If you have overcharged the harddrive, you have probably burned it and you need to go to a harddrive recovery specialist to recover any information you really want from there.

or, you might have only fried the circuits and then you need to go to a hardward technician to repair the circuits around the harddrive.

either way, it requires physical work.

External hard drive won't start up

assuming that "wont start up" means that the drive letter is not visible thru windows explorer/my computer, which is already installed and booted from an internal hard drive...

the seagate drives, often, require a patch to work with some windows installs- especially if it is larger than 3 terabytes, and occasionally, if larger than 1 terabyte. if this is the case, the patch is most easily obtained by emailing customer service.

if this is not the case, please provide more specifics as to your computer, your version of windows, and exactly what it is not doing when you say 'not starting"

My Iomega LDHD250U 250 GB USB External Hard Drive's Power and Usb ports WILLNOT CONNECT!!!!!!! Please help ive been trying to figure out why all day.

Dear Friend, Your I-Omega case might be bad or the controller inside that connects everything. I suggest you to get: and pulled your hard drive enclosure apart, then removed your hard drive and connect with the external adapter. Usually comes with a SATA or IDE connector for data and power adapter. After connecting everything plug into your PC and it should be able to recognize.
Good Luck#

I have an elements hard drive MDL:WD5000C035. When plugged in the green light on connecter will flicker once and then not at all and the blue light on the hard drive will not come on at all.


Typically, faulty adapters that have a green led or light when having no drive connected, stay on when powered. Once connected to the drive, the power led on the adapter turns off.

Sometimes the adapter can be replaced under warranty.
Select Warranty Check on the site for End User Costumers:
Select your country and enter the Serial Number, sometimes near the barcode ( not the model number you mentioned ).

When the adapter is still under warranty you do NOT have to fill in a sheet for an RMA ( Product Replacement form) for the hard drive.
You can make a phone call using the number that is free from charges. Look on this page for your country for phone support:

When the adapter is out of warranty, you can look for a replacement in the WD shop. See next site:!!&p_li=&p_topview=1

La cie hard drive mount issues

I had the same problem and surprisingly, after many attempts to get the drive to mount with different connections, etc., the problem turned out to be the power adapter. If you've got the same kind of adapter on another drive, switch it out and see if your drive shows up. Good luck.
