We have been using a 2 TB Samsung G3 Station External Hard Drive to connect to the TV through a laptop. One day it was working next day no power seems to be going through it. The light doesn't come on...

Assuming you don't hear any activity it might be the power supply that has died. Check if it's under any warrant.. if not you can always rescue the hard drive by taking it out of the enclosure and plugging it into your PC. Odds are it's a SATA drive. Either way.. taking it out of the enclosure will rule out of it's the hard drive or the components. Good luck.

When i put my samsung g3 station 2 TB on my pc, my pc will not boot.. When i look it up in de BIOS the C:\ is not available.. that why it cant boot.. it does not see the normal HDD. how can i solf this...

My desktop has a 6 year-old motherboard which will not start up if the external USB HDD is turned on. So I have to make sure the HDD is off before turning on the PC in the morning. After it starts booting I can turn on the HDD and everything works fine.

Does your machine work this way?

My 2TB g3 station doesnt wanna work on my mac os x 10.4.11, it says it cannot be modified.

You problem is most likely because the hard disk is formatted using NTFS which can be read on MAC OS but does not allow writing data on it. Solution is to backup your data somewhere and give it a clean format.
Click on the spotlight icon (the magnifying glass) in the upper right corner of your screen, and typing "disk utility."

Once in disk utility, select your external drive in the list on the left of the Disk Utility window, and click "erase". Select FAT32 as your file format, name the volume, and click the "erase" option.

REMEMBER TO BACKUP YOUR DATA as everything will be wiped out during a format!

Is it possible to repair Samsung G3 Station if the USB connector inside the box has been broken?

The adapter board is a common fault, I have had about 20 of these cases in the last year, and It has made me hate external hard drives. My advice, take the hard drive out, its easy enough, remove the top two rubber feet, take out the screws, pry the top open, gently lift out and take the screw out of the adapter board. Now get an external reader. I've just got a cheapo for $50 and it works great for me ( but if you want to pay more for something more reliable, I can't blame you. Keep the area reasonably dust free and hard drives you're not using in zip lock bags and you shall have much less drama, trust me.

Hi ,
I'm afraid your drive is damaged .
The best way I can think to recover your data is to extract the HDD from it's box ( box will be lost ) and connect the drive directly inside your desktop .
You could also try a recovery tool , from here for instance
