You can try some data recovery software. You can see
http://www.asoftech.com/adr/
It tells the steps how to perform data recovery.

If above does not work, you may have to format the external hard drive (use quick format), and then use above mentioned software to scan again the external hard drive and recover your files.

Hi there,
If it shows up in 'My Computer' as a drive letter(like E: drive) but you can't access it,I would first try to recover the data on it with a data recovery program to avoid losing them.
I have succeed with Tenorshare Data Recovery. It can recover data after deeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost data due to drives crash.You can get it here: http://www.any-data-recovery.com/index.htm
Next,you can format it to check out whether it can be fixed.
If the hard drive can't be detected,you can try this way.Put the hdd in a zip-lock bag and put it in the freezer overnight. Then while it's still cold plug it into the computer and you may be able to view it in 'my computer'.
If it fails, you will have to go to a recovery office but let's hope not because it will cost you a lot of money and whether they can recover the data or not is not guarantee.
Good Luck!
This article will help.

How to access my Buffalo HD-PNTU3 external hard drive?


dropping it while turned on is fatal as it usually damages the write heads and/or the platters.
if it hit the floor, changes are it's physically damaged the mechanism.
recovering data from a drive with this damage is not cheap as you will have to send it away to be rebuilt. It's impossible to rebuild it yourself.

Buffalo ministation hd-pct500u2 won't allow me access to it


Go Here
And you will have to download the CD image and then burn it on to a disk. This would possibly be why you can't see it in your device manager because it doesn't know what it's looking for and how to run it. by downloading, burning it, and then installing it. The computer will then know exactly what the peripheral is and how to recognize it and run it as a hard drive. I sure hope this has helped.
Thanks, Cody

Check the usb port function in the computer bios settings and be sure that it is set to yes. Connect properly your external drive. If it has two wire usb connections, use both to obtain the maximum power that will be need by your drive.

Hi i got a buffalo tb external hardrive and the pc wont recognise it now after i transfered alot of data when the pc froze and i had to turn pc off mid transfer . please can you help


It is probable that since the transfer did not complete, the data on the external drive will be corrupt.

Uninstall the external drive then reinstall and format the ext drive.

You should then be able to begin the data transfer process again.

It just sounds like bad luck that your pc froze mid transfer.
When you try again, do not use the pc for any other uses until the transfer has completed.

Regards and let me know if this works for you.
