Light flashing, HDD will not load, burning smell, not working please tell me my data has not been lost

being an external hard drive did the burning smell come from the connected computer or your external hard drive

open up the connected computer check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red white green black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and possibly overheat

hope it helps

Your external drive may not be coming up due to a defected usb adapter, this might also explain why your computer fails to recognize the device. Try getting a new adapter and see if that works

try other usb port, or other computer and see whether the hdd is detected. If still not, try to go to device manager ( ), 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 asoftech data recovery program to recover your files.

I used this file recovery program before, quite easy to use and works well for me.

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?

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.
