB 2.0 hard drive is not recognized. I have rebooted, It does not show up under disk management. I use VISTA and it has worked before. The blue light is on but not recognized.
The clicking sound is almost always a bad sign. It generally indicates a failure in the hardware. Unfortunately there's no way to tell if the failure is inside the drive or if it is on the circuit board without some serious diagnostics. I work as a data recovery specialist and see some of these drives cross my bench every month. The ones with internal damage can be very expensive to repair as they need to be disassembled in a clean room and have the pallets moved into a replacement drive shell just to get the files.
The good news is some 60% of the ones I see just have a circuit board failure and can be recovered affordably(relative standard). If you still need your files recovered and consider them worthy of a small investment, generally anywhere from $150-$350, you can request a quote by email @ "armor(dash symbol)it" at shaw.ca
